Yes, they are. Love mine.
.44 mag > .357 mag any day and twice on Sunday.
New thread topic: "Am I the only one who takes my new guns out of the case as soon as I get to my car in the store parking lot just to look at 'em again?"
If you don't mind me asking, what camera was used for these pictures. The lighting has a 90's soap opera vibe to them.
The "lock work" on the new Python's are different from the original Pythons. Maybe you know this.
iPhone, I’ve never been good at gun pictures.
now offered at "buy now" for $1499 with no
credit card fee. So shipping and tax need to
be factored but a far cry from some of the
earliest bidding which still continues.
I get many guns through Bud's in Sevierville, TN. My wife and I make an afternoon of picking them up. Pick up the gun(s), have some lunch and then my wife shops at a needle work store. I have to keep her happy. While she is shopping, I'm fondling the new firearm purchase in the car while listening to tunes on the car radio paired with an iPod.
I do not have experience with the previous production runs of Pythons or Anacondas, but I've purchased the new production runs of both and am happy with them. They are the first (Python) and second (Anaconda) Colt revolvers that I have ever purchased.
Along with my similar S&W revolvers, the Python and Anaconda are welcome additions to my collection.
Seriously? It's barely noticeable. If that's your only criticism, one might posit that you're picking at nits...
Oh, it’s not, I owned one when they first came out and it was junk. Back when the crowns were dinged from the factory and the rear sights were loose. My cylinder latch also bound. Colt had poor customer service and did not fix several of the issues. Never again.
But the barcode helps them quickly process your gun for the required repairs.
the $$$$ difference is like WOW, when it comes to 1980's revolvers.
I don't like the Anaconda, and I don't like the Redhawk, I can only love one, the old 29.
I have 2 of the new Pythons ones, had one from the first issue which made me enough money to
get a couple of Garands, best I remember. Had a misunderstanding on here back when they first
came out, I already had an order in for one back then. Hadn't thought of that in a while.
I was critical of the new Python about something and someone threw a flashbang in here.
Haven't got around to shooting these 2 YET. I am too old for keeping them in hopes they
will increase in value.
I still like the original with the deep blue better.
A friend who was leaving gave me a Colt Detective Special and in rear areas I wore that under my fatigue jacket, so as not to be walking around stark nekkid.
I was in the division Tactical Operations Center and Viet Namese Air Force pilot was there. He was wearing a cowboy style buscadero belt, cartridge loops and all. He was carrying a 2 ½” barrel Python. I complemented him on it and he complained he couldn’t get ammunition for it – his belt loops were filled with .38 Special FMJs.
“I have ammunition for that gun. Come by tomorrow and I’ll give you some.”
He came by the next day and I gave him 100 of my handloads. “Let’s go outside and shoot our guns.”
He touched off one of those reloads and a ball of fire engulfed his hand. The hammer spur hit him in the forehead and drew blood. I drew my Detective Special and fired a few .38 Specials. He looked at me.
“You want change guns?”
“Oh, I couldn’t do that – a friend gave me this gun.”
“You big man, have little gun. I little man, have big gun.”
“Well, I’d like to, but this was a gift.”
“I pilot. Maybe I get shot down. I need good gun.”
“Well, since you put it that way . . .”
I wonder if the internals on the Python are different than the king cobra? Outside of the vent rib they look the same.
Both actions feel the same to me.
