    these are very hard times in the gun industry. I know of a few gun shops back home that were betting on an HRC win in 2016 with panic buying expected to ensue for AR15s so they bought every AR they could get their hands on. Those guns are still sitting unboxed in inventory, stacked floor to ceiling. So something new is needed and unless Colt has a new plastic, striker-fired, wonder 9 up its sleeve (owing to the current market shortage of such guns ), then a new Python is just what it needs.

    This is the first I've heard of it, and I hope its true.

    This isn't 1955, and they aren't building the Space Shuttle. With CNC machinery they can produce parts that don't require old men in green eye shades and sleeve garters to make them fit.

    If they do re-engineer the action I hope they at least make it look like a proper Python on the outside.

    I would like to toss out there that if anybody is fixed on a revolver made in the old timey way, there is always the Manurhin 73 to be had.

    I think I could like a New Colt Python with a 2.5 to 4 inch barrel, good sights, nice walnut and in 357 Magnium. If they give it a little attention to accuracy all the better. It will be modern, sure, and likely stainless steel but it does not sound too bad at all given what is available in the new current revolver market. Yup I think I would even buy one, or two. Make it a 2.5 inch barrel Python without a lock, made in USA, great trigger, walnut with nice cut checkering, and brushed stainless steel.

    I wonder whether this forum would have to create a Python 2.0 subcategory if the thing debuts ?

    I'm sure there will be no shortage of opinions if and when a new Python gets released. Maybe a new sub-forum would appropriate...a Python 2.0 sub-forum and a Python Classic (or Real Python) category.

    Even if it's full of MIM parts I'll probably at least entertain having one, especially a 6" gun. Probably high polish stainless unless they figure out how to duplicate that beautiful bluing from the old days vs. the blackish cold blue I see now.

    It can go under regular 'Colt Revolvers' forum.
    No justification for further recognition.

    One problem is there is almost no one that knows how to work on the older Colt double action lockwork. I wonder if they will use the old design or if it will just look like a Python from the outside. I have matching Officer's Model Match revolvers in .38 and .22 and fell very lucky to have them. I remember when Pythons were about $800.00 and they were way out of my price range!
