    Do a search for "Completed Auctions" and report back.

    Nobody is saying an old gen Python can be had for Model 19 money. What is being said is Pythons can be had for less money than what you are posting.

    I have more than one nice shooter Python. None of them would bring close to

    Wow Ethan. Not sure you should voice that opinion. There are 3 members that will pile on you about how you can get a Old Python at the same price and that it’s a Lot better of a gun. Best keep your Pro S&W old Pre lock view point to yourself.

    Otherwise your post will be Quoted multiple times and depictions of it will be diced up and Explained why it’s wrong.

    Have fun with that…. defending being a S&W 19 k frame advocate who wants to save A lot of money to put towards shooting.

    The cost of a 19 has nothing to do with the fact that you are overexaggerating what it costs to buy a old Python today.

    Ps- The Op member obviously has done his research Becouse a page ago…… He stated it would make more sense to get a Old S&W 19.

    Seems sensible- as the Colt- IS MORE EXPENSIVE

    Then he can spend left over Money on ammo instead of getting a old Colt Python

    Over exaggerated?

    How much can a old 19 be bought for? How much can a old Reloading press, primers, brass from the range, mold , Dies.

    Now compare to price of a old Colt.

    That’s my Point

    This thread has gone pointless. I am surprised it hasn't been locked.

    I agree- Op Member stated a S&W 19 was what he decided on.

    Lol, that's fine... let my roasting commenc! :p

    I know which one feels better in my hand, and it just so happens to be the cheaper of the two. If it were the other way around, I would still choose the S&W.

    Look at the completed auctions, under 'Advanced', there are a bunch of Pythons that sold for around $2K, and I found another one that sold for $1,600.

    Word to the wise: Repeatedly, deliberately misrepresenting other members' positions is not a "high road" approach. If you like posting here, you should cut that out posthaste.

    You could just take it as helpful advice and leave it at that. Mods here don’t give much latitude to people who debate in bad faith with other members, which is why this forum has none of the persistent ugliness and sniping of numerous others.

    You can do whatever you wish with that information.

    Look- I voiced my opinions on what I believe was Accuracy of information. Then , 3 members want to dog pile on Defending the Colts when I stated they are over priced.

    I don’t need to have you inform me, how I am on the low road Becouse I’m in disagreement with your position on the subject… with you or the three others.

    You can Say whatever you want… Yet I’m not the one dragging this thread thru the Mud and have tried to end it a few Times.

    So, Go tell it on the mountain elsewhere.
    No need For this thread to further continue. Politely let it be… as I’m trying to do.

    I get that is your opinion, the market disagrees with you.

    As has been pointed out by others, you are misrepresenting what Pythons can be had for.

    It sounds like your main objection to Colt is the direction of the cylinder release, some of us feel the same about S&W. If it was such a handicap Colts wouldn't have been the dominant law enforcement handgun from the '20s to the '60s.

    I’m good- Take care gentleman. Op member asked that thread be treated as if closed. Seems like bickering to me and finger pointing. A bit Juvenile.

    That's correct. If you prefer the pull style latch, then more power to you... I guess.

    I understand reloading ergonomics isn't always the main concern, otherwise the break open S&W Schofield would have dominated over the loading gate Colt 1873 in the old west, but history shows that wasn't the case either.

    Uh, and if you're reloading, we may question how you perform a revolver reload if this is a concern.
    You may want to rethink how you phrased this, because what's ergonomic for one person (and one person's hand shape and size) may not be the same for another person. Some of us are capable of using a Colt cylinder quite quickly and easily.

    Hey Old Dog- I see you missed me. Quoted me yet again. How many times is that now,8? Think I’ve been quoted about 12 total.

    Sorry I’m busy not explaining the Benefits of S&W 19s over Colt pythons financial decision and Reloading ammo to shoot out of my Smiths. Lots of ammo from not buying any more Colts. Learned my lesson years ago.

    Take care, Shooting a lot instead of Getting a Python Timing done at the Gunsmith , la la la la la
