      What does /k/ think of the Colt Python?

      Is it a classy gun?

      They're great by all accounts.
      >mostly milled parts, all super hardened
      >no timing issues or frame stretching that an older Python would have seen even after several thousand 357 rounds
      >Pratt & Whitney makes the few MIM parts in the gun
      >great trigger BUT stupid spur on hammer's sear cause of Cali regs (gunsmith can take it off)
      >less parts, less complicated than old Python, doesn't require ancient Colt knowledge and tools
      >tapered bore just like the Pythons of old
      I've played with the new ones numerous times, shot an old one once and played with those when I see them
      Personally I'd take a new one, they're more consistent. Old ones can be better or worse than new ones, but they'll all have timing issues in short order if you shoot 357, and you have to have a gunsmith specifically knowledgeable on Schmidt-Galand actions to be able to re-time it
      >shouldn't happen if you stick to 38Spl
      All that said, there's nothing you need to, or should, customize on a Python; they're GTG OOTB
      However a Smith is highly customizeable, already have good triggers and I personally think they have better actions and manual of arms (i.e. the cylinder release)
      If you just want a solid 357 get a 586/686 all day long
      >you can easily class up a 686 with Mother's Mag Polish, time and patience
      >or send it to picrel
      If you want something special, get a Python
      And if you wanna be "justasgood" get a Ruger and go tell everyone how it's a tank and cope with your shitty trigger and action

        This is bait, right?
        My 110lb wife can shoot my 686 with 357 like nothing. A Python weighs about the same.
        [...]
        >overpriced
        Nah, you'd easily spend the difference on a 686 making it as nice as a Python is OOTB. They are guns that'll last generations unlike their predecessors
        Besides, the prices are below MSRP these days, when people were charging $2k+ they were overpriced. Old ones are definitely overpriced, but a bunch of boomers and zoomers that watch TWD have solidified that. Prior to that show they were easily had for ~$1,200
        [...]
        >I'd rather have a Colt Trooper
        MK III Troopers are the best looking revolvers ever made IMO
        [...]
        I have unpopular opinions but I was underwhelmed when I finally got to check out a new MR73. Maybe if I got to shoot it I'd change my mind, but as it was I would rather have a 19
        Korth on the other hand was a perfect example of insane German engineering. Perfect in every way and some Kraut magic to make the DA pull so light and crisp
        [...]
        I hate that meme that Rugers are somehow stronger than anything else.
        The whole idea only exists because S&W fricked up the 19 in the first place, leading to Ruger getting this rep and the MR73 existing
        Go find someone who said they shot out their L frame though, you'll find claims of tens of thousands of magnum rounds but nobody saying they cracked their forcing cones
        Rugers are reliable and are "tanks" but no more than a modern Smith or Colt is. I personally just don't care for them and their trigger mechanism with it's false reset has always bothered me
        Also S6 revolvers have a svelte frame like a K, the GP100 is more like an L

        These. Rugers are great guns, just stop with the homosexual talk that all other guns are weak if it’s not a Ruger, that’s how women think. Imagine only limiting yourself to one manufacturer when you can have and experience them all.

          Honestly, much as people think 357mag being stronger is a meme, it's not really especially close up. Versus bears, animals, etc it does the job better in less rounds. should you be hunting, defending, etc.
          There are some benefits to having a revolver too, no chance it'll snag the slide on anything, no jamming within reason, easier to hit with for most. You don't have to worry about firing one handed too.

          On the flip side, you've got bigger mag capacity and a higher ROF on the semi. But depending on the make, model etc jams are more frequent and firing one handed might be a no go. Ammo mags are also way more ergonomic than carrying moon clips or speed loaders. CC is also way easier for semis for the most part

          Aim's gonna be the most important thing in a self defense shooting regardless of attacker. I think the tradeoff for the benefits is worthwhile with 8 cap revolvers.

          17/3 = 5.66 targets
          vs 6 rounds of magnum power with a gun that actually features decent ergos (not as good as SA revolvers but still) which can take out a bear at a decent distance
          I'll take that over something that's passable at best in literally only one of two scenarios which are either jogger charging or you happen to be close enough in the midst of a shootout

            You are the problem if you can't shoot a charging attacker in the sternum at close range. It is not a failure of the firearm. A single 9mm in the sternum will stop an attacker.

