    1st review

    In the days of S&W vs Colt revolvers I felt the Python was the hands down best revolver ever made. The Python was my first duty weapon and I carried it as long as I could until departments began mandating the 9mm. But I still qualified at the range and remember a young range master asking me "Do you need any flint with that, Grandpa?" after which I outshot every young whippersnapper at the range even with my need to reload against their 9's. This handgun goes in my coffin with me.

    You are so correct. I used to carry one as well. had 4. 2 - 6" and 2 - 4". This is the most accurate and has the smoothest action (out of the box) of any revolver made period. It's the Rolls Royce of revolvers! Too bad Colt doesn't make them any more.

    If I could have only one handgun this would be it. Smooth action and laser-like accuracy. MIne is a 6in. but if I ever find a reasonably priced 4in. It will replace my Smiths as a work gun.

    Very, very nice piece. It's unfortunatte that they're no longer being produced. The only drawback is the strength of the frame.

    Straight "from the horse's mouth" (no pun intended), the "Guru" or "Master" at the plant, the Python's frame is not as strong as a Smith or Ruger. Exstensive or continued use of "hot loads" will bend the frame.

    As a city cop, I carried this in 21/2" and 6". As a Fed, I carried a 4". Best duty gun I ever had...but the powers to be declared we would all carry a S&W 9mm.

    I still have my beauty that I carried as a deputy. I loved the way it felt in my hand and the ease of shooting it was like cutting butter. Will give this weapon in my will to my neice who wishes to go into law enforcement. It's a good one for us ladies...*smile*

    My first duty weapon in 1980. The one I own is a early blue 1966 model. I carry it off duty, although a bit heavy the 357 takes no prisoners

    A product of Colt's custom shop, this is by far one of the best revolvers ever produced. I own one and wish I had more!

    I have a 6inch and a 2inch nickle Python. It is, in my opinion, the best revolver ever made.

    Classic revolver. Smith makes a great gun, but to put the two together is like compairing a Cadilac and a Pontiac.

    Carried the six inch for a decade,,until I got a series 70 .45. I loved it. Nothing gained more attention from the bad guy than seeing that hand cannon aimed in his direction. Never had any problems with it.

    Probably the most gorgeous revolver ever built. Yet still accurate and reliable.

    I carried a Colt Python in the mid 70's and it was the cadillac of handguns. I carried many smiths during my career and this weapon was head and shoulders above the S&W.
