    6" Colt Trooper III with light trigger and hammer springs. Pretty amazing $400 revolver. So amazingly accurate, so perfect in my hand.

    Desert Eagle chambered in .357. I was at a range one day and a complete stranger offered to let me shoot it. He had it loaded up with 6 rounds of his reloads. I fired 2 at a 25yard target and fell in love. I looked at my two buddies that were there with me, both eyeballing the gun and praying that I wouldn't empty the magazine. It was hard to hand it off but after asking its owner if it was okay I reluctantly handed it to one of them. Those were 2 of the 3 most enjoyable rounds I've ever fired. The 3rd was a .50bmg round fired from a single shot AR upper. Other than that, I really like shooting a well broken in 5" Springfield XD.

    My buddy has one and when I have the $$$, I'll be gettting one. I think I want one inexpensive gun which will be the next purchase. After that, I am thinking I may start saving. Perfect in my hand and wicked accurate.

    Your timing is off. According to some of the posters here, a correctly timed Colt will not have a drag line on the cylinder. The drag line on yours is very obvious in the photo.

    Not to get off topic BUT a drag line on a revolver's cylinder can occur by incorrectly closing the cylinder without pushing the cylinder latch backwards (on a Colt) and indexing the chamber to the barrel upon closing, thus allowing the bolt to drag against the cylinder when turning it into it's "locked" state. A revolver that has seen that many rounds, and obviously has been cleaned a great deal, can often develop a cylinder turn line while still being perfectly in time.

    To get back on topic:

    This 1940 Officers Model .38 Heavy Barrel is probably the sweetest and most accurate shooter I've had the pleasure to fire:

    A drag line is normal on a Python that has been used. It is not a sign of being out of time or incorrect use. Sure, you can baby one and index the cylinder every time you close it and prevent the line, but I don't see that as being an option for duty/carry/sporting guns, which is what Pythons used to be.

    I would guess many Pythons left the factory with drag lines. My NIB guns have them....I buy/sell my fair share of Colts and don't let the line or lack of it influence price.
