Colt Adds 8” Python to Iconic Revolver Line

Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC proudly announces its addition of the 8” Python to the iconic line of revolvers. The new 8” Python is available in matte stainless or stainless steel finishes. The inclusion of the 8” Python series now brings the family to seven unique revolvers, all chambered for .357 Magnum, with barrel lengths varying from 2.5” to 8”. The addition of the 8” model introduces a new look to the collection, enhancing its versatility.

The double-action 8” Python revolver boasts a six-round capacity, user-interchangeable red ramp front sights, and adjustable target rear sights. With 30% more steel beneath the rear sight, this revolver offers a stronger and more robust shooting experience.
