Now, that’s a snake of a different color! Since the Colt Python was re-released in 2020, the manufacturer has worked to meet customer demand for the iconic six-round .357 Magnum revolver. That included offering a variety of barrel lengths from the shortened 3-inch model, the standard 4.25-inch gun, and 6-inch “Rick Grimes” special. No matter the barrel length, though, all of the new Colt Pythons shared the same aesthetic of stainless steel and walnut grips.

For 2024, Colt is expanding the lineup further with new blued-steel Pythons.

Available in the 4.25- or 6-inch configurations, the new Pythons are built from forged carbon steel that wears a polished blue finish. The lone exception being the topstrap, which will be matte blued to reduce glare between the sights. The guns will come with walnut target-style stocks with the Colt medallion.

Like all Colt Pythons, the blued guns are double-action revolvers chambered for .357 Mag., so they will also fire .38 Special cartridges. The fluted cylinders offer six-round capacity. Features from the 2020 refresh include: More steel in the topstrap for a stronger frame; adjustable target rear sight; user-interchangeable front sight (red ramp sight included); and a recessed target crown barrel with full-length vent rib.
