Years ago when I was driving Armored car in downtown L.A., I was told to buy a big shiny gun so it would be noticed. At the the time when we exited the truck we had the gun in hand until we got back in the truck. So I bought a stainless Colt Python 6" as my daily sidearm and loved that gun. Well the dumb kid I was, I traded it off for a nicely built ford 390 to put into my '67 Mustang Fastback. I have always wanted another Python until I saw the prices of the used ones, but now for $1500 I can get a new one and as soon as they get more available I am.

Beware, Youtube the Python and its problems. I've had my 6" blue since 1975. Well, I had, my daughter borrowed it and she won't give it back. She also borrowed my Gold Cup '70 series that I've had since 1976, she won't give that back either! LOL

What the hell could they do to cause it to have problems? As long as they've been making them and as simple as they are........o_O
They “simplified” the action.
So it’s more like Python 2.0, not the same gun as the originals.

My dad still has his original Colt Python he carried at LASD for years. I remember that gun going back to being a wee lad and have always LOVED it. I was surprised to see recently what they were going for on gunbroker. Spendy. Wonder if this announcement will push the used prices down.

IMHO if anything, it’ll push prices up because the new one is not the same gun...its built cheaper.

Anyone who wants a well-built Python will have to fight for an original.

Supposedly they removed 16 parts from the fire control mechanism, so it’s a Python in name only.

Good info. Do you have a schematic on what they took out? That's interesting to pull hat much hardware out.

Seems a nice condition original Python is fetching 3kish. Think my dad paid like $500 new. LOL

Guess I should have kept my Python instead of trading it for an AR a few years ago...
I mean the AR that fell out of my boat off the coast
