Originally conceived as and designed to be the company's top-of-the-line model, the Colt Python stands the test of time as one of the most memorable revolvers in history.

An I-Frame revolver that sports the .357 Mag. cartridge, the Python quickly became a well-known gun at the range and in the field. Discontinued by Colt in 1996, the Python remains a must-experience firearm, especially if you're a revolver fan, and is an ideal Gun of the Week.
