I've said it plenty of times on these forums. When Python's were sitting in the displays next to S&W's people bought the S&W's. That's why there are no more Pythons. Now that they aren't made people who never had the choice think Pythons are the end all. My Python was absolute junk. It spit lead out the cylinder gap and I thought it was unsafe to shoot. I sent it back to Colt and they told me there was nothing wrong with it. It was accurate if you didn't mind getting sprayed or having people around you get sprayed. Lt. Donn...... handle a Korth. Look at the tolerances, feel the trigger, and if you have the opportunity shoot one. Compared to what people are paying for semi custom 1911's Korths are bargains. They are hand made from beginning to end by one person, and they shoot great.
