I owned a couple of Pythons in the early 80s. Beautifull pieces, great blueing, and very accurate. However, they did not like hard use, often went out of time and spit copper out of the cylinder gap. Trigger was hard to tune and S&W ate their lunch with their trigger sytem and production of the L frame guns (586 & 686). Colt was also in financial trouble at this time and the "Snakes" were expensive to manufacture. Colt fell behind the time and never could catch up, at least as far as revolvers were concerned. Really is too bad. One of my favorite guns was a Detective Special.
