    So let me understand this.....Colt is bad for killing the Python....Colt is bad for bringing the Python back.....

    Colt has addressed the first round of issues regarding the crown. There is much talk about the failure to revolve....how big of an issue is this....3%....30%? Too early to tell. Clearly frustrating for the customer, but has to be frustrating for Colt as well. Let the dust settle and let's see the scale of the issue and give Colt a chance to fix. Putting a Python back on the market is a positive.

    you're right.

    when I heard this 3 weeks ago I did not expect Colt to have to in them to make a really great Python anymore but I was curious and started following this. Who knew they would fu...this up royally. The cheapest sh...t grips corporate procurement managers could source, chewed up 'target' crowns and the cylinder which turns some of the time...I mean...this thing is flat on it's face. I so miss my 1960s Python now and wish I never traded it.

    They’ll get the problems straighten out and this will be forgotten by most 6 months from now. This is the reason I avoid a new release on anything. I’m looking forward to getting at least one once the bugs are worked out and the price settles down.

    If I had been able to find one in AZ for close to MSRP the answer is yes.

    Guns/Cars I typically wait until 2nd model year for manufacturers to correct issues, but would buy one now even with the risk of sending back to Colt to show customer support so they continue investment in the guns I love.

    The revolve issue is clearly an issue, but to what to extent? No evidence this is extensive issue.....no information if this occurs prior to firing or after sustained firing....and everyone seems to be echoing the same known complaints. Reading more reports of guns without an issue revolving than reports of guns having the issue....so again how substantial is the issue? If the majority of guns have the problem, clearly my position would change.

    Grips?....like the ones they have on it now rather than Pachmyr ....no complaints there. Would prefer 60s version of grips, but no biggie. Grips are easily customized.
