    2020 Colt Python

    Finally got around to shooting mine today, fortunatly mine has not had any issues so far although I only got 30 rounds through her during a break today. Pretty nice shooting revolver. Anyone planning to pick one up?

    As stated in the other thread, I bought the king cobra. I have problems with arthritis so I can’t handle heavy recoil. I shoot 38 loads in the gun and it is very accurate and easy to control. Recoil is not bad at all. Quality is outstanding. BUT! I may have to get out the credit card and get a python too. Pay it off over a few months. The older pythons are “big bucks”.

    the six inches of steel in front of the cylinder do help with the recoil, I shot 18 38's through it and the recoil is not that noticeable, it does kick more with 357 of course but it is manageable. I used to have a old python on permit back in Belgium (they never became ridiculously expensive there because of a tv show that admittingly also turned me onto them) it's pretty much the same gun but with amazingly a better trigger, very smooth with a crisp break, the double action is very nice especially and in single action it a very hot bangswitch. I just wish i hadnt sold the gunbelt and holster I had for my old one along with my old python before we moved to the USA. All in all i'm happy to have a snake gun once again without having to have shelled out big big bucks, only downside it doesnt have a nickel finish but that doesnt affect it's performance.

    Has anyone been having problem with Winchester white box 38 lately?

    It's causing the new python to lock up cases seem to either be slightly off dimensions or the cylinder of the python is a little too tight, will test the affected ammo in a S&W when i find the time.

    It didn’t seem to bother my king cobra.

    The lock up is happening with all kinds of ammo . No one brand

    I'm a revolver guy, but at my age and stage the gun buying days are in the past.
    I would really like one of the new Colts, but in order to do that I would have to sell a gun, or two, and I don't want to part with any I have.

    I have two Colt revolvers, both Police Positive Specials. A nickle plated 32-20 made in 1921, and a blue 38 Special made in 1972.
    In fact, the 38 stays in a drawer within arms reach of my recliner, ready for immediate use.

    Thanks guys, I can also confirm that I found a little time after class today to shoot the rounds that caused the lockup flawlessly through my model 60. The python is gonna go back to Colt. Really dissapointed. Thanks for the replies.
