$1,499 for 4.25" or 6".
I wanna be like Rick in The Walking Dead so I'll be looking for the 6".
Leave it to Colt to offer a barrel length that wasn’t even part of the original lineup.
I guess $1500 isn’t bad if it’s half decent.
Not bad looking at all. I'll be checking one out when I see on in the gun case of the local dealer, but will wait a while before purchasing one. Wonder if they'll ever offer a model in Royal Blue??
3" barrel coming next month. Blue finish available by summer.
The return of the Combat Python.
I have high expectations for the model so will wait for some extensive reviews before getting one. But looks good so far.
Have to admit, it looks good. Just wish they did not recess the muzzle, that looks goofy(and is a answer to a problem that just doesn't exist IMO).
I bet the 4.25 idea, which is the same as the S&W 66, is because Canada.
I suspect that market has a very limited life expectancy, so best get in while you can.
Still, I like 3" revolvers. I look forward to seeing this one.
Just watched the vid. That 4.24" looks pretty sexy. I admit I'm intrigued. I could actually use a .357 range toy. It won't hurt if it's kinda fancy.
12K rd of 357.
12K rds of 357 blue-pill loads w/o problems would empress me.
Disagree. That’s a desirable feature. A custom touch usually. Protects the riffling at the muzzle.
Glock thought enough of it to use it on Gen 5 Glocks....
Same here. I'm waiting for someone to do a side by side comparison with the original to see if it's worth the premium over a Smith.
The originals bring five figures...
Just by not having the locking hole above the cylinder release has given it some points over S&W in my humble opinion.
That’s for sure...
Ha-Ha....you should be saying "The originals USED to bring five figures".
Just like when HK brought out their new 9MM MP5ish units, the collector value of my SP-89 has taken a hit, the new Pythons are gonna' knock a few bucks off the old Pythons except for the most anal of collectors.
I would spend fifteen hundred in a heart beat for a nice revolver...
I was a huge Python fan as a kid in the 70’s, my Dad being a Smith and Wesson guy, I however did not get to shoot one until high school via a friends father.
After reading all those glowing reviews all those years, I was SO disappointed in the double action trigger pull. It was like finding out Santa Clause did not exist all over again.
Maybe had I not been raised on my dads well worn in tuned on top of that Smith and Wesson triggers, it would have been different, but the snake infatuation died right then and there. Though I did shoot a few more over the years just to make sure it was not a one off problem.
So far reviews are saying the stacking issue is gone with the new lock work... 35 years later I’m actually cautiously excited about a new Colt Double action revolver! What a way to bring in a new decade!
