    Ahhh, a '66 Python, one of my dream guns. When, or if, you do sell it, please keep me in mind.

    BOTH are Gorgeous!





    And by the way, I'd tell me to F off and keep both.

    Was Colt able to unfuck the fuckery that plagued their first run of the new snake guns?
    From what I read on them, it was improperly torqued side plates which in turn the cylinder hands were to loose, true or not, I don’t know, just what I read, current models are fine, supposedly.

    I was just never impressed with the Colt revolvers, and when they went out of production years ago, prices went stupidly crazy, so I never even entertained the thought of buying one. I'm glad Colt started remaking them, but still not impressed enough to entertain the thought of getting one. IMO, the S&W revolvers are a much better revolver.

    I had to check to see if this was really about snakes... Had it been, I would have been more impressed if you had picked up two cobras...

    As it is, those are two really nice revolvers... I would be really happy if you gave me the one you don't keep... Thanks in advance...

    Current models are fine. It's still Colt lockwork, so if you are looking for a smooth DA, you are better off with an older S&W and a WC spring kit
