The Colt Python Revolver is Back in Production

The longest line I saw at Range Day was comprised not of people looking to shoot the latest polymer autoloader, but of folks hoping to heft 42 ounces of stainless steel. Colt has reintroduced the legendary Python .357 Magnum, which is already sold out. I fired a couple cylinders through it and can unequivocally say it’s the smoothest revolver I’ve ever shot.
