Just a caution:
I bought a 6" Python about 10 yrs ago that I thought was stainless. I knew nothing about Colts at the time.
About 4 yrs later, I had to send it back to Colt for repair of the cylinder release.
When I got it back, the Colt paperwork indicated this was originally a blue finish gun. I called Colt thinking they had my gun mixed up with another customer's. That is when they told me mine was refinished in "hard chrome". They could not confirm if they did the work unless I paid for a factory letter. I didn't bother then.
It is a beautiful finish and had me fooled. It looks just like SS.
Can you be mad and happy at the same time? I felt cheated yet what I got was a very nice piece.
I don't think I'd have a problem getting back the $800. I paid for it.
Good luck with your new Python!
