I recently purchased a 1974 colt python, blue with 4 inch barrel and in separate deal a colt python 1964 6 inch barrel and blue. These guns are unreal. when going out to shoot them I noticed the 1974 4 inch python pulled hammer and much stiffer trigger than the 6 inch which pulled and shot way way easier. any idea why they feel so much different when they are both pythons? thanks

My '74 Python had a lighter SA pull than my '94. The DA pull on the older gun was the usual stacking found on Colts, the DA on the newer gun did not stack, and was advertised as such in catalogs of that era. The '74 is a 4" nickel, serial 044xxE, the '94 is a 6" stainless, serial PY 07xx. Odd that they thought that the DA trigger pull in the newer revolver, the non-stacking, was more desireable. I don't know about the triggers on the Python Elites produced by the Custom Shop 2000-2005, the last hurrah for this great revolver.
