New Generation Colt Revolvers


Recommended Posts

I was excited when I heard the Blued Pythons were being released. I am not a fan of the long barrels so 5 inches is about the longest I would want. There are many pictures online of the new 4.25 Python that show two rib vents I have attached a snip it. 

I spoke with a Colt representative who confirmed the one in the picture is not what you will be buying, it has 3 Vents, for lack of a better word. She also told me that for the Python line they intend to release all barrel sizes that are offered in stainless. 

I currently have a King Cobra 2 inch stainless, and a Combat Elite Python. I will soon have a second Combat Elite and a 4.25 Anaconda. When Colt releases the other Blued Pythons, I will more than likely pick up a 3 and a 5 inch. If Colt would have made the 4.25 like the original, or the new one pictured here, I would already own one. In my experience these Pistols are amazing with one Flaw, the rear sight. Wilson combat makes an excellent replacement rear adjustable.

I've been very interested in these since they first came out. Now that they're doing them in Blue, I may well buy one. But then again, I may wait for the 5" in blue. Either way, I've yet to actually see one for real. Once I get one in my hands is when the decision will actually be made.

I felt the exact same way before buying my King Cobra, I rolled the dice and bought it before ever seeing one but after having that for a while the Python Combat Elite came out and I knew I would love it. I think once you put one in your hand you will agree with me

I'm mainly a S&W guy. I collect those and have a bunch of 'em. 😁

But I do own some Colts too. Including a 1975 6" blue Python. I like 'em. 👍

At this point I think that more than likely I will buy one. But as I said, so far I've never held one. 🙄

I love the older Smith and Wesson Revolvers, Pre trigger lock. I called Smith and Wesson a few years ago and begged them to build me a 686 Plus with no trigger lock installed. I even said I would be happy to pay more money if they wanted to consider it a custom order. They refused which broke my heart. I love the new Model 19 Carry Comp revolver, so I called them again and offered to pay more once more they refused, that just reinforced my love for the Colts

 

I would love to see a picture of your Python, man do I love the old ones!

I hear ya about the S&Ws. I have a safe full of 'em and there ain't a single lock in the bunch. I only have one with any MIM parts. 😉 S&W ain't what they used to be. 🙄

I am considering getting a 4inch Python in stainless next, it would be cool owning both an Anaconda and a Python with 4.25 barrels, so I may just do that

If Colt would chamber the new Anaconda in .45 Colt, I would absolutely buy one. 👍

I love my old anaconda in 45 colt.

I still have my 4.25 Anaconda coming, but the up-and-coming new Colt Kodiak has me thinking about adding another .44 magnum in 4.25 inch to the stable

 the new viper looks a little like a Smith model 19 to me though 

Actually, it looks exactly like a stainless version of the 4th Issue Police Positive. Check my picture above. That's it on the bottom left. 😉

There's also a couple of Diamondbacks in that same pic. 4" .38 and a 6" .22. Yeah, I'd like to see Colt bring those back as well. 👍
