Just ordered a set for mine. Just out, if anyone is interested in an upgrade.
You just might be wrong.
I had a set of the Elliason sights, replacing the stock Accro rear sight, my on my old Python PPC gun
People buy things for different reasons, personally I want this because the darn thing is art. So darn good looking. For me the sights detract from that. Perhaps if I chose to play a game with it I would change it, kinda doubt it, don't care much about scores anymore, I just can't move that well.
I guess the market for these is good -- Wilson's already has them back-ordered!
of 2020 Python buyers who are
willing to accept the highly
questionable rear sight and
be willing to super glue/loctite
it in place.
And it's doubly amusing that others
are now willing to shell out close to
$200 to get a decent aftermarket
set of sights.
But but but but it's a COLT
Not wrong, just disappointed. (re. factory sights being good on a $1500 target-worthy handgun)
Guilty as charged and trust me having to spend $124 to upgrade the sight on a $1,500 gun is a bit of a kick in the berries.
Again guilty as charged. I want Colts in my collection, simple as that. I would caution anyone buying one with the expectation of it being the end all be all of revolvers, you might be buying it for the wrong reasons.
Minor teething issues are to be expected with ANY brand. Colt should be rightfully proud of their new snake guns, they’re the finest production revolvers in America at the moment.
My Magnum Research BFR begs to differ. It is a single action though.
cash register. Bill Wilson in a
recent video explains the
development of the Python 2020
I would take a Freedom Arms over one every time, pony on it or not. Plus, I don't need to buy sights for a Freedom or glue them in place.
I'm sure CZ (current owner of Colt) will get it right soon. They seem to be doing things well now.
I agree about the QR code but I didn't know about problems with the rear sight. What???
I was thinking that code on the side was odd, a Sig 226 I recently acquired has that ID on the frame, but a sticker and can be (not that easily) removed...I didn't like it 'cause it's ugly and I heard it was bad Ju-Ju or sumphin'...now my Colt has one engraved on there...I thought about polishing it off, but...21st century man's problems.
Ever handled or shot a Freedom Arms revolver? Miles ahead of Colt in fit and finish.
