Question of the Day: How Much Would You Pay for a New Colt Python?

“The epitome of Colt’s double-action revolver line was the Python,” NRA’s American Rifleman asserts, recycling a video from 2012. “Introduced initially as a ‘deluxe Magnum’ target revolver, the Python in .357 Mag. made its debut in 1955. Not inexpensive, it sold for $125 a half-century ago.” Discontinued in 1996, today a used Python will run you from $2k to $5k, depending. I’ve heard dozens of gun guys say Colt should make it again. So…how much would you pay for perfect modern-day rendition of this classic gun?
