Great catch UD!! Boa is really hard to find!! It is also the one that made me not to collect Colt anymore.......


I was taking some photos, then realized that I could take one for a 6-in python and a Mossberg 500.

Title/Question: Can I survive the night?




Answer: Of course not! Just not enough ammos!!

What's the difference between a Boa and Python? I've never even heard of a Boa pistol.

It's a Trooper V frame/guts with a. Python barrel. Only offered for distribution by Lew Horton in the 80's. Colt made 600 4" and 600 6". The first 100 pairs were offered in sequential serial numbers in cased sets. SUPER DUPER RARE. They are by no means the standout of the Colt line, but as Frank said, VERY VERY hard to find for some reason.

Tracked down another NIB 3" with pre-ban ivories . . . and a couple other snakes followed him into the den.

I know most of you have had your sets all nestled away forever but it's been the one set that has eluded me FOREVER. Always a step behind or too hesitant to pay going market (as they seemed to jump $3k a month) :bang_wall::bang_wall::bang_wall:. Finally landed a very nice set with boxes and display for a very civilized price considering this market. Always pay to ask the old "got anything else" even when making a relatively small Colt purchase.
. . . now for that Wilkerson!

Congratulation on a beautiful set and excellent score.
