  • Iconic look and feel

  • Tons of fun to shoot
  • Pricey
Editor’s Note:

It disappeared for a bit…but it’s back. The Python has made a triumphant return and builds onto Colt’s Snake Gun series. This revolver is a decent wheelgun that admittedly had some kinks on first launch, but those seem to be worked out. It offers a modern stainless steel barrel while keeping to that classic Python look. It’s accurate and a stunningly fun gun to shoot.

final verdict

The Colt Python brings a nostalgic take on revolvers back to the market with a .357 Magnum chambering and stainless steel frame. Weighing over 2 pounds, it’s hefty but manages recoil well. If you like classic wheelguns, add the Python to your wishlist.
