The Colt Python is a .357 Magnum caliber revolver manufactured by Colt’s Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut. It was first introduced in 1955, the same year as Smith & Wesson’s M29 .44 Magnum. The Colt Python is evidently for the premium revolver market segment.


The Python features a heavy barrel with flutes intended to reduce weight, and a heavy barrel underlug designed to overcome the recoil dampening. Even so, these are not conflicting goals.

revolver returns in stainless steel in 4.25” and 6” barrel lengths. The 2020 Colt Python features modern stainless steel alloys and a re-designed rear sight. Thirty percent more steel beneath the rear adjustable target sight gives you a stronger revolver and a more robust shooting experience.

A recessed target crown, user-interchangeable front sight, and Walnut grip with the iconic Colt medallion make this a gun you’ll want to shoot AND show off. The Colt Python for sale is chambered in .357 Magnum and also accommodates .38 Special cartridges.

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

The Colt Python for sale immediately made inroads into the law enforcement market when introduced. Due to the 6-inch barrel being popular with uniformed officers. Meanwhile, the 4-inch barrel is basically optimum for plainclothes use. However, it has since fallen out of common use. Due to changing law enforcement needs that favor semi-automatic pistols.

When law-enforcement agencies realized that the 9 mm semi-automatic pistol fire rounds. While with similar characteristics to the .38 Special with higher capacity. They began a migration to these, and other, semi-automatic pistol cartridges.

2020 Colt Python

In 2020, Colt announced it would be reintroducing the Python in the 4.25″ and 6″ barrel configurations. The reintroduced Python was technically revised. Equally reinforced compared to the original revolver.

Accuracy Testing

Accuracy testing demands that the revolver be fired from a solid bench rest at 25 yards. However, several of .38 Special loads and also .357 loads from mid-range to the heaviest loads. Results were excellent, as good as I am able to produce with any handgun.

The new Colt python for sale is a shooter’s gun and perhaps the best revolver Colt has ever manufactured.

The .38 Special 148-grain wadcutter is a fine small-game load that will anchor a squirrel or rabbit without damaging too much meat. Moving to raccoon, a .38 Special handload at 900 fps is ideal.

Mid-range Magnums with light bullets are good for coyotes or personal defense. For defense against the big cats, full power 125- to 145-grain loads are good. The heaviest 158-grain JHP loads and the 180-grain JHP are ideal for a deer-sized game.

This is great versatility. And a great gun.

    Why did I buy this? Because I recently purchased the 6″ barrel revolver and absolutely love it. It has a smooth trigger, great balance and great accuracy. I shoot about as well with this as I do with my other firearms that have red-dot or laser sights. I have used standard .38 special loads, and .357 magnum loads, and would say that recoil is not a factor. Plus, aesthetically, this is just a beautiful revolver. I tried to find one for about six months, and then, luckily, I happened to be browsing on your web page, saw one available and acted quickly! Then a few months later, I saw the 4.25 model and immediately ordered it.
