    Here's my 6-inch blued Python manufactured in 1978 with some "awesome" carry wear. Pythons are so fine to shoot. They aren't my favorite Colt revolver though. The Officer's Model is fully the equal to the Python for shoot-ability and I prefer it's looks because it doesn't have the full lugged barrel with the vent rib, both of which seem excessive to me. I also have a lot of affection for the fantastic Colt Detective Special snub and the huge Colt New Service.



    The Python in the field during some impromptu rifle shooting at the side of the hill at our old home place. The holster is an old Safariland. The rifle belongs to my brother-in-law and is a Marlin Model 1895 .45-70. We were trying out some of his stiff handloads on the rocks.

    I love the underlug and vented rib on the Python. I think that is what is so special about the looks of the Python. Plus I don't think you can beat the trigger on a well used Python.

    Sure, a Python is a revolver with high style and the look is rather timeless. Amazing, since the Python was introduced in 1955 and remained substantially unchanged through the entire production. The coverage of checkering on its walnut stocks being the only real variation over the years. Of course in the last years the rubber grips became popular and were frequently original equipment on Pythons.

    I guess I have always viewed the Python barrel styling much as I view spoilers on Dodge Neon Sports or tail fins on '59 Cadillacs. A stylistic exercise that doesn't add much to performance.

    That isn't completely true either. The full lug does a great job dampening recoil. I had my Python out a few weeks back shooting a spinning disc target with heavy 2400-fueled .357 Magnum handloads and it handled like a dream. I'm just not as keen on the front-heavy balance and the thick appearance.

    Here's the fine Colt Officer's Model Match, the same basic revolver as the Python with the same refined smoothness but without the high style. It was available in .38 Special and .22 Long Rifle and didn't come in chambered for .357 Magnum though. It's one of my very favorites both to shoot and to look at. This one was produced in 1957 and has the same style of stocks as the first Pythons with full coverage checkering. The Python's always had gold medallions though.

    One major change on the Python was going from a "hollow" under-lug to a solid in the mid-1960s.
