So just how many Colt snakes are there? I now have the Python and the Anaconda... So I am thinking I might just go for it and get them all... But I am not sure of all of them out there... Does anyone out there have them all and could you name them off for me... Thanks in advance... :wacko:

Now are there certain ones that you can dry fire and others you should not?

Snap caps are cheap. Put those in the chamber when you are dry firing and you'll be fine.

i was told not to dry fire my diamondback 22lr because it has a fixed firing pin (pin will hit the cylinder if there is no cartridge) while its perfectly fine to dry fire my 38 because it has a pinned floating firing pin.

I like to put snap caps in center fires. I don't dry fire a frame mounted firing pin revolver. I don't dry fire any rimfires. The firing pin hits directly on the chamber. Prolong dry firing of a rimfire will put a burr on the chamber.

In all fairness, I should add that I never had a problem with the gun. Over 3000 rounds without a failure and it required no break in. :)

Absolutely; the original pattern 1911s have Plenty of slop in the design - it's why the design works so well.

I would think the Viper would be the hardest to find...they weren't that popular when they were new, so I wouldn't think they sold that many

Seems like they should make a "garter snake" for the ladies...
take care

There was a proto-type from Colt called the "Asp" years ago - was to be a small gun, like a LWS Seecamp in .32 however I think they couldn't use the name due to S&W using it on a special model 39 they made in the early 1980s.

However I think the "Asp" name is like the mythical Pontiac (GM) "Banshee" model that was used for decades on many of their concept cars, but never became a car - elements of it would end up on the Firebird/TransAm, Corvette, Camaro, Beretta, etc. I believe Colt had applied the name "Asp" to different small-gun models over the years where I recall seeing a promo for a Colt Asp as a light-frame revolver (like S&W's Scandium revolvers).

S&W's Asp:
