No...far too different. Outside of stocks and stock locating pins they're entirely different revolvers outside of the visual styling. One part that may...and I repeat...may...interchange is the barrel...it might interchange with the late Python barrels with one-pin front sight blades...but I don't know whether the barrel threading is the same as those.
Here's where I probably get banned from Colt Forum for traitorous heresy.
Obviously the market feels the Python is everything it's cracked up to be.
I've been a somewhat skeptical Python owner since day one A decent used 1978 vintage 6-inch blued Python came to roost here in about 2006...
So, the 'Yankee Marshall' of YouTube announced today that Colt dealers already have the new Python but the release for sale is set for January 2020.
I post it in the lounge because until this fyi is verified,its not Python category worthy.
I just got home a little while ago. I took my New, Python 2020 to the range. I left the Python I bought 31 years ago at home. I felt like I was being unfaithful!
Today I was rewarded with some mighty fine shooting. The Python 2020 is a very fine handgun that still manages to outclass the...
I replaced the front sight by a FO sight from Brownell's
I tried the gun for the first time this afternoon.
Shooting too high.
I stopped because I did not know how far I could go up with the rear sigh to correct.
And I will try it with the original sights.
Any thoughts please ...
I picked up a nice 1961 vintage 4” blued python that has nice gen2 stocks on it. At what year did they switch from full checkered gen 1 stocks to the Gen 2? Wondering if grips are original to the gun. Serial is 18256 so made later in 1961
