CT – NEW PRODUCTS – Still Making History: Colt Releases Updated Python

After years of research and development, Colt releases a refined and upgraded Colt Python. The legendary double-action revolver, which originally debuted in 1955, returns in stainless steel in 4.25” and 6” barrel lengths. The Colt Product Innovation Team refined the design of the new Colt Python and performed rigorous testing, ensuring it meets the demands of shooters and collectors. Numerous improvements were made to reinforce the revolver, including the use of stronger stainless steel alloys and a re-designed rear sight which allows for a 30% increase in the cross-sectional area of the top strap — meaning more steel beneath the rear adjustable target sight, for a stronger revolver and more robust shooting experience. Minimizing the amount of parts in the trigger action has simplified the mechanism, elevating its reliability and allowing for more straightforward maintenance. The testing process included over 40,000 trigger pulls on a single Python. Trigger pull scans show lighter trigger pull weights, less friction and increased consistency, re-enforcing the Python’s reputation as a gun that can be heavily used and passed down through generations. Finally, Colt builds on the modern Snake Gun legacy by adding features such as a recessed target crown, user-interchangeable front sight, and an updated Walnut grip to make this the most user-friendly Python ever. The DA revolver is chambered in .357 Magnum and also accommodates 38 Special cartridges. The new Colt Python .357 Magnum is available now through Colt stocking dealers for $1499 MSRP.   [view source]
