    Good work Colt

  2. Minkai on January 29, 2023 at 1:37 am

    Ship them to Italy soon!!!! I’ll get two of them…

  3. Texas Bass Freak on January 29, 2023 at 1:38 am

    Can we expect to see the Police Positive chambered in .38 SPL +P sometime in 2020??!!

  4. Shinli Chi on January 29, 2023 at 1:38 am

    Can it take speed clips?

  5. ARMORER1911 on January 29, 2023 at 1:39 am

    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……

  8. quinnjim on January 29, 2023 at 1:43 am

    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.

  9. MM53 on January 29, 2023 at 1:44 am

    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.

  10. gnpahdc on January 29, 2023 at 1:45 am

    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.

  11. rod van-zeller on January 29, 2023 at 1:46 am

    Looks like the shooter short stroke the trigger at 1:43 . Trigger reset is different from s/w

  12. Brent Chambers on January 29, 2023 at 1:47 am

    Well done Colt.

  13. Eddy on January 29, 2023 at 1:48 am

    I seen that lock up too!!

  14. W203Toronto on January 29, 2023 at 1:53 am

    Thanks, Justin!

  15. The Nugget on January 29, 2023 at 1:53 am

    Leave it to colt to mess up what should be an amazing gun…

  16. Craig Clarke on January 29, 2023 at 1:54 am

    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 …….

  17. Brian B on January 29, 2023 at 1:55 am

    I want one where the hell can I get it?

  18. Bradley Slackenfelch on January 29, 2023 at 1:55 am

    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.

  19. Roadrunner Garage on January 29, 2023 at 1:55 am

    Too bad they are being over priced everywhere. Msrp 1499. Actual price 1799.

  20. Citizen Number One on January 29, 2023 at 1:56 am

    1:43 cylinder fails to rotate.

  21. Simo Matero on January 29, 2023 at 1:57 am

    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?

  22. Stars N’ Stripes Forever on January 29, 2023 at 1:59 am

    1:43 failure

  23. mrunderhood on January 29, 2023 at 2:02 am

    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.

  24. 11B Retired on January 29, 2023 at 2:04 am

    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.

  25. gimlagorn on January 29, 2023 at 2:05 am

    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.

  26. organic material science corp Polymer Science on January 29, 2023 at 2:05 am

    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.

  27. M. Loughlin on January 29, 2023 at 2:06 am

    It’s a big 2000 dollar, stinky, steamy pile of SHIT.

    Do NOT buy this clunker.

  28. PatienceZero on January 29, 2023 at 2:07 am

    You fools have no idea what you are doing! How could you screw up the launch of this icon so badly?

  29. ghosticesniper on January 29, 2023 at 2:08 am

    Get more of these in stock soon. I’ll make this my first revolver

  30. Pinslayer 45 on January 29, 2023 at 2:11 am

    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

  31. John Grytbakk on January 29, 2023 at 2:13 am

    Good job, Colt.

  32. Campo Ayala on January 29, 2023 at 2:20 am

    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!

  33. SwampHick on January 29, 2023 at 2:22 am

    I hear a LOT of quality complaints What is happening with the quality control of this iconic company

  34. Sonny Gunz on January 29, 2023 at 2:22 am

    I need a couple!

  35. Matthew Brinkley on January 29, 2023 at 2:23 am

    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.

  36. ROTHGAR The Viking on January 29, 2023 at 2:23 am

    Please make a blued Python.

  37. Alex Jaca on January 29, 2023 at 2:24 am

    Will definitely be purchasing one

  38. jagervw on January 29, 2023 at 2:25 am

    Good job, Colt.

  39. Up Past Dawn on January 29, 2023 at 2:27 am

    Look, ma, no hideous internal lock hole near the cylinder release latch!

  40. Michael Rosenfeld on January 29, 2023 at 2:27 am

    First ones showing up, quality control and function problems. Sad

  41. Cole Oshtamebaghe on January 29, 2023 at 2:28 am

    For $1,500 it should look perfect and work perfectly. No excuses.

  42. Jeff Moore on January 29, 2023 at 2:28 am

    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.

  43. KEVLAR1911A1 G21 on January 29, 2023 at 2:31 am

    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.

  44. Rifleman Reviews on January 29, 2023 at 2:32 am

    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.
