    Well, it's hard to fire a union employee and as well their labor pool is pizz poor in that area. Let's face it: people want their kids to go to college nowadays and not slave away in a factory. The brightest go to college (usually).
    The only man Wild Bill Hickok stated that he feared: James Currie 1840 - 1899. Gunman without peer.

    I beg to differ, the RICHEST go to college, the Brightest often create opportunities for themselves to advance. I' ve met plenty of college educated idiots in my time. And plenty of self made millionaires without degrees. I respect the latter, not the former.

    Colt has a case history on poor QC with the Cobra and KC. I see the trend continues. I won't buy one unless I can inspect it in person. If it doesn't meet my satisfaction it's easy to pass on it than to start sending it back to Colt.

    I’ve been reading stories about customer service turnaround times in the months and even years for Colt. These are reports from 2017 and 2018. I am praying it doesn’t take that long to get the gun back.

    Right now, I have some serious buyers remorse. I should have waited to buy this gun. Still waiting on them to send the shipping label via email.
    Make sure you take plenty of pics of your gun so you can remember what it looks like. You wont be seeing it for a while unfortunately. Colt's turn around time is horrendous. Good luck.

    You can pay somebody to work, but you can't pay them to have pride in their work.

    Seems to me that the best way to clean up these burrs would be to run a countersink on it, basically making it a reverse crown like what is commonly done on 1911s.

    I looked at all the new Pythons on Gun Broker last night that had pictures of the actual gun. Many showed the muzzle in a picture. Most showed this same shoddy workmanship. You can go and look for yourself. Very sad................. Actually, pride in workmanship left Colt decades ago.

    On a positive note. This makes the punch holes in the Rampant Colt logo seem like, "No big deal".

    Easy fix but it should have been caught before the barrels even shipped to Colt!! Unfortunate fumble by all parties on the roll out! Sad all the way around.

    From all the posts on this and other forums in the last few days it appears that nothing has changed at Colt. They are still pushing products out the door with no final inspection and very little Quality Control. Their philosophy seems to be to let the buyer deal with the "beta models" and then do a half-azz fix on the few guns that are returned. I am disappointed with this philosophy and have hopes that they will learn something from this fiasco in the future. Honestly, how can they turn out so many guns of a new model that are released from the factory with barrels that look like they belong on a Taurus?

    So I got ahold of Colt......FINALLY.....they are sending an RMA and my gun is getting taken care of. They stated it will be a fast turn around since they were just released. I told him these guns should’ve never been released looking like that...crickets. Lol
