Sent my sick (1961) Python back to Colt, as you had suggested. I talked to 2 gunsmiths and both said because of the age, "send it to Colt." Neither of them said that they "couldn't" work on it, but they both said that they "wouldn't."

I paid under $600 for it, so I hope it won't be more than $200 to make it right.

A couple of real Pro gunsmiths.

Many 'smiths have a problem with admitting they aren't up to something, and get in over their heads.

Usually, the customer and the gun are the ones that suffer.
This is in no way limited to small-time, local gunsmiths.

I once saw a fine Colt .38 Trooper nearly ruined by an internationally known, large gunsmithing company.
They were famous for their 1911 and S&W work, were virtually every gun company in the worlds warranty repair, but knew NOTHING about Colt revolver actions.

Ego got the better of them, and it took Colt to save the Trooper.

It's hard to just say "No".

In any event, Colt will send you a estimate for the needed repairs, and they'll do it RIGHT.
