    New Colt Python....

    Well it appears the new Python has some serious problems. Hickok45 had his cylinder fail to rotate towards the end of his video and number of videos have shown that the cylinder doesn't always rotate and sometimes the hammer doesn't even come back to cock. One video even showed gun media types at the shot show shoot with the cylinder failing to rotate. Supposedly, Colt is aware of this and is working to fix the problem. For $1500 smackers they had better fix the problem. Goes to show even with CNC machining hand fitting is still needed.

    More quality control and more testing of a new product, I got a feeling it is something small and simple that they either over looked or compromised on. I’m sure it will be corrected quickly but it’s a really bad look for Colt.

    I'll stick to Glocks, Sigs, Walthers, and Berettas.

    I’d wait a year let the bugs get worked out and then buy one, if I was a Colt guy. But I’m a S&W guy when it comes to wheelguns, so most likely I never will.

    Yes, even revolvers fail. The only gun I ever sent back to the factory was a Colt revolver. Still love revolvers....especially Ruger single action revolvers.
