First New Production Colt Python Revolver To Be Engraved
Obtained from Lipsey’s, the all-new Colt Python revolver made its trek to Tyler Gun Works in Friona, Texas. Bobby Tyler had big plans for this Python. With his hand-engraved scroll, engraver Dale Bass took this Python aesthetically to a whole different level, making it the first new production Colt Python to be engraved and authenticated with an official letter direct from Colt.
“A legacy dating back to 1955, the Colt Python was known as “the finest production revolver ever made” until it was discontinued in 2005. But after 15 years of anxiously waiting, the .357 Magnum snake gun is finally back!” This Colt Python is featured in an American Handgunner article written by Joe Kriz.
100% of all proceeds from this auction will benefit the NRA Whittington Center’s Youth Adventure Camp.
Adventure Camp is tailored to those who love the outdoors. The camp lasts two weeks. The curriculum includes learning everything outdoors. This includes firearm safety and marksmanship with rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, and handguns. There are lessons in archery and camping skills including raising tents, outdoor cooking, orienteering, and survival. They also learn to identify various wildlife and how to ethically hunt . The adventure of it all comes next.
In the last part of the camp, the teenagers are sent out on a true backcountry camping experience. They must set up their own campsites and cook their own meals. During the day, they hike and participate in the various long-range shooting courses. At night, they enjoy the friends they will make and the friendships that will last a lifetime. An experience meant to change one for the better, and for good. Words were written by Wendy LaFever in NRA Family.
