    Love it! I wonder if they'll offer a 4-6 inch barrel.

    I hope they offer it with an adjustable rear sight.

    3 inch barrel, .357 magnum , fixed sights, what a carry gun should be and seldom seen. Might consider letting my Det. Special .38 Special, 3 inch barrel go for one of those.

    They should have just put a barrel on it like the original Colt Python, and then I would be interested in buying one.

    Looks like copy of a Smith 686.

    The more competition in the wheelgun market, the better.

    Looks like a new Charter Arms.
    You can miss fast & you can miss a lot, but only hits count.

    It is encouraging to see Colt trying to stay in the game. I really like the concept--6 shot, 3" barrel, 28-oz package in 357 Magnum. If good quality is there, I will buy one.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.

    Yep, I am going to take a look at one for my wife(not that I am the least bit interested in it for myself!!). Seriously, I tried to change her over to autos figuring that they might be easier for her to handle but after I bought her one of the striker fired 9mm's, she shot it and said no thank you, I prefer my Smith K frame(the one I bought her for our 40th anniversary 18 years ago.. Bless her heart, james

    Looks like, yes, but mechanically very different. The large frame Charter is a dandy in .38 Special, I had a late model Police Undercover which was a great wheelgun. Sold it to get out of debt, unfortunately.

    On a semi-related note I have a Rossi 461 .357 with 3" tube and love it! It's basically a heavy duty Detective Special with S&W style lockwork. Uses the same holsters and speedloaders too.
