Colt set the firearm market aflutter with the re-release of its iconic Python revolver in 2020, which was available in 4.25" and 6" models made from stainless steel. Colt purists clamored for the return of the blued guns, though, and in 2024, Colt obliged with its blued 4.25" Python revolver. Like the initial second-generation Python revolvers, these blued Pythons feature the same redesigned internal lockwork as the stainless-steel versions, providing a clean, smooth, consistent trigger pull. The revolver has also been strengthened, thanks to a beefier top strap, but most of the gun adheres to the classic lines and profile of the original model, down to the traditional stocks and even compatibility with first-generation holsters.
