    Guys, I carried a 6” blue Python as my duty weapon from 1977-1980. It was either that or a 15 yr old Model 10. For some unknown reason or one I refuse to remember, I either sold it or traded it. What an idiot I was!!! If they release a new Python, you darn straight I’ll by one, shoot it and leave it to my heirs.

    We get to beat a dead horse again with this topic...yeah! I guess in this case it would be a dead pony!! The Python has been out for quite a few years since the originals were discontinued, it's made by Umarex and in pellet gun form. Hand fitted internals by robots, and a gorgeous dull black finish. Hopefully all the smart marketing gurus at Colt will just have Umarex make the newest version as well. I should be on their payroll for that suggestion. I mean bean counting is Colt's only business model these days. I'm sure a $1399 MSRP or something crazy will be the price point, and then a year later it will be on Cheapguns.com for half that. What a shame to use all of the old names, how ridiculous. But starting with the Cobra name of all the names they had to pick from, shows just how dumb the powers at the top really are. Meanwhile, Ruger is killing it with new revolver releases and even a new custom shop! Giving the customers precisely what they ask for. Good luck Colt's Mfg. Way too little way too late.
    I carry a gun, because a cop is too heavy!

    Welcome the new Python gentlemen! First of all the old Python is too costly to manufacture the “old” way. I have wanted to get a Python for my first .357. I was going to settle by converting a New Service in .45 LC to .357. I have a Colt Anaconda in .44 mag and like it over the 629 I had and sold. Now there is a new King Cobra, can’t we call that a 2nd Generation pistol? Sure a 1st Generation SAA or a Python is a more desirable gun to have, but why can’t there be a better made Python with the new manufacturing methods? Well I am planning now to leave the New Service alone, buy a “2nd gen” King Cobra and replace the 3” barrel with a 6” one from a “1st gen” one, and when it comes out I will buy a “2nd gen” Python. I don’t mind 2nd gen black powder pistols and 3rd gen SAAs while wouldn’t I buy a 2nd gen Python?

    I have a new Colt Night Cobra. I am very pleased with it. Very smooth, accurate and comfortable. It stands on its own. I have had a renewed interest in revolvers the last several years. I will most likely get the New Python when it comes out because I have a thing for Colts and because I can.
    Must be blue or what passes for blue now days.

    Like most things we grew up with and liked, the "new" Python will be a change from the original. Think S&W, Ruger, etc, all re-engineered to keep costs within bounds. It will probably be an excellent revolver; maybe not as "refined", but strong, accurate and no doubt well fitted. For those who want another (or just one) Python, it should be more affordable than the first generation. I won't buy one, but then, I also won't buy any other gun either. I have what I need, and what I want is merely irrelevant.

    It'll be interesting if it will be a new larger frame size, or the existing Cobra frame pimped up with a vent rib, like the old Diamondback, only in 357. That's my guess.

    Best regards,

    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    Best regards,
    It will be the new .357 King Cobra frame/action (basically an upsized new Cobra) with a vent rib barrel and adjustable rear sight, sounds like it will come with wooden grips and I guess they might do a basic trigger job on it to set it apart from the King Cobra. The only other change they might try is a full size grip frame to emulate the classic Python profile, even though I doubt it. I don't think anybody would bet too much money on it being anything else.

    And it won’t have an internal lock. That’s all I care about.
