    I think that’s just the shadow in the thumbnail. If you click on the pic it’ll blow up and you can see it better.

    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.

The laminate stocks are far more comfortable in my hand than the stocks on older Pythons even though they essentially look the same...just more comfortable. The muzzle crown is fine compared to some shown here. It has a solid lockup just like older Colts. The finish is far and away better than the new King Cobra which was nice enough...my photos don't come close to doing it justice. This is just a minor step below the Ultimate finish older Colts have received...this will probably be a minor optional upgrade for the new Python as it's almost there now. Older stainless Colts have the rounded lower portion of the barrel below the muzzle vapor blasted...this Python has it polished like the rest of the gun.

    Two minor issues...it could have been cleaned better after being test fired but that's a minor thing. The other is the extractor rod...it's perfectly straight and smooth but it feels like it's been dampened trying to quickly push it down. Maybe it's designed in that way or maybe some lube added might take care of that.

    Overall...just based on some quick handling and examination before it sits in Marylandstan's 7-day jail before bringing it home...Colt has a real winner here...a Grand Slam if it performs up to historic Python standards.









    Snidely,

    If the resistance is upon initial push of the ejector rod... try cleaning the cylinder under the ejector star... and the back of the ejector star. There is probably a film of oil there that is creating a slight suction.

Mine's 1970 so maybe things got more lax over the years.
    Seems like the newer DA Colts all have this now. My 1993 vintage Anaconda has this exact same counterbore (although done properly). It's probably a good idea to keep the crown protected if they can get it right!

    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.

    Yeesh! And someone STILL paid $250 over retail for it.

    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 had my Python Elite 1997 and my 2020 Python with me at the range today and I was looking for the 30% more steel and found it.
    The rear sight is not cut as deep into the top of the frame. That is where the difference is.

    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 ??!!
