Default Colt Python Elite 6" Blued Value?

Advertise Here

Hey everyone,

I need some help in placing a value on the Colt Python Elite with a 6" barrel and blued finish. Its in 99% condition and doesn't even look to have been fired. I have the opportunity to get it for what to seems to be a good deal and was wondering what you all would consider a good deal on this? Colt's database shows it as being a 2003 model and the serial prefix is PE.

Modern Gun Values shows it at 900 for excellent, 1150 for perfect, and 1500 for new.

I didn't think Colt was making them in 2003....If they were they were coming out of only the Custom Shop at that point and had to sell for $1000 new by then if not more.
While mint guns command a higher price ...from my limited research nice used ones are $1000 - $1500 most days ... the Stainless ones and mint in the box stuff along with the rare editions command a higher price.
Personally, I love Pythons ...sweetest .357 revolver ever in my book, both in style and function. The 6 inch guns are easier to find than the 4 inch ones the shorter barrel usually commands a higher price.
If I had a chance to get one now I'd want one I wasn't afraid to shoot and for me ...even $1000 is pushing that envelope a bit.
I've never seen such a new gun (2003) on the market ...and one story I saw said there are those that don't like the newest or last ones made as much as the older ones ...the opinions were that while still having the typical qualities of smooth action etc ... the older ones were better. Then again ... I wouldn't hesitate for the right IMHO this is true for other name brand revolvers too ... a 50's 22 S&W I had a chance to shoot shot circles around any newer 22 I'd seen.
I don't think you'll regret having one ... unless you pay so much that you could have bought 2 S&Ws for the same price.

$2,500.00 to $4,500.00

You just have to find someone who has the money and really wants one.
