    How much would you pay...??

    Saw this advert on the GB website Guntrader.. check out the link..!!

    https://www.guntrader.uk/guns/pistol...80127070431006

    I don't think I'd ever consider paying that price for a pistol or a rifle. Shotgun, maybe..

    I wouldn’t pay that price for any firearm. And if I did, my wife would use it on me.

    Considering Colt has come out with the Python again and that it is reported to be a better shooter; I expect that prices on the original Pythons are going to drop quite a bit. Therefore I would not spend more than the cost of a new Python for one of the old ones. Investors are quite likely to take a hard hit in relation to the originals I do believe. That listed price is ridiculous!

    Well considering that the listing is from the U.K. and guns in general are very pricey and difficult to obtain it's probably not to bad for that area. Me personally, no way.

    I keep lose watch on Colt Pythons here, because my Dad has one from when Walmart closed out their handgun sales. They are commonly around $1500-2000 here. I don't know, however, what additional value the "combat" moniker adds (I've never seen that before).

    I don't have $20000 to put on a gun and if I did, it would be a Thompson Sub-machine gun, not a pistol.

    Way more than I would ever spend on any hand gun.

    How is it that the firearm in the listing can even exist in England? The barrel and the overall length do not meet the draconian requirements of hand held guns in that country.

    And no, I have much better things to spend 20 grand on.

    The new Pythons will have no effect on the cost of the originals, if anything it will make them worth more. You can still buy a Colt 1873 SAA they have no effect on the price of the 1st or 2nd generation SAA and even some 3rd generation. Have the original 1911 or 1911 A1 the pre series 70 or original series 70 1911's taken a hit in price ? The reintroduction of the Mustang hasn't effected the value of the originals. All that said I need to sell my Colts in the UK.

    I gave away a Python, most uncomfortable handgun I've ever shot. Nice looking revolver but I found it too awkward.
