The New 2020 Colt Python already has a couple of issues...
hickok45 review

List of issues:
1) Cylinder latch will stick.
2) Crown of barrel has dings/burrs.




ETA: i should add that Colt has already address this and is correcting it's manufacturing process to prevent the burrs at the crown of the barrel.

quote:

Dear Customers,

We are very sorry that the shipment of Python Revolvers that you received was defective. We understand your disappointment and appreciate the inconvenience this must have caused you.
There is no question that the product we shipped did not meet the very high standards our customers have come to expect and should continue to demand and receive without a doubt.
In our effort to improve the overall quality of our products, we have found the root cause that damaged the crown and immediately fixed this issue. We have since implemented strict Quality inspections to the production standards and can assure you that we are in the process of completing more thorough manufacturing and inspection. We can provide a reason for this issue and the solution if you deem necessary.
I can promise you that the highest quality standards will be met in the future because protecting our reputation for delivering the best product on the market is a key priority for us. Again, I apologize for our mistake and regret any inconvenience caused as a result.
We look forward to continuing the mutually beneficial relationship with our Customers.
Sincerely,

Colt Firearms MFG.

After manufacturing and quality control of each revolver the revolver (Frame, Barrel, Cylinder, Side plate cover, Crane/Yolk) goes through a polishing process. The polishing process requires the revolver to be fixtured on the barrel. Therefore, a change has been made to no longer hold by the barrel during polishing and completely removing any chance of damage to the crown and the crown recess. The quality department did in fact miss this issue, but has corrected it and thoroughly looking at ALL areas of the revolver. It is in fact a simple fix; we use a crowning tool that cleans the crown. We appreciate all of the feedback from our customers; we can also answer any of your questions.
Thank you.

Makes one wonder how an expensive revolver can not be eyeballed by QC and the crown dings and burrs not be noticed?

to keep cost down, quality control only looks at guns returned, saves lots of money too as many QC issues will be overlooked by the casual buyer

sadly, i can see this being true. i've never sent anything to anyone to fix if i couldn't do it myself or at least try to figure out what the problem is.

My 1970's Dan Wesson 15-2VH is looking like a much better buy than these new Colts.

Still waiting to see if Weagle99 will ever chime in with another Colt defense.
