The 3” is real. The specs, however, look like they are in error- the weight shows up as the same as the 4.25.
Well, I wonder how many Python buyers, like me, actually carry and shoot them enough to want different sight options in the first place.Surprises me that they haven't made other sights more available. The tritium and fiber optic sights that do fit seem to be pretty hard to come by, and they're the wrong height for the Python. Want to get one for my King Cobra (not seeing the brass bead very well). Would love tritium on the Python too, but those are about ⅛ inch or so low. You'd think by now they would make several options available.
I wonder how long it will be before we start seeing the production 3" Pythons hit (and leave) the shelves?
Nonsense. Given the desirability of those unique pieces, it’s quite likely that the people who commissioned those revolvers will see a fourfold return on their investment- or more.Kind of sucks to pay custom shop prices and now it will be available.
I’ve put a couple thousand rounds through two separate 4.25” Pythons without a single sight issue of any kind (or any other issue, for that matter). And I am sure Colt will sell every single 3” Python they can make.Hmm to each their own I suppose but in my opinion Colt would be better served by introducing new .22LR revolver. I simply don't see the pull of 3" revolver. If I would everyday carry I would choose something from a huge number of cheaper plastic striker fired firearms. Not $1500 revolver limited to 6 bullets. If design stays the same as 4.25" and 6" then rear sights alone would make me notwant to carry. The damn thing looks like in can disintegrate just by sitting in its own box ;P
If I were a colt dealer and knew who you were, I wouldn’t sell you one, eitherAnyone else seen these in stock anywhere possibly? Called over 50 gun stores on Colts website that show them being dealers. I’d say 8 of them aren’t in business anymore. Approximately 15 didn’t even know what I was talking about, stated that they hadn’t been a colt dealer for years, and out of the approximately 27 left, 8-10 of them didn’t even know colt made a new 3 inch python. I had one guy say “buddy them ant been made for 30 years, good luck”. I called all stores surrounding Hartford Connecticut and surrounding states besides Massachusetts. Still at a dead end. I’m needing one to review.
Precisely my sentiment as well. Very well said.GoldenWebb,
I think you tried to milk an isolated problem with your Python into as much clickbait as possible hot on the heels of the biggest new Colt product launch in a long long time and considering your most watched video is titled “MY NEW 2020 COLT PYTHON IS JUNK!!!!” I’d say that’s an accurate assessment on my part. By all means, grow your YouTube channel however you wish but the people on the forum are not fools and are passionate about Colt and Colt products so I doubt you will find many people sympathetic to you on this forum.
Sorry that you had this issue, but at least it’s an easy fix.Stuff happens...that's why there are warranties. You don't have to like it but it's the reality of things.
If I had to wait a week just to release it from the FFL, I would probably gamble on the chance Colt might get me a correct part a lot faster than the time involved in rejecting the revolver and waiting for another to become available.Just a question. Why did you accept the Revolver in that condition?
I’m very impressed that you can predict my target range for anything. Can you also let me know tomorrow’s winning lottery number? Thanks!If you're planning on cc the 3 inch with service stocks would be great. Your target rage would be 2-10 yds. and believe me you won't notice the sight radius. I have a 3 inch S&W 586 L frame that woks great for that purpose. Target shooting would of course be a different story
