This year, Colt introduced an updated Python .357 Magnum revolver at a bargain price of $1,499. Colt was able to do this through the use of CNC machining equipment, eliminating all the labor-intensive skilled machining operations needed on the previous generations of all Colt handguns. I was overjoyed at the prospect of testing one. I’ve long-admired Pythons (though I had never owned or shot one). Colt sent me the 6-inch-barreled version. I’d been hoping for the 4 inch but turned out to be pleased with the 6 inch.
