I recently purchased a 1963 Model Colt Python w/2.5" Barrel. I know they made 6000 Pythons in 1963, but does anyone know how many of that 6000 was with the 2.5" Barrel. The SN# is 25XXX. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Colt Python

Bimberger, Colt Pythons with 2.5" barrels were very common in production. It was the shortest of the Colt pythons made, the others were 4, 6, and 8 inch barrels which are just as common as a 2.5. The rarer of the barrel lengths for a colt python is the 3" barrel of which only a few hundred were made. I hope thats helpful.
