I'm sure Colt will get these ironed out eventually but here's another (different) failure where the firing pin isn't striking the cartridge:

I'll wait to pick one of these up down the road.

^^^^^^^^

I viewed the kid's other original video and he is also having Hickok45's issue of the cylinder not turning.

The guys on Colt Forum are having issues with marred muzzles/crowns on the their new Pythons as well. Not a great launch for this firearm.

I handled one this weekend at River City Gun Exchange. "In person" it looks and feels in hand more like the old model Python than may be apparent in photos. The DA trigger is much better than the old model. SA thumb cocking is very smooth but not as soft. I'd say that's due in part to the different lock work but also because the thumbpiece isn't as elongated. I'll wait to buy one, but definitely will. On its own it, seems like a well thought out and made gun.

I'm surprised how nice the Ruger GP's look up close these days. Was hard to pass up when Turners had then on sale over the holidays.

I think we handled the same one I ended up buying the last king cobra 4Ē model they had and I put down a deposit on the python in 6Ē but I am reconsidering it. Not only because of the potential issues they are having but also because of the SA only. I canít find any diagram or instructions showing the new pythons internals, and I donít really want to have to deal with it. Iíd just wait for it to be released on the roster and buy it in the future.

Best practical comparison and contrast video I've watched so far. He puts a Lyman trigger pull gauge on both guns in single action and gets 4lb 1oz on the 2020 Python and 3lbs 1oz on his 1982 python.

Can't you just buy it, DROS it then have them fix the broken trigger after you pick it up? But I doubt you'll have to wait long for the roster. I only saved maybe a month when I SAE'd my .357 LCRx.

Never buy a brand new released gun. Always issues with first batch and prices are normally jacked up too

Check post #7 for a shot of the internals.

The DA sear will drop out easy - pin will push out with finger pressure. Should be simple. Of all the SA conversions I've done or revolvers I've worked with these look to be about the easiest to do.

Thanks for the links. I ended up putting the deposit in though at Turners, so it will probably be around in the spring. I think I’ll wait to see about these issues before I buy. Also, the % markup where is saw it at will make it over $2100. They sold the one they had for $2100 and the next ones will probably be more until the market settles. Turners was $1449.

A fool and his money will soon be parted.

This is referencing to those who are paying over MSRP for the new Python.
