    Is it for being shoddy or because removing parts of the original design might have made it completely unreliable?

    Both and probably a few other reasons that have not been disclosed yet.

    Come on Colt. You can do this.

    Had hopes they would do well with this but I swear Colt is run by some gun market blind managers.

    Colt has lost their mojo and has never been the same since.

    Hickok45 on youtube did a review and during his glowing report the cylinder failed to turn in double action mode. Another reviewer had the same problem. That's the kiss of death with an online failure like that from hickok45. I am sure that Colt will fix it. I just hate to see such a once great company have problems like this. Meanwhile my 63 Python, 4 inch blue, sits in the safe. Thank you dad for leaving that to me. Just found the original box too. What a great gun.

    They haven’t been a Great company for quite a long time now. Only reason they exist is they are running on the coat tails of the AR platform.
