Made a second range trip today. Sportsman’s Warehouse centered the blade and tightened the lock screw for the rear sight blade.; I think I may have to adjust it to the right just a bit but it did very well today. It’s very fun to shoot, especially with .357 going down the pipe. Seeing the flame shoot out from the cylinder gap is a trip!!

Bit of a culture shock though as I also took my TSO. Almost no recoil and an amazing trigger. I think I have determined that the CZ is just too tight to use gun grease on as I had several ftrb with it. There is a bit of a tight section of the slide just before barrel lock-up and it stops about 1/4” before closing fully. To be fair it is only a couple of months old with just a few hundred rounds through it and the slide is a very tight fit.

I love 158gr max loads in my .357 Trooper MKV.

They will rattle you back to your childhood.

Although healthy, I haven't found the recoil to be unpleasant. Not sure if I have shot anything really maxed out though. I find the SIG P220 Elite SAO in 10mm to have more of a kick than anything I have shot through the Python so far. Kind of surprised really.

After about a month I have really come to love the new Python. They have been very scarce around here in the meantime. While shopping for an AR-10, imagine my surprise when all three of the gun shops I visited yesterday had new 4.25” Pythons! Prices varied from MSRP to $200 above MSRP. My local Sportsman’s Warehouse was where the cheapest one was to be found, just sitting in the case for all of one day, still with some shipping oil on it! So…instead of choosing an AR-10 I brought home a new Python:




I haven’t made it to the range yet but the trigger is as smooth as the one on my 6” Python in double action, but maybe just a little bit lighter. The crown is pristine and the finish is very nice! Unfortunately I didn’t look it over as closely as I should have as it appears that the under lug was scraped a bit when being put into or taken out of the case. It isn’t real bad but it is there. It is better balanced than the longer barrel version but noticeably lighter. I am looking forward to my next trip to the range.


Obligatory picture of the pair:

The few guys who have shot mine were very impressed as well!

Is yours a 4.25 or 6”?

I am anxious to compare the 6" with the new 4.25". I haven't found shooting .357 magnum to be anywhere near unpleasant in the 6", but really love seeing the flame from the barrel/cylinder gap Wink.

Beautiful pistols! I am interested in hearing about the difference between shooting of the two different barrel lengths. You have great taste in firearms. The Pythons, TSO, & hopefully SA-35 are all Top Quality. Enjoy.

Thank you! I hope to get a chance to shoot them soon and will post my impressions.

Yes, I have spent a fair amount of $$ and spoiled myself a bit too much the last couple of years. While I don't own an SA-35 yet I had also bought a CZ S2O just before the TSO, and a Beretta 92X Performance about 18 months ago. I was actually shopping for an AR-10 when I ran across the new Python. I feel that a handgun like the Python, being an iconic firearm, is almost a target of opportunity at this time. I am sure that will change in the future though. I guess I did pretty darn good for my first centerfire DA wheel gun purchases Wink
