Like I should have bought. And didn't when I should have. And then never did.

Because I was then, and remain STUPID!

Enjoy!

The trigger is a thing of beauty, to be sure. Not QUITE as nice as a Python IMO. Pretty close. Better than the new Pythons.

A Boa is essentially nothing more than a King Cobra with a Python style vented barrel...same action. Actually...the Boa came first...so it's really a Trooper Mark V with a Python like barrel.

I used to own both a Boa and a NIB Viper...sold them during the big "snake gun" craze...profited mightily but still kinda wish I'd kept them. But selling them helped put the daughter through college so I can't complain.