              In footage I've seen of shootings, guys are constantly getting shot in arms, shoulders, etc. Nobody just sprints straight at a guy with a gun puffing their chest out.

      They don't use them because they go for "muh capacity" or are part of a cheap shit organization. Everybody used to use revolvers.
      Hell, SWAT still uses revolvers with a riot sheild.
      >It's too big, too much recoil.
      Have you ever fired a gun? Big heavy guns have less recoil, the weight absorbs the shock. Length wise it might be a bit bigger, but you're not a manlet, are you anon?

    • 1 year ago
      Anonymous

      the pictured gun probably has less perceived recoil than a micro 9. in general, shooting 357 mag out of a full size revolver of 4" or greater length is very pleasant to shoot. there's enough recoil to remind you that you wield some power in your hands, but the weight of the gun keeps it from being excessive.

          Waste of trips on a moron's take. One shot stop training is what accomplished gunfighters do. Anybody who has been in a life or death fight, and lives, begins to train for the appropriate range and shoots for the head, real life only gets "messy" when you're a dipshit who doesn't practice.
          I'll trust the California watchseller and the chicago cop before I trust some moron who doesn't train, they used revolvers, btw.

              semis do stop bears, deer, wild animals, etc. Thing is you often need 3-5 or so bullets more than magnum going by the data and hunters I talk to.

                It has been done and recorded repeatedly, not just black bear but grizzly too. Honestly with FMJ +p I don't think it matters much what you're using. It's going to penetrate like crazy.

                I'd rather have a shotgun or rifle any day, but I genuinely don't think it'd matter if you have a less than nuclear loaded .357, 10mm, or 9mm. .44 is more in line with rifle power, but that comes at a cost. If you're not a competent shooter, you're probably not getting a good follow up shot with it.

                You're a moron brainlet, so it's understanable you'd think like this. It's far more than that per pistol per the winning bid since the military takes whatever does the minimum for the cheapest. Then it's compounded by cheaper ammo, cheaper parts, less maintenance. Eventually you're saving millions over the long term.

                This is why most military outfits in America don't use rifles outside of AR platforms, and rarely if ever use specialty ammo like 300 black out, logistics, parts, familiarity, savings. It's all down to efficiency you moron.

              MR73 is still their go-to sidearm, moron, one or two guys using a Glock doesn't mean shit. Some also use the SP 2022, but MR73 is still prominent.
              Also Glocks are mainly issued to poorshit PDs because they get sold at around manufacturing price (~$150). This is literally the only reason why Glocks became prominent—because they shilled them at almost a loss—PDs all around that have the money to are swapping from Glocks.
              Take a look at any PD with some money to throw around like Beverly Hills or even LAPD. What do they primarily use now? FN 509.

          >its almost like that 'train for 1-shot stops' bullshit is pure bravado and in the modern world everyone accepts that reality is way more messy than the target range.
          Waste of trips on a moron's take. One shot stop training is what accomplished gunfighters do. Anybody who has been in a life or death fight, and lives, begins to train for the appropriate range and shoots for the head, real life only gets "messy" when you're a dipshit who doesn't practice.
          I'll trust the california watchseller and the chicago cop before I trust some moron who doesn't train, they used revolvers, btw.

          >1-shot stops
          I think it's important to qualify here that GIGN are special forces. Their missions are rigorously planned and practiced, so surprises aren't likely to come up. When you're a doorkicker who choreographs every shot and has 6 other guys backing you up this is a lot more feasible.

      This is bait, right?
      My 110lb wife can shoot my 686 with 357 like nothing. A Python weighs about the same.

      I think it's an amazing revolver, maybe one of the best ever made.
      And yet, it's still overpriced for what it is.

      >overpriced
      Nah, you'd easily spend the difference on a 686 making it as nice as a Python is OOTB. They are guns that'll last generations unlike their predecessors
      Besides, the prices are below MSRP these days, when people were charging $2k+ they were overpriced. Old ones are definitely overpriced, but a bunch of boomers and zoomers that watch TWD have solidified that. Prior to that show they were easily had for ~$1,200

      Full underlug only looks good on snubnose revolvers. I'd rather have a Colt Trooper.

