    From the top. Anaconda, Python and Diamondback. One day I will have all of them. None are safe queens either. I just got the Anaconda and I have not shot it yet but I will, probably tomorrow.

    Without a doubt that Python is my favorite gun. It is superior to the others. They are fine revolvers but just don't compare to the Python. It is the one that sleeps in my nightstand. All the others stay in the safe. I really want to get them all one day. Do I need them? No. But damn I want them all. Just want to lay them all out and admire.:)

    I am blessed to own some really nice revolvers. A 2.5 inch Diamondback is my daily carry. On occasion the 4 inch Python is on my belt. Even the old beater Cobra has a sweet trigger.

    Are they superior to old Smiths...probably not. But they sure are sweet shooting guns.

    The Anaconda is a .44 mag. Sweet gun can't wait to shoot it tomorrow. The only problem I have with it right now is that the finish seems to have a lot of swirls in it. You can see them in the pic. I have never had a stainless gun before so I really don't no how to get them out. I tried to wipe them down but it didn't help.

    Missed reading the last part of your comment eazy. Get some Mother's Mag Cleaner and "gently" try to rub out those swirls, don't use a Dremel tool!!!!!! Just a soft rag to remove the swirls, its worked on scratches on my 629, its not a mirror finish, but looks nice.:cool:

    Hey guys...I mix cocktails of Colt Blue Kool-Aid and Tito's Handmade Vodka...so don't call me a pagan (or is that heathen?) because I acknowledge that S&W made some great revolvers.

    Somebody polished it up which more than likely caused the swirls.

    I guess you know that the stocks/grips on the Python and Diamondback are not factory original. Great guns however. I put grips like that on my Python... heck, it might be the same gun..... as I sold it a number of years ago with those grips.

    Old colts (1960's) are pieces of art.

    Lately not so much

    My 6" Anaconda in 44 mag. is a sweet gun and I wish I'd had the good sense when I bought it to get a 45 Colt version as well. :banghead:

    One of the first revolvers I ever had the chance to shoot was an ex-girlfriends grandmothers "purse gun". It wasnt until years later I realised that it was a Colt Diamondback very much like the one you have pictured. You have a very attractive collection.

    Snake-bit

    They say that somebody is snake-bit if they act a bit weird as if poisoned. Yes, I guess that a Colt fan might be that way, until they come to their senses and try a Smith & Wesson Model 27.

    That said to stir stuff up here. :evil: I have shot the Python way back when. By chance and circumstance I got a Model 27. I think that both have silky smooth actions that make these guns the envy of all, but the Smith has that point of just about to shoot that you can feel and use to shoot as if it was a single action. Colt, as I recall, did not have that.

    Still, I would not turn down a Python, and those guns pictured are some pretty nice pieces. Thumbs up. :D

    The Doc is out now. :cool:
