    Like those who buy $3000 ~ 4000 1911's?

    Yes, the person who bought it can show it off and their friends will say Woo for a couple months. But after that it will be Meh.
    If you have enough money brains aren't necessary.

    I got to fondle one at the outdoor show today. Not as smooth as an original and double action was definitely heavier, but it was a decent revolver. I'll probably buy one at some point because they apparently also beefed them up a bit. Hopefully they'll be a bit more durable. I'm definitely going to buy a Taylor SAA before that. They do a nice job tuning up the imports.

    I was there as well yesterday and checked one out...but I am not a revolver fan so...meh.

    Rumor is a blued version is to be released once they have capacity to produce it ....

    I fondled it there on Saturday. Though I am not a revolver guy (only own 1 DW) and never handled the original, I found it wholly unimpressive. The trigger pull I found heavy, and I'm not sure if I'm the only one that noticed this, but the geometry of the trigger gave it some pretty sharp corners.

    I noticed that as well. Definitely didn't have the attention to details like that found on the originals.

    I had a chance to handle one of the new model Pythons and I was disappointed with the fit and finish. I have several I paid under $350 for in the late '50s and early 60's (the 2.5 incher I own has a date of birth in '55 bought used for $225).

    Trigger was terrible compared to the one manufactured in '55. I may buy one of the 2020 manufactured ones when they hit the used market with a price of around $850 out the door.
    The oracle is in. Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill!!

    All this negative news about about the new python might be good for me. Maybe I can still get $2K+ for my old one.

    The old ones will still be revered like pre 64 Winchesters. No worries.