      >I'd rather have a Colt Trooper
      MK III Troopers are the best looking revolvers ever made IMO

      The modern MR73 and all Korths are five axis CNC'd and minimally handfit and cost $3500-5000. Korth just throws a DLC coating on their guns, some of which have aluminum sleeved barrels. They aren't even bothering with fine polishing and they still cost 3x as much as a python/smith and wesson.

      Which is actually overpriced? New Python is basically exactly the same price as the 60s-80s models with inflation adjustment. I just don't get how "expensive" is a complaint against it, the attention to detail and fitment is out of this world head and shoulders above any smith made since the 80s

      I have unpopular opinions but I was underwhelmed when I finally got to check out a new MR73. Maybe if I got to shoot it I'd change my mind, but as it was I would rather have a 19
      Korth on the other hand was a perfect example of insane German engineering. Perfect in every way and some Kraut magic to make the DA pull so light and crisp

      I never said Rugers wasn’t a working man’s gun either. Of course they are the gp100 and security six are great. I’m just saying these work great also, have big frick cylinders and frame, won’t break on you after extensive use, good feeling action and lock up, came out around the same time as the colt python, and are also good robust guns. Not sure why both cant work.

      Anon I….

      I hate that meme that Rugers are somehow stronger than anything else.
      The whole idea only exists because S&W fricked up the 19 in the first place, leading to Ruger getting this rep and the MR73 existing
      Go find someone who said they shot out their L frame though, you'll find claims of tens of thousands of magnum rounds but nobody saying they cracked their forcing cones
      Rugers are reliable and are "tanks" but no more than a modern Smith or Colt is. I personally just don't care for them and their trigger mechanism with it's false reset has always bothered me
      Also S6 revolvers have a svelte frame like a K, the GP100 is more like an L

    of the revolver cylinder latch button styles, colt's is my least favorite. they're famous for having a tighter lockup than their contemporaries which feels nice to fingerfrick but doesn't really result in any kind of increased performance or reliability.

    overall I think they're nice guns but they aren't for me

    Cool guns but are overpriced by fat frick boomer bellies not even using them like the pot bellied gays they are. If you want a working man’s 357 you can actually afford and not get out priced by fat boomer bellies, get a S&W model 28 highway patrolman or a model 27. Same gun basically just the finish is different and they have pinned and recessed buttholes. N frame 28/27 will take any hot fricker load you throw in it and laugh. Just avoid buying any of the Hillary Cuck locks, luckily none of the 28’s have that.

        Frick that. The working man's revolver is a frickin Ruger and you know it. It works better than your bullshit while being cheaper, and you hate it for it. That's what makes it the working man's option.

        actually, why isn't there a reliable $500 to $700 wheel gun that competes on the level with the usual suspects in magazine fed handguns?

              Unless you live in Europe, you should be able to go to just about any gun store and walk away with a LCR or SP101 for under $700. The selection probably isn't going to be great, so if you want a specific barrel length you might have to order online, but it's not going to cost you a grand to get it.

          If you want a decent revolver under $700 you're gonna have to look around, probably used. New Taurus is supposedly much better so there's that if you're willing to take the risk.
          Otherwise

          >Security Six
          >LCR/LCRx
          >The occasional GP100
          And yes, even Smiths; 19, 60, 686, 28 (I mostly know 357) can be had under $700, particularly if you're willing to accept shitty finish and/or you're not a complete autist and don't care about the Hilary Hole
          Yes, we would all prefer one without it, but tbh I got my 686-6 at a good enough price and I enjoy the shit out of it
          Really the thing that bugs me is how the top end of the frame, the "hammer groove" for lack of a better term, isn't as concave as it is on pre-lock guns
          Someone pointed it out and I can't unsee it.
          At the same time I don't really care to go through the hassle or expense to sell this and buy a pre-lock
          Then again if I did I'm torn between a 586 and another 686. I love the Pachy grip I put on picrel but for some reason it doesn't sit well with me to put it on a 586, or likewise put wood stocks on a 686

    I have a 6 inch stainless security 6 and I really like it. The action is much nicer than any modern factory ruger I've handled. I don't know if mine got a trigger job at some point. I suspect they just made the security six better.
