    We all have our gun shop horror stories..I watched a shop worker handling the heck out of a brand new SAA.. cocking it over and over as he talked... drove me nuts. Same thing to a new cobra target, and other Colts. Yes, some of them will be shot and it doesnít matter.. but when itís not his money - donít needlessly play with it. Price tag on the SAA is about $2.2K before tax. Strange how the shop owners themselves are much more careful with the guns, especially when that gun is not JUST a display model. Anyway...
    I have been lucky as the UPS and Usps delivers to my FFL at noon time very consistently. I just start driving that direction at lunchtime on the day the package is out for delivery. .. as it so happened on Wednesday with the new Python delivery, and I arrive usually before they have time to open the box if it delivers before I get there. Some of my guns donít matter, but others are coming pre-owned, out of production, nearly irreplaceable in some cases.. and if so , not easily or cheaply. I like my FFL because his employees are instructed not to play with somebody elseís toys. They record serial and put it in storage after check in.

    Btw.... I didnít show with a Mardi Gras band for the python pickup, but I did sport a Colt ball cap.

    Iím sure your deal will go perfect and all will be fine too, Whip.
    The anticipation is all part of the fun !

    Looks like cutter chipping when they did the counterbore. I would guess that it was cut after rifling as a time saving method. I believe the rifling at the end of the barrel should be deburred by hand to avoid this type of problem.

    Absolutely 100% wrong. Hand cutting would be well, just stupid. There is a problem with the process which inclusive of the operator, process and materials used (cutter type, speed even the lubricant). Have watched too many to count target crowns being applied to bench rest rifles and sporters tubes by Speedy Gonzalez. It is not rocket science...Ö....

    Snidely, I think you'll be fine. All of the gun shops I have dealt with treat guns as the owner's property as soon as they are purchased. The issue is how they treat guns BEFORE they are purchased. I could tell a story but I'm in a bar with friends and don't want to cry in public.

    Hey Toucan, can you measure some dimensions between your two Pythons?
    I can not tell by the pictures how much more top strap mass the new version has.
    Also curious about other dimensional contrasts, if any.

    I am glad to see folks with their new prize delivered and ready to shoot at the range !! Very Cool ! Lucky those with low serial numbers also !

    if you paid for it in full they better not let anyone handle it. That’s how mine worked. They locked it up in the safe.
    When the Sig 365XL came out, I went to a local gun store to see how I liked the grip. They didn't have one to sell, but they pulled one from the back a customer had sent there but hadn't picked up yet and let me mess with it.

    That is horrible they did that, now you have to send it back, god knows how long that will take. Or take it to someone and have it fixed at your expense.

    The place I bought from doesn’t work that way. Especially since I paid in full. Not anyone’s gun to play with at that point. That is their words not mine. I fully 100% agree with it. If the gun isn’t spoken for, or paid on, then I believe it should be fine to handle it.

    Not sure what will come of it. Colt is aware and is passing my info on to customer service. We’ll see. I’m sure there are 100’s other trying to do the same.
