I will buy one to shoot if pricing is reasonable as mrsp or less. Should be more durable than original. Old ones are bad about going out of time if shot a lot .
I definitely want the 4.25” version to go with my 4” early ‘70’s Python. The new one will be a shooter, but like most everyone else, I will wait for the price fever to wane.
My money tree died some time ago!
One more reason to delay will be to monitor any issues that buyers report on this and other forums. I have now seen two apparently different people report similar problems with cylinder lockup and loose rear sights. The reports came from two different forums but I can’t swear that they are different buyers.
However, it will bear monitoring what issues buyers encounter and how Colts responds to the problems.

"What does this button do..."
Buying a 4 1/4 as a shooter and retire my 4” bright stainless FloridaHighway Patrol to an occasional shooter.
To me it's simple:
- Legacy Pythons are for collectors or shooters
- New Pythons are for shooters
I guess it's cheap enough to buy for speculation, like a 1 OZ gold coin. But your money would be better invested in stocks. I mean seriously, not many (1 out of a million?) buy a new car and park it in their garage so it will remain "an untouched collectible".
Ya need to fix your state's rules, not a manufacturer that cannot keep up with 50 different states.
