    Right now there is no new Python and no one knows the cost. Guesswork and making rumors don't help new shooters either.
    Well it is a new action nothing related to the new Cobra. Will be SS not blue. Lock work is very fast like the old Python and very very smooth, pricing is still being developed as are production component suppliers. Cannot comment much more than that at this point. You will just have to remember this post and when more detail is released 😊. What is the big advantage in this version is it takes advantage of over 50 years of advancements in engineering capability and the manufacturing equipment to take advantage of it.

    A few things to clear up. There will be a new Python. NO it will not have the same action. It will not affect the classic Python prices in lowering their value. It will be no different in name since there never were for the older models being discontinued and re-introduced in the past with such guns as the Cobras and the Detective models with shrouds or with out, frame size or material as in alloy or steal. The action can't be the same since Colt is trying to eliminate the time spent in fitting parts by gun smiths they want regular people to sit on an assembly line and drop the parts in. They are most likely be in stainless in matt finish or polished. There will be variations I'm sure as they did with the Cobra and now King Cobra. They are trying to make it more durable than the last production so it will require less maintenance to the action work due to timing problems from heavy use. They are not going to call it point 2 O or what ever other name. They never did that with the past guns they brought back such as the SAA 1st, 2nd, 3rd or the Detective, Cobra and police positive. As far as price range? I am going to gamble and say its going to be in the $1000 range and there is a limited edition that is going to have wood grips so that one may be a slight higher. Collectors in Colts remember when Colt made the first edition run of 1000 guns they made with the Delta Elite and other models they introduced in the 90's and such. I'm sure that is in the works.

    OK, this sounds like a sure thing then. When will this stainless, around $1,000 Python be available?

    Now this is where Loren Seekamp's genius comes into play - or could. Dan Wessons are certainly no slouch in the accuracy department. And their finish was good varying to excellent, but some were super nice. The genius? There is exactly one (1) part in a Dan Wesson action that needs fitting: the hand. Everything else drops in.

    Good grief! What if it ends up being a re-branded CZ-Dan Wesson???

    OK, just kidding there...

    I really hope it at least is in the spirit and appearance of the Python. The new King Cobra are not as good looking as the older Colts. The straight area on the frame above the trigger, and the flat trigger guard doesn’t look especially appealing to me. The slightly ‘scalloped’ look of the old Colts look a lot better. And the smooth finish of the older guns are also more attractive than the new pebbly finish.
    But a new generation King Cobra with adjustable sights and 6, 4 and 2,5” barrels to choose from would be enough for me to rejoice. It’s almost impossible to get service done to a Colt revolver here in Europe, and buying a used Python (or any older DA Colt) is a gamble.

    According to this, they're making the forging dies for the frames now.

    Don't get stuck on the guesstimate of the $1100 price range that is only a guess based off what the King Cobra & Cobra that was introduced. That number never came from Colt or any member there.
