    Received my 210x Python yesterday. It has some light muzzle crown issues as previously noted. It also is binding up in single action with my snap caps. I haven’t fired it yet. The mechanism locks up but a light turn of the cylinder by hand gets things moving again. Ideas? One, sometimes two of the 6 affected.

    Supposed to pick up my new 2020 Python tomorrow from my dealer. All these issues I'm hearing about have me worried. I got a great deal on it (below MSRP) and it's a low serial number (PY00108X) so hoping I dont have to send it back to Colt.

    It's hit and miss.

    Just like a car, sometimes the first model year has a few glitches.

    What does a great deal look like? How did you manage that from your dealer? Is your dealer a gun store?

    My dealer is a gun store and I have been good friends with the owner for a long time. I paid under $1400 including tax.

    Hopefully, these issues can be taken care of. Most of us Colt guys are all excited about the return of the Python.

    Please keep us advised as to how Colt handles your issues.
    I'm a S&W guy and I'm excited about the return of the Python!

    Thought I would post a link to Hickock45's video on the new Python. He seemed to have issues with the hand and cylinder rotation. Otherwise, the gun looks promising.

    Hoping the new Python gets it's problems worked out quickly and is a commercial success for Colt.

    I've been following the stories about the new Python as best I can.
    Several testers, who published to youtube, had problems with the cylinder locking up. Hickock45 is one example
    None that I read had any accuracy issues, but none of them did demanding accuracy tests.
    Others had nothing but for praise for it. No issues with cylinder locking up. No accuracy issues, no fit and finish issues. Ken Hackathorn is an example of this.

    It seems that the number of good reports is beginning to outweigh the reports of trouble. As someone on this forum said, Colt is no doubt addressing the issue. I do think it is unfortunate that Colt didn't sort all this out first.
    The $1400 MSRP is a little high for me for what I'll consider a "second tier" gun. That is, for CCW I'll make other choices first. It, like the ones I have now, will take turns with other .357 Magnum revolvers I like, such as my S&W 686.
    I'll wait a bit in hopes the price will come down. By then I will have had my own day at the range with one and know better what I think of it.
    I have blue and stainless "legacy" Pythons, 4" and 6". I got a couple of them dirt-cheap because the finish is worn, though the lockup and accuracy are sterling. Or gold. They are so stupid valuable, now, I don't really want to carry them any more. I've dragged the 4" blue around a lot, for a long time. Bought it for $350. Or $300, I don't remember.

    I will happily buy one when the issues are resolved, and, as another contributor here said, I'd like 2. A 4" for carry and a 6" for fun at the range and field carry. With my luck I'll spring for them and THEN Colt will announce they're coming out in blue.

    Those "legacy" Pythons. Someone just forwarded me an ad on Gunbroker for a 3.5" Combat (or something like that) Python, asking $19,000. In England. I'd like to see someone in the U.S. buy it just to get it out of England. Maybe if we get 40 people to each contribute $500 we can buy it for a gun trust . . ..
    Any way, if someone wants to offer ME something even CLOSE to that for mine, SOLD! Might keep the $300 one. Ugly, but I love it.

    And to think, I never wanted even one.
