“The Colt Python is a .357 Mag caliber revolver manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. It is sometimes referred to as a "combat magnum".It was first introduced in 1955, the same year as Smith & Wesson's M29 .44 Magnum. Now unavailable, the Colt Python was intended for the premium revolver market segment. Some firearm collectors and writers such as Jeff CooperIan V. Hogg, Chuck Hawks, Leroy Thompson, Scott Wolber, Renee Smeets and Martin Dougherty have described the Python as "the finest production revolver ever made".

In 2020, it was announced that Colt would be reintroducing the Python in the "4.25 and 6" barrel configurations.[8] The reintroduced Python has been technically revised and reinforced compared to the original revolver.

The Colt Python is a double action handgun chambered for the .357 Mag cartridge, built on Colt's large I-frame. Pythons have a reputation for accuracy, smooth trigger pull, and a tight cylinder lock-up. They are similar in size and function to the Colt Trooper and Colt Lawman revolvers.

The Colt Python was first introduced in 1955 as Colt's top-of-the-line model and was originally intended to be a large-frame .38 Special target revolver. As a result, it features precision adjustable sights, a smooth trigger, solid construction, and extra metal. Pythons have a distinct appearance due to a full barrel underlug, ventilated rib and adjustable sights.[3] Colt originally manufactured Pythons with hollow underlugs but left them solid to work as a stabilizing barrel weight. When the revolver is at full cock, just as the trigger is pressed, the cylinder locks up for the duration of the hammer strike. Other revolvers have a hint of looseness even at full-cock. The gap between the cylinder and forcing cone is very tight, further aiding accuracy and velocity.[2] From the 1970s each Python revolver was boresighted at the factory with a laser; the first mass-produced revolver for which this was done.” From Wikipedia
