    The $75,000 Colt Python

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/847717545

    3 inch Pythons are rare, and this 3 inch Round Butt Python is one of only 15 ever made. Looks like someone wanted it real bad and hit the $75,000 Buy it Now button. You could buy about 50 real nice M27s for that or about 100 m66/m19 snubbies. In my area you can get a decent house for that too.
    Wonder if the buyer is going to shoot it?

    Previous bid was $39k!

    And here I thought $15K for a LNIB Reg Mag was out of sight. ::

    Some people have more money than brains. What, exactly, do you do w/ that? At that price it's not an investment.

    Correct. It's a status symbol.

    With there only ever having been 15 made with a round butt, I wonder if any of them were shot outside the factory? If I had the money to blow $75,000 on a revolver, I would have to shoot it. Wouldn't that blow the Colt collectors minds!

    I'll disagree; they obviously had the brains to make that type of disposable income

    "they obviously had the brains to make that type of disposable income"

    NOT obvious..many many people inherit billions of dollars, especially as the boomers kick off.

    Ultra-High priced cars..bikes..guns etc etc etc..are all about ones personal desire overwhelming any sense of practical value....and having the bank account/credit to actually make it happen.
    Ignorance is bliss

    I was watching this auction out of morbid curiosity. Short of an antique with compelling historical provenance, it amazes me to see a gun go for that kind of money.

    But then again, it's their money. If it makes the buyer happy, who am I to pass judgement? I'm sure there are plenty of people who think I'm crazy for paying current prices for S&W revolvers!
