    Colt .357

    All.
    Colt made, stamped COLT .357 on the barrel. Came out a year or 2 ahead of the Python. Python sales killed this gun. I found this in Tucson, ARIZONA while on a gun raid last weekend. Guns raids are like panty raids, I am just older now. I still get excited.
    Anyway a couple pics.

    Very nice, and interesting, too. It's lines are a bit reminiscent of old Ruger double actions.

    I believe if memory services me correctly at one time (Trapper Gun???) advertised the Colt 357 conversion to replicate the Python. The front of the frame would be welded and contoured to accept a Python barrel. I thought about it but decided not to go that route.

    Nice gun Bill, you seem to find good deals everywhere you go. Dennis, I've seen a couple where people stuck Python barrels bought from Numrich on other Colts (like this one) & tried to pass them off as real Pythons @ a profit.

    They are nice revolvers and have a following of very dedicated owners. I have your 3 5 7's cousin without the spur hammer and with service grips. It out shoots my Pythons. I am always on the lookout for these since buying my first one. They are getting very hard to find.

    Nice wheel gun you have there. I've always been partial to the Python. A saw one of these shortly before I got my Python and the ejector rod was bent on it. I've always bought revolvers with ejector rod housings ever since seeing that. It's a great design and since it's a Colt, I'm sure it's plenty accurate enough. Take good care of it and it'll continue to serve you well.

    Bill,

    Nice, very nice. I've often wished my colt trooper mk3 had the 4" barrel.
