I have to agree. I have a Python and it's nice. Has a fantastic trigger pull and a very smooth action though it's not been tuned. I still like shooting my Model 27 better.
Pythons almost appear to be over-polished but the blue color is nice. The vent rib styling is a bit over-the-top. I'm not keen on front heavy revolvers with full lugs (my Python is a six-inch gun). The factory stocks feel "different" but I'm sure I'd get used to them if I shot it a lot.
Still, it was an anachronism from another manufacturing age that stayed in production well into the cheap, cast, stamped, alloy, and polymer era through which we suffer. The silly things have gotten silly in pricing too which is nice if you have one, crummy if you want one.
The Officer's Model Match is the best kept secret in fine post war Colts if one wants a truly exceptional gun that is attractive and shoots wonderfully.
