    I wonder who actually maufactures the pieces and parts used in the new Python. Colt, or a subcontractor, may do the final assembly, but I seriously doubt Colt manufactures the components.

    Probably because the components for the Cobra and Kind Cobra are manufactured by suppliers, and then Colt employees assemble them. The new Python is designed to eliminate the hand fitting that went into the originals, so most likely, the Python is utilizing the same manufacturing processes as the Cobra and KC.

    The Barcode is likely for warehouse records purposes. Lets them keep track of each gun and have accurate numbers by scanning them in when they enter storage and scanning them out when they are loaded onto a truck. Chiappa does something similar.

    This does make perfect sense in today's times. How things have changed.

    You know it, Hoppy ! And I’m thankful for a Python that is at least somewhat in the realm of an affordable shooter.

    That is true. But they could very well have placed them at the bottom of the grip frame. No need to flaunt it.

    They weren't entirely wrong.

    (almost)Anyone can assemble parts that fit in. That is the beauty of the modern manufacturing techniques(if done right).

    But the "know how" to fit parts that really need fitting is, sadly, fading away. And overly expensive when available.

    I can't see why not. I'm sure the gun already has a serial number and is marked with manufacturer, model and caliber, so the bar code is redundant from a legal perspective.

    Me, too. I'm just sorry I didn't keep my 6" blue model, so I'd have one of each.

    When I graduated from High School (1975) I remember that on a normal car or truck you were very happy to get 100 - 125 thousand miles out of it. Now I do not even feel that a new car or truck is broken in until about 100 thousand or so. My last Ford truck hit 250,000 miles before it became a hunting truck. Better brakes, transmissions, suspensions, tighter engine tolerances, yes even MIM parts, etc., etc. This is a good thing on new modern vehicles, why not on the new modern Python?

    Stopped by my LGS who is a Colt dealer. The 2 they got in were sold already but put a deposit on one that should be here in a couple of weeks. He said when it comes in if I don't want it no problem.....he wouldn't have a problem selling it. Don't mind the wait, plus I get to check it out first.

    Selling at MSRP....$1499
