PLEASE SHOOT IT AND GIVE US A REPORT. I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT NEED ANOTHER 357 REVOLVER BUT THIS NEW PYTHON "STIRS THE SOUL".

I am interested in seeing a report. I have heard on the Coltforum about bad crowns, large cylinder gaps. Not revolving.
I am sure you paid the 1499 SMRP

Planning to shoot it today. Handling it cylinder rotates everytime, crown is good as well as grips although planning to change them to hogue anyway. Got it for wholesale cost as my best friend owns 3 gun shops. No way I would pay gunbroker prices but I would have paid MSRP if needed. I'll update after I shoot it.

I went and fired 150 rounds 38 and 50 rounds 357 in the python tonight. Zero malfunctions of any kind. Accuracy was good. Only issue is the single action trigger pull is heavier than I would like. Its 2 pounds heavier than my 2019 king cobra target. Trigger job soon to come.
