I see it happening. If same price I think it would be a hot seller. A few years ago I had a 6” matte stainless. Wanted a 2.5” barrel for it but couldn’t find one anywhere. Would’ve sent it to Colt for the change

At first thought, it will never happen due to Colt adding the extra 1/4" onto the 4" Barrell due to international restrictions. Then I thought, my new King Cobra is a .357 with a 3" Barrel, so why not just a US release. I'm all in, I'd love to see different variations on the 2020 Python.

Colt needs to satisfy the current market for 4.25" and 6" Pythons. Once that is done and production starts to slack then maybe new options and configurations can be considered to keep buyers drooling and opening their wallets for more.

Not even in the discussion stage. Would be nice but the market is tiny. Other things in the works though. :)

I think if Colt made a special run of snubbies they would be spoken for before the trucks left the loading dock for distributors...instant collectibles whether a deserved title or not. That would at least give an idea of a potential market.

The same could be said for the new Cobra with a pre-1972 barrel profile without an ejector rod housing...a classic configuration. A special run would sell out immediately.

TALO...are you listening?

I guess I have a mean streak. I know I showed this before. Bought it in 1971 new at a wild sale for half price from Jack First when he was in Lancaster Ca for $165. Belt and holster was $65 Alphonso of Hollywood made me the rig.

You can bet TALO is already working with Colt on a 3" version once they get caught up. Just a matter of time.

I am sure it’s only a matter of time. The market is limited but there is a market. I sure like my 1984 2 1/2” blued python.

If they do eventually offer a short barreled version, I hope it comes with service stocks, rather than the target style. Add a Tyler T-Grip, or clone, and I'd be happy.
