Good work Colt
Ship them to Italy soon!!!! I’ll get two of them…
Can we expect to see the Police Positive chambered in .38 SPL +P sometime in 2020??!!
Can it take speed clips?
You blew it with deletion of three cosmetic features. No back strap serration look very cheap. The recessed barrel crown creates less appealing looks of the classic Python muzzle. That older hammer checkering was much more appealing. I consider only one plus, the front sight retention on the new Python.
To delete the rebound lever and install a transfer bar further makes the gun less than a Python. If you cannot produce what was produced in the 1970s, then call it the “New Match”. But please don’t masquerade the gun as a Python. I have a Python “Elite” and that revolver lacks the original grips and barrel roll mark. However it’s more a Python that this 2020 release. I’ll have to pass and look for an unfired, mint 4” Colt Python manufactured in the 1970s and not a year later. Unfortunately it’s all about money and staying afloat. Even at under $2,000 we cannot get guns that cost 10% of the cost when the real Pythons had been manufactured in past years. The irony here is machines do all the work today, not human hands which fatigue and tire. How things have changed and not for good.
You did NOT improve it……
You blew it again, Colt. If Hickok 45 can’t get it to function, you have REAL problems on your hands. ZERO quality control from Colt on the Python. Won’t function, damaged finishes, just crap. Back to the drawing board…then again…just skip it. You guys are jokers. I’ll stick with my Smith 686 for half the price and quadruple the quality.
Is there any type of lock up for the front of the cylinder ( crane to frame ) like Ruger or S&W ? My old King Cobra dose not have this feature that’s why I asked.
Aside from 1) the disturbing apparent cylinder lock up at 1:43 (which interestingly DOES seem to replicate the problem for which some have sent theirs back in), and 2) the fact that they somehow didn’t notice that malfunction AND put it in this video, is this: 3) jump to 1:21 and notice that the attempt to write the plural of "revolver" (where simply adding an "s" is all that is needed) was failed and they wrote a singular possessive (by adding an "apostrophe s" after the word "revolver") instead. This elementary school spelling error is fascinating to consider in the current context of everything going on with this new release. That is to say, the plural of "revolver" is simply "revolvers". An example of the singular possessive is: "This revolver’s timing seems to be off." And an example of the plural possessive would be, "The new revolvers’ quality control is poor." This is a valuable teaching example, but of the wrong kind. Geeze.
Looks like the shooter short stroke the trigger at 1:43 . Trigger reset is different from s/w
Well done Colt.
I seen that lock up too!!
Leave it to colt to mess up what should be an amazing gun…
Come On Colt you have the Ferrari of Revolvers and they are having quality problems. Find the cause of what’s wrong and take care of it. I still have my 6” Python from the 70s and it’s second to None. Beautiful Action and Extremely Accurate. Fix It …….
I want one where the hell can I get it?
It’s missing something……Oh, I know! It needs an aesthetically destroying key lock right on the side to blemish the beauty and completely destroy the retro, classic ambiance.
Too bad they are being over priced everywhere. Msrp 1499. Actual price 1799.
1:43 cylinder fails to rotate.
Is the lock-up of the cylinder similar to the old one in that regard that it doesn’t have any movement when the trigger is pressed all the way? In the old Python’s mechanism this design wasn’t good regarding durability, but have you found a way to design the new one so that the cylinder stays rigidly in place at the moment when the gun fires?
I never owed a Python that exhibited any weekness in the frame. Is this a fix for a none existent problem? I own three now along with Troopers and New Service revolvers. All are good quality shooters. I do like the Troopers action and the case harded hammers on the Trooper. I would love to have either in .45 colt.
Sorry Colt but you turned into Fudds and caved-in the anti-gun activists by announcing you will not make AR-15s to the public anymore. BCM got my attention and my dollars.
1:43 you can see the cylender lock up and the hammer falls on an already fired cartridge. Cant believe it took ‘years of redesign’ to ruin an iconic firearm.
This Company is ass backwards. As rich as the history is for Colt why haven’t they created any new and innovative products in years.
It’s a big 2000 dollar, stinky, steamy pile of SHIT.
Do NOT buy this clunker.
You fools have no idea what you are doing! How could you screw up the launch of this icon so badly?
Get more of these in stock soon. I’ll make this my first revolver
1500 dollars and they can’t seem to make them reliable………….Ruger will be getting any revolver money I might have to spend. I do like the looks of Ruger’s new custom shop GP 100 and they ALL seem to run just fine
Good job, Colt.
Quality control issues are a are a rumor. Colt has already addressed this and they have had only TWO come back to them out of the thousands that have shipped out. Don’t let the haters fool you. I own a new one. Fit and finish is perfect. Absolutely ZERO failures and I’ve put a couple hundred rounds of full .357 through it. And if I ever did have a problem Colt would fix it immediately. Haters on this thread either can’t find it or can’t afford it!
I hear a LOT of quality complaints What is happening with the quality control of this iconic company
I need a couple!
I understand that when a new gun is introduced you’re bound to have some lemons leave the factory. That being said, they couldn’t even get one to run reliably in their own promo video and then knowingly released defective firearms to their customers. What could have been Colts saving grace may have been the last nail in their coffin. It’s sad to see what’s happening to my favorite gun company.
Please make a blued Python.
Will definitely be purchasing one
Good job, Colt.
Look, ma, no hideous internal lock hole near the cylinder release latch!
First ones showing up, quality control and function problems. Sad
For $1,500 it should look perfect and work perfectly. No excuses.
Got one of those new 2022 Pythons with 4.25 inch barrel. Think they finally have all the bugs worked out of these things
Absolutely in love with it. Great shooter. Very smooth action. Really wanted the 6 inch barrel but had get what’s available. Very difficult to find because once they hit the display shelf they’re gone. Keep it up Colt and good job. It’ll be awesome to see the blues ones when they finally come out.
When are you going to fix the bugs? When are you going to answer your phone, email, ect so I can send my barely used Colt M45A1 to you for the repair of the slide that is cracked in two places, BTW it doesn’t even have 250 rounds through it. Colt I really want to be a fan I own several of your products but your once again dropping the ball and I’m not surprised at all, sad just sad.
I want an anaconda in 44 mag. Maybe you should reintroduce a 7-8 shot full size revolver. Your product is already behind the times.
