    Bad enough to make any tough ole cop cry. At one time it was probably someone's only friend in a dark alley. How does this stuff happen ?
    Anyway , enough singing the blues. Always wanted a E/I frame that was cheap enough to be able Dis/Re -assemble and in general putz around with. Try to learn something about how they work. S&Ws are easy , Colts are a mystery. Here it was $88 bucks ,out the door




    So ,as sad as it looks the internals are not bad ,bore and chambers are fine with timing better that most Colts . It does have a very problematic ,sluggish trigger return and is missing the rear sight blade.
    Currently sitting in a Ed's Red soak before wire brushing and disassembly..
    Where am I going ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and why am I in this handbasket ?

    You know my uncle , he's as honest as me . An I'm as honest as a government man can be.

    I've rebuilt worse, it's still mostly there & functional. A replacement sight & maybe a trigger return spring & she's all there. The right grip is more worn than the left, saw a lot of holster duty. It looks like maybe it got a dose of saltwater. A good scrubbing & polishing then re-blue & it will make a nice shooter.. At $88 you stole it!

    For $88 bucks I'd have bought it too, but wouldn't be sure what to do next!

    This is my $400 Colt Python with 2 1/2" barrel. It was given to a guy for a graduation present in 1978. He shot a few rounds through it and put it on a shelf in the barn. He left on a graduation trip and got a job while there. It was forgotten in the barn for thirty-nine years. The box and paperwork were disintegrated and tossed. The internals are like new and it shoots great.

    Colt's aren't much of a mystery. If you watch how they work they are actually quite simple. You got a deal for that price. Keep us posted on it's progress!

    That is a great deal at 88 dollars. That is a very economical education and a lot of fun. Looking forward to seeing the "refurbished pony".
