Have a chance at one locally from an estate - the guns are being handled through an FFL friend. . Never saw one "in person" prior. Did major league smiths mark theirs in any particular way ?
It looks like new, the 4" Python barrel on the S&W 19 just appeals to me ! To me, it is in excellent condition - what would be a fair value range ?

Rare.....buy it! Not sure of value; Sorry. Colt's revolvers are typically grossly overpriced.

Later edit: oops I had it backwards.

It is a Colt Python Barrel screwed in to a Smith &Wesson revolver. No real collector value. They were done for the forcing cone geometry which was better than Smith & Wesson and the groove diameter and twist . All were beneficial for accuracy. Then Ron Power and others just rebarreled using Douglas barrels and they fell out of favor.

These hybrids can be accurate, but they don’t meet DR standards.

We had a Colt Trooper with a poorly filled Python barrel in the used display case.  We called it  a "Pooper"
