    I don't necessarily disagree, but if everyone did that, we'd still be debating those newfangled atlatls. The people who cough up their cash to roll the dice on a new model anything should be lauded.

    No matter how well a company tests its products...whether it be a firearm, automobile or whatever...until it gets into the hands of consumers who will use, misuse and abuse the product in any number of scenarios and circumstances...will the flaws become fully known. A new car only has a mile or two showing on the odometer on the dealer's lot. A handgun gets only a couple of proof rounds run through it...if it targets and functions it ships. Then the warranty kicks in for any other issues...just like a car...the warranty kicks in and the dealer is supposed to fix it.

    When you consider how wacko - anti gun / "The government needs to support all in the state from cradle to grave", by unfair taxes and regulations in Connecticut / how basically Colt can't hardly even fire an employee........................ etc.

    I am amazed that Colt has even been able to get these pythons out the door with just a few problems. I think Colt has all the best intentions in the world but also have to many in their workforce that just show up to punch the time clock and get through the day.

    I've no idea what, if any, problems may have had with the original Python when it was first released...but we have to keep in mind there were only two who had the knowledge and experience allowed to make the Python at that time. They were expected to produce a superior product and everyone knew whose fault it was if something wasn't done correctly. The new Python is designed for minimal hand fitting and while Colt might have their better techs assembling them (maybe)...I doubt if those techs today have the knowledge and experience of Al deJohn and the old masters putting the Python together originally. It could be as scstrain says...too many just showing up to punch their timecards. Maybe it's someone trying too hard to get it right and goes too far in his techniques that require more knowledge and experience than he possesses.

    I would hope the workforce knows how special the Python is and has always been and really wants to put out a quality product. Maybe it's only a very limited number of people who don't care enough and just want to get a paycheck and take little pride in their work.

    I ordered a 4.25 a week ago and I'm anxious to get it. I'll bet that the folks that want to wait a year or two until they get the kinks out are not 83 years old. Sometimes you just have to roll the dice. Just sayin

    Yea nobody would ever want that 1st generation Porsche 356, Corvette Stingray, or that 1st Shelby Cobra... They might need service work at some point!

    you NEVER want the 1st model of anything. Buying that 1st Superman, Batman, Silver Silver, Spider-Man comic book would be a waste... those characters might suck!

    Same thing goes for any collectible. Those rookie cards from unproven players should always be traded for a proven veteran player. Babe Ruth rookie card? I’ll pass... he may end up average.

    That being said... I don’t think I’ll be 1st in line to fly on a new Boeing jet lol
