I’m getting ready to go fire mine. I don’t have .357 with me but a couple boxes of .38 special. Gonna give it a whirl.
Just back from a fairly large LGS. I ordered the 4.25 inch Python. They told me it would be about 2 months before it arrives. Price was $1499.
They have one 6 inch Python on display and they let me handle it. The reports about the action are true, no stacking what so ever. Short and easy pull and then break.
Next, I closely inspected the muzzle and crown, flawless, not a nick to be found.
I asked if I could take pictures but they politely asked me not too.
Looking back at my experience, I should have at least captured the serial number, my bad.
Just picked mine up S/N PY0026XX. I don't see any issues with the muzzle/crown and while I haven't fired yet, everything seems to be functioning correctly. I don't feel any stacking in the trigger pull, just smooth. The only reason I got one is that a couple of dozen pages ago somebody mentioned Sportsman's Warehouse so I started checking out their web-site and I got REALLY lucky to have run into one available on the 8th, discovered that they have a store about 40 minutes from my house in Altoona, PA. I got the email this morning that it arrived. I'd like to thank whoever brought them up (sorry, I don't want to go through all the pages).

Great news you were able to acquire !
Also great for this thread you’re able to confirm the correct crown .
COLT TO THE CORE
Does anyone think the 4.25” will be more desirable then the 6”? Only because it is a somewhat odd size.
