So how does the action work?
On youtube videos it seems that double action is short - like S&W.
What if you pull back the hammer in SA, is it more like a long action?
Does the bolt fall down immediately as soon as the trigger pull starts (again, like S&W)? This could explain the very long grooves on the cylinder, otherwise I dont know why they are so long. Is it possible to feel the difference with/without the bolt dragging on the cylinder?
Does the cylinder spin/rotate easily? This has always been the poorest part of the Python action - if you keep the cylinder out of the frame and pull the trigger, it is always great. Keep it in the frame and the action is a lot worse. Several things add up to this.

There’s one that sold on GB as blem that has a flawed muzzle. Can’t see the SN though. I starting to wonder if this is effecting a certain range or batch of barrels. I don’t know if linking to GB is allowed but if you search completed auction using blem you’ll find it.
Well. Maybe I went a little high on the estimate, but I said earlier today that it wouldn’t be hard to shed oneself of a flawed Python. Slap a price and let her ride away. That appears to be a private owner seller, not a gun shop dealer, I think. Taking PayPal for payment and no FFL icon with just 14 feedbacks. Must be what he did I think.. forego the customer service route.
That flaw is the exactly what we’ve seen in a pic today .. nick on the outer edge of the muzzle. What the hay ??!!
