    Wonder if he will have problems getting certain firearms to review, in the future.

    if hypothetically speaking, Colt had to stop production due to a production issue... which I highly doubt that would happen.. but hypothetically... $2K would be a bargain price. People wonít care about the issue just to acquire a python out of fear that they canít ever get one. Theyre already buying due to the python name. Majority of pythons barely get shot - if at all.. we all know this.
    thereís a good chance that Hickok45 shot his python To equal same rounds through 50 more totaled together.
    what makes good sense with purchasing new model guns Ė- does not apply here. Who cared who got the first 2000 Sig units ( sorry if I offended the Sig people.. but really, it would be a much smaller group . )
    to prove my point, itís been absolutely seen that buyers have paid couple hundred more than MSRP for a known blemished new python already. .. And sold quickly too. What Iím saying is the new python is a win/win purchase. Certainly would be absolutely wonderful to not have some issues to wade through, but i by no means am thinking I wish I hadnít gotten one.


    Maybe Iím the only one. but. ..Iím still taking that thing out of the safe and thinking that I canít believe Iím standing here holding this brand new python. Itís not pre-owned.. itís not Like new and maybe the box is real.. itís my brand new Colt python.

    Curiosity got the best of me and I took the side plate off for a peak. It is totally different than the king cobra. Cylinder advancement pawl is kept in the forward position by the main linear leaf spring. I really donít see how this could fail to engage the cylinder unless the contact points were sticking because it wasnít lubed. I have to say I was surprised at how much oil was applied to the internals... perhaps the early guns left the factory a bit on the dry side? The shape of the side plate creates a cavity that appears to house the advancement pawl. My best guess is that the guns that had a cylinder advancement issue were dry and the pawl just got hung up after recoil jolted if back a bit. Notice when Hickock45 moves the gun around a bit the cylinder then advances.

    Either way the inside of the gun is very very nice compared to the king cobra (not knocking the cobra, I love mine and carry it daily). I plan on shooting the python A LOT so I will let everyone know if I have issues.
    Thanks for the action detail pictures crookedriver!

    So....Iím a HUGE Colt fanboy, but this was predictable. To recreate the greatest double action revolver of all time and get it right first go round is pretty unreasonable. My 1970s vintage Pythons were always finicky about timing, and getting someone decent to work on them cost a kingís ransom. Iím sure theyíll get it right, but a favorite saying of mine; ď the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheeseĒ. Iíll wait until the QC issues are fixed, and we arenít seeing $1000 premiums over MSRP. Will it be in time for Xmas? Probably not. Xmas 2021 is more like it. At least we know the Python has returned.

    in the meanwhile, Iíll have my 98% 1974 S&W Model 27-2 in high polish to give me solace that I am not yet the owner of a shiny new python....no timing or QC issues on this one ever. Not a pretty or as buttery smooth as a vintage Python, but itís in solid 2nd place...

    He doesn't get his guns from the manufacturers for just that reason. He doesn't want to have any pressure to cover up issues or not give his full opinion.

    He got this one from Bud's gun shop, just like any other buyer would.

    Do you think Colt sends a note with each gun that says "Don't send any of these to Hickok45?"

    Think automobile , firearm,etc. OEM manufacturers watch mainstream magazine writers, popular TV show series hosts , and popular Internet reviewers output; and act in their own perceived self interest.

    Post #1076 by Crooked River is the most insightful on the cylinder advancement issue. There was a day when men approached mechanical issues with a logical analysis. In the day of social media, we get a thousand posts of hen’s clucking.
