Colt Python: It's Back!



But will it be anywhere near as good as the original? That's the question!





According to a person on another forum, they will be stainless with forged internals.

If they produce them in blued 4 inch models I’ll probably bite if they are not off the chart price wise.

Interesting to be sure, but lots of questions here.

How do they compare? What is the cost? Will anyone under the age of 55 even care?

Guess we'll find out soon enough.

Nice. Still kick myself every day for turning down a beautiful stainless 6" Python for a Glock 17 when I bought my first handgun. The python was only $50 more.

I will care depending on the price an quality. I had the opportunity to shoot one a few years ago. It was an excellent revolver. So much nicer than my performance center revolver from S&W

*****Ok. I think they will be *better* than the original Colt Pythons. They will be cheaper than the original Colt Pythons in inflation adjusted dollars, and there will at *least* four people under the age of 55 who will care.

I have absolutely *no* special information that is not already public regarding any of the above but just want to throw my opinion and carefully considered thoughts on this subject out there since this is MDS and it's what we do here!!!!

Once these come out, I can't wait to argue with those that have original Colt Pythons telling those with new Colt Pythons how much better the originals were, how they were built by craftsmen who hand tooled each mechanism to insure perfect alignment of parts, and how the new Pythons were mostly built by mindless robots in a sterile factory with only cursory inspection by a guy whose Mom Demands Action, but gets none.

Those with new Colt Pythons will argue value and practicality, in addition to not being afraid to actually shoot their gun, as they are now more affordable than the originals in inflation adjusted dollars, and available with a variety of options, including a presentation case made of recyclable and/or compostable material, extra grips to fit smaller effeminate hands versus manly hands, and sights with limited edition "Python Eyes" Tritium night globes that change color from green to red as you shoot your new gun.

You heard all of this here first on MDS !!!
