    I do hope, in addition to other issues with my revolver, that is is repaired promptly. Thank you.
    Mine is supposed to be too. I contacted Colt today and they’re send the RMA in email. Did they send it in mail to you or email?

    I know what CNC is. I doubt anyone similar to your "Yahoos" were running CNC for the Colt Pythons.

    edited to add: I agree that your theory is possible, as anyone can screw up any type of equipment, I just think it's highly unlikely that in a project with this high of visibility that Colt would hand over CNC to bunch of ignorant "yahoos".
    I can think of another manufacturer that thinks it's acceptable for the recoil sheild to look like it's been hacked at with a chisel and hammer by a 5 year old.

    Pythons from 000001 to 000050 are first pre-production run.
    000001 to 000999 are Special Revolver Python run (Only 50 have been made so far)
    Available serial numbers for 949 Special Pythons, yes please. Can't wait to see what they come out with in the years to come.

    I can picture scoped Pythons for one thing, along with regular production runs on DLC type finishes.

    Folks, this is going to be expensive and fun.

    I agree with you that there's a quality control problem. Via the new Colt i.d., it looks like Colt is acknowledging this and that they honestly want to rectify it. To me it's crazy and baffling that these issues are appearing on a high-profile product introduction, but I think it's a sign of the times. People knock the old Pythons, but there was an effort at craftsmanship, when they didn't have access to manufacturing techniques we have today, that are sadly lacking today. I'll buy a new one, but I'll go into it with lower expectations than I had when I bought a used one on GB.

    Can you tell us about when we should expect the next batch of 6" guns will be available?
    Currently producing mostly 4.25 Pythons and 6 inch pythons will start in a few weeks.

    I think they would have to be both ignorant and unsupervised. I have a friend who owns a machining shop. He was also a cue-maker. This gave him a huge leg up on other CNC-using cue-makers, as he could afford state-of-the-art CNC machinery that a pure cue-maker couldn't justify. He took advantage of this and never let any cue out of his shop that wasn't perfect. I'm sure Colt has a lot more financial resources than my friend had, so I see no excuse for CNC issues like what we are seeing. That's why I don't believe they are CNC-related.

    I also would like to thank you for the information you are sharing with this community. You have restored my faith in Colt for now, I hope this trend continues into the future and hope that the success born from the new python brings other desirable models into Colt's future plans.

    Yahoo's don't have to be ignorant to screw things up.
    Thank you guys for bringing the word 'yahoo' back into the lexicon. I'm gonna put it right next to the word 'malarkey' which was also recently brought back from the dead.😁😁😁

    Well it appears that Colt is handling this in a proper and timely fashion... unlike the afformentioned "cold chisel" manufacturer.

    So... kudos to Colt !!!
