Colt Python Capacity

The Colt Python is chambered in .357 Magnum and has a 6 round revolving cylinder.  This gun can also safely shoot .38 Special cartridges.

Colt Python Ergonomics

The Colt Python is built on a K frame to help tame the gun when firing.  The trigger pull is incredibly crisp in single-action while the double-action pull is as smooth as glass.  The wood grips are checkered on the left and right sides to add a bit more grip to better control this gun when firing.

Colt Python Fit & Finish

The Colt Python is made of hardened stainless steel that is polished to a near mirror finish.  Vintage Colt Pythons are all incredibly well made.  The new-production Python models are built to the same specs as the original with upgraded iron sights, however the side plates on the frame might not match up as well and some screws may not be torqued properly.

Fit and Finish

Colt Python Concealability

The Colt Python is only concealable in a shoulder holster under a jacket.  Don’t carry it in a drop leg holster…it will impede your stride when running after Carl for not getting back in the house.
