    Not at all. You may be able to tell with a real close look at a pic somewhere, but the the lead in notches are pretty much covering the whole area in between the chamber notches, so I have not been hesitant about testing mine SA and DA in light of the video malfunctions on the internet. The bolt on mine drops pretty quickly , riding the notch most of the way, but I’m not noticing a turn line in it as yet.

    Btw, I used a digital Lyman and my trigger pull is a consistent 4 lb 7 oz in SA. Didn’t measure DA.
    I thought it was lighter than that . It breaks clean so I was thinking lighter than that, I’ve seen someone post a less than 3 lb trigger somewhere on the forum.
    I’m gonna probably send my back soon or eventually, (haven’t decided yet) to get the muzzle recrowned . I haven’t asked Colt what the trigger pull SA supposed to be.

    I told him as a new Python owner I am wondering if the gun is safe to shoot or should I be sending it back for inspection. He assured me the gun was safe and that it will function.
    I'd sure like to know what information the Colt customer service rep is relying upon for that statement. That seems like an awfully risky thing to tell a customer when other guns are malfunctioning.

    But didn't they have to think that when they released it to the dealer? I understand early production issues, but these are firearms, not watches.

    Here's a Python for sale advertised with factory blemishes - two dings to the rib and a scratch next to the cylinder release.

    Sure, when they released them to the dealers. But now that problems with the action are being documented, and the service rep is aware of it, I think it's risky to say, "Your gun is safe and it will function."

    Edit: runscott, thanks for clarifying a few posts down. I totally misunderstood. Your point is very well-made.

    In fairness this auction has been active for several days before muzzle issues started to surface. Kudos to the seller for disclosing these issues up front. Having the gall to ask $350 over retail even with the disclosed flaws -- that I don't get at all though....

    I did call Colt Customer service. They are very aware of the Hickock45 video. However, they also claimed they have not received any calls related to this cylinder advancement issue. The only calls they are aware of are muzzle finish issues.

    Time will tell. I plan on trying to get to the range later tonight
    I have seen 3 guns that the cylinder stopped rotating, the only thing I can figure is that the hand is not sliding all the way back down and engaging on the next cylinder tooth. Why that could happen I dont know, trigger not returning 100 percent?

    I'm in complete agreement. My point is that they still seem to not get the importance of the mechanical issues.

    I don't have a new python so I'm not sure what puts forward tension on the hand as it travels upward to rotate the cylinder. On the new King Cobra, the spring that puts this tension on the hand is clearly visible when you take off the side plate.

    It's easy to see that that it is in place and working properly. Anyone pull their python apart for detailed pictures?
    This one doesn't show the spring.
