The Colt Python is known as the Rolls Royce of Colt's revolvers. First introduced in 1955, it comes in blued, nickel, and stainless versions. The Python's appearance is always striking with its hand polished metal, beautiful bluing and superb design. The smoothness of the hand-fitted action is still considered the best around. The Colt Python is one of the handfuls of guns regularly chosen to be engraved into works of art. Traditionally, it is also the most expensive of production revolvers.
