I recently traded for a new 4.25” Colt Python. Was thinking of having a trigger job done on it. Who do you recommend?

You see these guys' name come up often for Colt Python trigger work - Heffron Precision

Maybe try and PM local_dirt too, if I recall correctly, he just sent his out to someone for trigger work.

I'm just old school enough to think that a new $1500 Python shouldn't need a trigger job. That a nice crisp trigger job was one of the reasons the gun cost $1500 to begin with.

skeen, I did send my Python to Mike Heffron. Trigger job, action job, recrown barrel. Happy with his work. Considering sending him my Anaconda, too.

Mike Heffron's experience:

between 2020 Pythons, 2021 Anacondas, 2017 Cobras, and 2019 King Cobras, it’s around 1400 total, with around 200 Anacondas and the 300 balance being King Cobras and Cobras (besides the approximately 900 Pythons).

If you have a Colt DA revolver you're going to need a gunsmith.

You obviously don't own a Python, for $1500 it "shouldn't need a trigger job".......but it does!!!!!

I owned a Python. In about 1985-ish. It didn't need a trigger job.

I am glad this topic came up. About 13 years ago I asked the same question for my original Anaconda and was told only to contact Colt. I sold it and got it back so have thought of it again. The trigger is better than Ruger's, but not as good as my older S&W.

IMO, those may in a different league, compared with these new ones.

I have an original and it don’t need anything. New ones well may.

I don’t think they can or will be able to reduplicate those older ones. Compare them side by side.

I report, you decide.

Not the same as the 35+ year old models, we are talking the new $1500 Python.

I have an original Python also that has never been worked on, the new ones need worked on.

Only thing the same is the two names. Colt & Python, the gun itself is very different internally

The new one is different.. and better.

And if you want to argue, feel free to argue with the guy that's worked on 900 of them.

If he had to work on 900, how are they better than the old ones? Never heard much about those needing work.
