Reason#999999 why I stopped buying gun rags years ago! The ex-general,or what ever the hell he was/is.CEO of Colt, mentioned a 1917 recreation of a N/S. 1917 a few years back. Colt had their chance,when they were still interested(a tad) in producing revolvers,about 20 years ago. Instead,they brought out the Anaconda for their large frame D.A. revolver,a half century after the N/S died!
Yeah,I know,a New Service would've been even higher priced than the Python,if built on that old action. My N'S's continue to climb in value,and about the only "truth" to this rumor,would be a "clone" built "offshore" to take advantage of the cheaper labor: Colt did it before with the percussion guns;might again!
