    I've started a few threads in the past on individual guns but not on the idea in general. Lets face it colt had a great lineup years ago and then they discontinued most of it. I'd love to see some of there revolvers reintroduced. Youd think with the popularity the j frame is enjoying they would'nt have discontinued the detective special but they did. And even the python anaconda and diamondback, all great revolvers and all where discontinued one by one. And theres many other guns im probably forgeting but these are just off the top of my head so what guns do you think should be reintroduced by colt.

    I'd love to have an Anaconda in .45 Colt -- but they'd probably want several thousand for the darn thing.

    Have you seen what a python goes for today? They are stupid for not making more.

    I suspect they discontinued most of the revolvers because the design didn't lend itself to being manufactured at a cost that would allow them to turn a profit. Maybe if they did limited runs of some of them again they could charge enough to make them profitable but as far as making money on regular production I doubt it's possible.

    A Combat Commander (steel frame), Series 70 would be great.

    It takes a serious crew of seasoned experts to hand assemble and fit all of the parts for a Python.

    Sadly (from what I understand) these crews no longer exist.

    They should just make some new quality guns for the consumer, if they do that, then we'll have even more Colt classics to talk about down the road.

    I would buy a Police Positive Special in 22, 32, and 38. I would buy a Trooper in 22 and 38 and 357 and as a 5 shot 41 Magnum and 44 Special. I own and have owned Pythons but for my use the Trooper/Lawman series would get my attention first.

    Only thing I'd be excited by is a 1908 in .380 but done in Royal Blue.

    Guns for civilians, especially DA revolvers and the 1903.

    A Python goes for what it goes for today because they're not making any more.

    I understand and sympathize with the longing for Colt revolvers, but the cold hard fact is that the revolver market has shrunk considerably from what it once was. Out of S&W, Ruger and Colt, there was more capacity than the market could bear and something had to give. Colt was by far the weakest of the three.

    A minty Python is $1,500+.

    I'm still not selling mine.
