Our Assessment: This is one of those great "like a Python" .357 Magnums from Colt. With an unfluted cylinder, ported barrel and full length rib, this gun should be quite a shooter. The rifling is great and the balance is very nice. This is the hunting camp plinker, defense, target, competition revolver, and its all here. Attention California Colt revolver collectors. This is private party transferable in California.
