Well this guy is a real hater. Going to put this "person" on ignore. Lot of ignorance in his posts.Another new Colt Python problem. This one could cause a catastrophic failure of the metal in a high stress area behind the head of the bullet (cartridge) exploding.
Here's an idea...shoot a few hundred high power magnum loads and see if the crack gets worse! Don't worry about injury. Colt can pay for any damage or injury you might experience. Heck, the new Pythons are better in all ways than the old ones.
Or you can send it back to Colt, like many other new Pythons, and wait for them to check it out and return it to you.
Or, you can get a refund for a damaged product and spend a few hundred more and get an old Python and not worry about MIM parts.
Or, sell it or return it and buy a (gasp!) S&W, whatever model, and not deal with Colts anymore.
Good luck deciding which course of action. Love my old Pythons!
