this was one thing I spent several minutes on.... I see no pin. One reason I thought hoax for sure at first until I looked at rest of it, case, and papers. I just noticed after my postWhat is holding the front site on?
Screwed in from above ? That would explain it.I’d guess that the front site is held on by an Allen screw on the front. If it’s in the $1500 price range and not some limited run that you can’t get your hands on than I’ll definitely be a buyer.
Would love to see a short barrel version.
Probably an Allen screw from the front like on the new Cobra and King Cobra.Screwed in from above ? That would explain it.
Here’s to hoping that the sight is bored and there is a countersunk screw that comes in from the top front instead of the muzzle end. In a way I guess I’m glad that they don’t have the traditional pins on the rib side holding them on. It kind of distinguishes from the first gen with the two pins, and the newer one pin models.Probably an Allen screw from the front like on the new Cobra and King Cobra.Screwed in from above ? That would explain it.
There's something else I noticed in the image that azshot posted. That manual has a photograph on the cover. The only other Colt manuals that I've seen that on are the new Cobra and KC.
I don't see the original Pythons plummeting in value. They will remain the original Python with all the mystique (Royal blue finish. hand fitted, etc.) that goes with it.At first I thought the picture was a hoax, like an air soft dressed up. If that is the New Python, and it looks the part, it is a new action from the old python. That was a given tho. Also it’s not an old python dressed up because notice the side plate screw, same as the new KC’s. I can’t enlarge the picture to get better looks, but IF it’s real, those with stainless pythons are going to be hurting. It’s surprising how close that gun looks. Of course action will not be hand fitted like old, but 90% of python buyers only care about looks. Actually 75% of python buyers are only “keeping up with the Jones”. If that’s it, stainless pythons will nose dive to no more than 50% more than this one costs. Short barrels will stay strong until they introduce those. Then grown men will feel like crying that sank near 10k or more in them. This is all IF that’s the New Python. It almost looks too close to be true. I’m not buying it just yet (the picture ). Also I’ve looked at the king cobra target compared to this. This one is definitely a larger frame.
