I was a big fan of the Colts, only thing to remember was the reverse cylinder release. No problem on the range, but if to be carried stick to Smiths or Colts.
You bring up a good point. If buying new for close to the same money, I do like the features of the colt better than the new S&W.Those new Colts look nice to me. I have not shot one but they feel good in the hands. As far as price they are not much if any higher than a nice S&W theses days.
The one my lgs had was in the $800’s If I recall correctly. The Python was over $1300.Thanks Colonel! I was not really looking for another handgun. The owner just handed to me, while my wife was looking at others. As to say, this is something for you. The trigger was smooth. So, that has had me thinking about getting one. As for price, I did not ask. Because, I was not looking for another handgun. But, I suspect that it may be in the $750-$800 neighborhood, which is in the range that I paid for a Smith and Wesson 360, a couple of years ago. I thought Colt to be a descent brand. Yet, that is part of the reason why I asked, wondering if anyone had any real world experiences with the newer version.
Nice!!I picked up one of the King Cobras in 22LR . 10 shot cylinder. Really smooth and light double action. I've since put some wood grips on it. This one was $950, which I believe is a little under MSRP.
