    They definitely sound interesting for sure.

    Yeah... I think he meant the trigger. The old Colt had a rep for a trigger that stacked badly. The new trigger is reportedly MUCH improved with no stacking.

    Even if you end up buying this new Colt, you still need a 686 in your life. Smiths have the best revolver actions bar none imho.

    I may have to re-evaluate not being a revolver guy... that’s pretty!

    Yeah... I'm starting to think... a 4" barrel model in stainless. And, a 6" in Royal Blue, if and when they come out with them. TWO of 'em!

    HIckok45 puts the 2020 Python through its paces, and it exhibits a couple of failures.

    He talks about it at the beginning of the video. You can then skip ahead to about the 30:20 mark.

    Watched the whole thing. Well... that's a bit concerning. But, I bet they get it sorted out. There's too much at stake. The good thing is that it's probably going to be a while before I can swing one. So, hopefully when I'm ready, they'll be ready!

    Colt needs to get ahead of this PRONTO. Or, they're done. Forever.

    Watched the video, too and wholeheartedly agree. My guess is something changed between the design, build, test phase and full scale production phase of this new production gun. A brand new Colt revolver should be 100% reliable. Still want one but only AFTER Colt gets this insidious cylinder issue worked out.

    Here's mine. Royal blue, 4" barrel, produced in 1981. (My lousy photos come nowhere near to capturing the beautiful, deep blue, ultra high gloss finish.)

    I like it a lot and it's a wonderful revolver to shoot. But, I shoot my Smith & Wesson Model 15-3 with 4" barrel (produced in 1975) just as well. And, my Ruger "Couger" (A Ruger Security Six frame with Colt Python 4" barrel, assembled in the early 1980's by a very talented gunsmith) is very close.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride! - Hunter S. Thompson -
