I recently purchased my first Python. It is a 6 in. blued gun made in 1976. It shoots great and is extremely accurate. I did notice one thing that has me concerned. When I close the cylinder I must rotate the cylinder until it catches. After it catches,at times with pressure the cylinder can rotate toward the left and then be solid. Only the smallest rotation can be noticed after the hammer is cocked and the trigger is released. Is this a problem?

Thanks!

These are the classic symptoms of the gun being "out of time" and an inevitability with a mechanical device like a revolver. Have a gunsmith look at the piece; it's a common problem that gunsmiths deal with, or you can return it to Colt for service (more expensive and time consuming but probably the best choice, especially for a Python.
