Colt stopped production of the traditional Python in 1990, focusing on a Target Python. In 2020 two new stainless steel models were released with a 4.25" and 6" barrel.
The Colt Python is a family of six-round double-action revolvers chambered in .357 Magnum. This revolver was manufactured with a variety of barrel lengths. The Python has a distinct look due to its adjustable sights and ventilated rib barrel.
A preferred gift among monarchs in Europe and the Middle East, the Colt Python has also been featured in media such as The Walking Dead.
