    I haven't had any trouble with mine through 300+ rounds, and hundreds of dry fire cycles, but I decided to check this after reading this suggestion. The two visible screws were good and tight, but that one hidden by the grip was a good 3...3 1/2 turns loose. I tightened it up and made a mental note to keep an eye on it. If it happens again, some blue locktite might be in the future.

    The loose sideplate screw issue (if it is an issue) is not endemic to the Python. When I first got my new Cobra, I was able to rotate them with my thumb nail. I caught this before I fired the gun, so whether or not it would have caused problems I don't know, but the gun has been trouble free since I snugged down the screws.

    It will be interesting to see what Colt says the cylinder rotation problems are being caused by.

Subsequent loads had the same issue. Even before the first cycling issue I noticed that there seemed to be a lot of rotation in the cylinder before it would Lock. Not too worried about it, already got my fill, for now, so back to Colt she goes.

    For anyone in the know, I'm just wondering, since this seems to be a systemic problem, will Colt be issuing a blanket recall? Also, is the fix in place for the 4.25" ones that are or soon to be hitting the street?

    These reports are becoming commonplace as more Pythons make their way out there. It's a shame Colt apparently does not have adequate QC processes to prevent this from happening.

    I think the trend for all manufacturers is to QC products through the customer. Looking on the bright side, at least the new Python is not exploding like the Glock 44...🤷‍♂️

    Colt master Tool Room employee that designed the Python:

    "There were never any real problems with the Python, except for a period when a few of them went out with bad springs. Colt's had been buying the springs from an outside source at that time, and we had problems ... you know, weak hits and poor ignition, especially double action. But we took care of that in short order."

    (Adalbert (Al) Gunther, referring to the first year of production of the legacy Python. How I Built the First Python, American Handgunner, Jan/Feb 1977)

    I think the ability for issues to get communicated widespread and instantly has increased so much that it makes QC seem like it’s declined more than it has. I’m not saying it hasn’t declined. But just think. How bad must a a problem be in the 1990’s, and prior, for most everyone to have heard about a problem. ..
    Of course, the flip side is that, back then, rumors turn fiction into fact. “I heard that gun explodes” don’t buy it”. May be true -may be not.

    The good news today is we can find out about every issue and form our own opinions. (Right or wrong) I can tell you that Colt flipped the switch on the new Python QC.. They’re on it and all over it now.
    The bad news is ignorance is bliss. Now every gun and/or gun brand in my safe has a video of a documented issue. I’m 50/50 on pulling the trigger or throwing it at a burglar. New Cobra is heavy. Glock .. need a full high cap mag for distance.

    Good Put! Known issue being addressed.

    All of this really makes me wish I'd hung onto my Python Elite 6" (blued). Because I doubt I'll be going anywhere near the new Snake for a while to come until all the problems get sorted out. I own more Colt handguns than any other brand, from an 1847 Walker replica, through numerous 2nd and 3rd gen percussion revolvers, a 1st Gen SAA, and three Gold Cups -- but I find it inexcusable that this legendary and expensive flagship model was released for sale without this major cycling problem being discovered. You all are showing remarkable patience, in my opinion.

    These few on gunbroker, a completed auction and a local dealer sell are all the 4” new pythons I’ve seen. If this is the 4” rollout, let’s hope it picks up some steam with production numbers.
