COLT Python .357 MAGNUM Gun Lighter Restoration

Publicado em 9 Abr 2021
Restoration of a gun lighter model Colt Python .357 Magnum. I will restore this cool looking cigarette revolver lighter and make it work again.

Note: THIS IS NOT a firearm it’s a very cheap Chinese cigarette lighter model of the famous Colt Python .357 Magnum who was introduced 1955 the same year that Smith & Wesson released the .44 Magnum revolver. I got the lighter from a metal dumpster station. I was very curious to see if I could make it work again. These cheap butane lighters have a bad reputation for not working very well.

I started brushing the dirt and rust off the lighter. After giving it a little squeeze of WD40 I disassemble it and sandblasted the revolver case. It was made of very cheap metal and had a lot of pitting therefore I grinded it with fine sandpaper grit 1000 and 1500 and then I did some serious polishing of the case just to make it look ok. I cleaned all the small parts in my mini tumbler.

The handle was like the rest of the lighter made of very cheap materials. I had to drill a hole in the handle to just get it off. I cleaned the handle of this revolver with warm soap water and I grinded it with fine sandpaper and polished it with car wax. The cylinder on this Colt Python was unfortunately made of cheap plastic, so I just cleaned it with some harsh chemicals to achieve the matt black plastic look.

I think it turned out OK and I am positive surprised that I was able to light the lighter. I hope that you enjoy this restoration video. Please subscribe if you want to see more cool upcoming projects 🙂 And DON’T FORGET TO SEE my RARE WW2 PICKAXE RESTORATION -

  • So glad I found your channel! Love your work man!

  • 👌👌👌!!!!

  • Trabalho maravilhoso 🇧🇷🇧🇷

  • I subscribed to this guy because he documents the very step properly and puts time in his videos instead of other youtubers who just release a new video every day which lacks quality but this guy has quality

  • 👍

  • Very cool piece! About how much does it weigh? Looks like the real thing!

  • Imagine asking someone if they got a light and they pull this out.

  • Lindo demais

  • 4:46 surely i’m not the only 1 jump

  • Dude you are awesome, I love your vids

  • Looks like the lighter from Squid Game

  • How is it you manage to find all these lighters and such all in the same corroded conditions??

  • Seeing that skull face at 4:45 startled me haha

  • 4:45 ghot

  • These videos always put me to sleep

  • Dam I learned some thing new today keep up the great work from Odessa Texas

  • Wow ❤️ The Hardwork and the effort of Patience is the Fruits he gets every time at the last of the Work finished ❤️

  • Took me 10 minutes to realize that was a lighter and not an actual gun

  • First of all, where are you finding these corroded items to restore? Do you take a perfectly good item, soak in sea water and drag behind you car then bury for a few months then “restore” them? The Vietnam Zippo I just watched looked to be in the same condition as this. And if you’re not, who is neglecting these so badly? Just curious

  • At what point does the metal become unrecoverable? Is it an age thing?

  • Am I the only one who noticed the face in the sandblasting cabinet?? Nice touch!

  • OH!!! Its a lighter! I was about to say, that gun aint never gonna fire again!

  • 4:50 ??????

  • No one else notice the skeleton mask in the sandblaster reflection

  • Not to offend but help me understand a bit. For someone like myself, how can I tell these r real restorations and not faked by coating guns in stuff that's looks like natural corrosion or erosion?

  • I cannot believe I have slipped down the rabbit hole of restoration videos. First the viking axe, now this. Amazing work! It would be great if you would show the before and after side by side at the end of the vids.

  • Look closely at 4:44

  • Why go to all this effort to restore something that is not even real?

  • Nice

  • Fängt ja schon damit an, dass das ein Revolver und keine Pistole ist 🤦🏻‍♂️🙄

  • hey bro, you are a monster of restoration.💪

  • I'm back to watch another awesome restore

  • I know im not the only one who saw that face

  • it seems like a lie

  • im just going to take a moment and say i love your tattoos

  • Like si te diste cuenta q salió una cara en la arena

  • It’s almost like you bought the gun and deteriorated it on purpose intervals were too fresh good try

  • dude was wearing that call of duty ghost mask in sandblasting part.

  • ÔTu

  • Does any one else sew the girls face 8:40 then when he throws a piece down on it . it closes its eyes

  • Why are you adding strange faces into the sand and stuff?

  • A little squeeze lol. God bless wd40!!

  • What do you do with all the restored things? Dont u hace a store online or something? Or u just keep It yo yourself all the stuff?..

  • Looks like somebody burried a gas station lighter from 2010 in their backyard, dug it up and called it a "restoration".

  • How old was this lighter?

  • Did you know wd40 is a good cleaner for corrosion

  • A eso no se le pasa al

  • Waoooooo

  • Dang that’s gotta be a rewarding feeling when done. Came a long way to get it back to good.

  • Whoever carries that around to light their cigarettes is going to die from miscommunication. XD
