There is another guy on youtube that had the same problem hickok had. Check out golden webb. The guy is a real moron, but he did have the same problem with the cylinder not spinning. He also had a lot of light primer strikes, but he didn’t convince me that the weren’t ammo related. (hard primers)

Hickok's was a loaner, from Bud's.

The shame is he was, over-all, very impressed with the Python, right up until it malfunctioned, even saying he was probably going to buy one.

Colt better get their shi*t together quickly!

Hmmm. Well I guess the old / original ones are going to hold their value very well, so long as this is the sort of quality control with the new ones.

I believe he also had the cylinder not advancing a few times, along with the light strikes.

I agree that the guy was difficult to watch, and I have to question his firearms experience/skills, but what he experienced was right there, on the video, for all to see.

I will wait a year or so before even looking at one of these guns. They are all that and a bag of chips but to pricey for my tastes.

Colt... what are you doing? Maybe I should just be happy with my Python BB gun.

I ain't buying no more "new" Colt revolvers. My Cobra that I bought new, and only had approximately 400 live rounds and maybe 500 dry fires, locked up tighter than a drum the other day. Something inside the trigger assembly broke. It gave up the ghost.

In over 40 years of shooting revolvers, this is the first that I've ever had to malfunction in any way. Now it's just a really expensive paperweight.

I'll take it to a gunsmith one day to see what the damage is, but I'm in no hurry because I'll never carry this revolver (or any new Colt revolver) again.

Best wait a year or 2. Let them work out the bugs and get the price down some.

I should have bought the Python Ultimate Stainless back in the day, That one was surely polished, and what a shine it had. Oh well. This new one in the video needs some tuning up help.

That sucks. Years ago I had an Anaconda that suffered from light primer strikes from the get-go. I traded it off.

Always wanted a Python, and I looked at the new ones with hope. Guess I'll have to wait a little longer to see if they get the bugs worked out.

Red flashing lights and alarm bells were going off at Colt yesterday.

I'm sure they will get it straightened out.
