New Colt Pythons are officially out in the wild as Colt has created 3 new offerings by adding in Hogue grips along with a bead blast stainless finish. The common barrel lengths of 3″, 4.25″, and 6″ are still available in these new Python offerings with a more comfortable choice of a rubber grip as opposed to their walnut grips.
Colt @ TFB:
The MSRP for all of the new Colt Python models is set at $1,299. This is $200 less than their original counterparts that sported a high-polish stainless (compared to the new bead blast stainless finish) and walnut cut checkered grips (now traded out for Hogue rubber grips). The three new offerings are listed below:
- Colt Python 6″ Bead Blast Stainless .357 Magnum Adjustable Sights Hogue Grips
- SKU: PYTHON-SM6RTS | UPC: 098289003492
- Colt Python 4.25″ Bead Blast Stainless .357 Magnum Adjustable Sights Hogue Grips
- SKU: PYTHON-SM4RTS | UPC: 098289003515
- Colt Python 3″ Bead Blast Stainless .357 Magnum Adjustable Sights Hogue Grips
- SKU: PYTHON-SM3RTS | UPC: 098289003522
Following the extraordinary success of the Python reintroduction, we are excited to announce a new Python Series with a stainless bead blast finish and Hogue grips. This series will include all the standard barrel lengths.
While I would not categorize these new Colt Pythons as “cheap,” these newer offerings sporting Hogue rubber grips are more affordable than their predecessors. If by cheapening the price-point by $200 and making it “less pretty” so more people are willing to go out to the range to shoot and play with them, then I am all for it. The more double-action revolver choices we have the better. As always, let us know all of your thoughts about these Colt Pythons in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
