    Anything made can have problems, it's how you deal with the problems that sets you apart. No business can function without email these days. The lack of communication, even a terse note, makes Colt look unprofessional.

    Just looking for insight into the workings of revolvers generally, I found something similar on the Ruger forum wrt to lockup problems

    and light strikes

    $2,200.00 for a Colt Python?

    I am perusing an old Gunrunner tabloid right now. 1974 you could get a 6 1/2" barreled Python for $260.00. Allowing for inflation since then this new rendition is Almost $1000.00 more than it should be.

    the interwebs have made perceived value a big marketing tool, hype sells, the tooling has existed since 1955 afaik, shouldn't be much development costs, no reason for price

    I thought the new ones were CNC’d? Colt got rid of most of their qualified hand fitting staff when they shelved all the old guns to concentrate on Army contracts IIRC.

    Those are ugly looking crowns. Dull tool? Chatter? Either way, that is not the kind of quality you need to retain product loyalty. Another company destroyed by bean counters.

    my bad, I had thought they still made I frame revolvers other than Python, I have since learned Cobras only look similar and they stopped making Troopers
