    According to Wikipedia it was a limited production Python varient, made in 1985 and AKA "Colt Combat Magnum".

    The Boa is a slightly different frame than the Python. Its actually closer to the King Cobra.

    The Boa is one of 7 "Snake revolvers" Colt made.

    1. Python
    2. Diamondback
    3. Cobra
    4. King Cobra
    5. Boa
    6. Viper
    7. Anaconda

    I need a Boa and a Viper to complete my collection.

    [:D][:D][:D] Your cracking me up. The Boa is almost identical to the King Cobra I just picked up a couple months ago. That guy is dreaming if he thinks he will get $4295 for that gun. I did a sealed bid of $1200 on a viper a couple months ago at a local auction, only to get out bid. Next time I will be there in person and just keep bidding until I win. They are very hard to find.

    Unfortunately "handguns" not listed on that dumb * "approved list" here in Cal cannot be shipped here from out of state, so that limits what I can buy via the internet.

    I would buy that right now, except that seller wont sell to Calif and the gun is not on our state approved list.
