    I want one too, but I just keep telling myself how uncomfortable that stupid serrated trigger is going to hurt me, and then I lose my desire. (yes I know a polishing wheel could fix that big problem).

    Have we discussed this before? A S&W M20.

    I keep something like moleskin in my range bag if I'm taking a G19 to minimize slide bite. Since it wouldn't be a high round count thing, I'd utilize it for this as well. Or I'd buy a second trigger to grind.

    I think we did in the Short Fuse Enabling thread within the last page or two. Either the M20 or the 620, I don't recall.

    If I were looking to buy another 357 that would be the one. I would certainly buy a Colt before I purchased another S&W anything. I've never owned a Colt revolver but they have to have better quality control than S&W these days. I have three 357 S&W revolvers all built before the key lock. Nothing wrong with the lock but quality went to hell about that time. S&W is a more expensive Taurus these days. I have a Taurus at the repair center now but I don't expect them to fix it. Might become a P-F lottery item for parts. Or as they say in the biz, a gunsmith special. Jury is still out.

    Hasn't the Python still been having QC issues? My brother's had to go back to the factory for the action locking up mid trigger pull and also still has light strikes a bit more often than I'd like.

    I'm not up on the Colt issues. I do know about the S&W issues however.

    Maybe some Colt buyers could chime in.

    No, I'm not going over to the Colt forum. Those brand specific forums are an echo chamber of I spent my money wisely, prove me wrong heretics .

    I thought I had a problem with a 3Ē python shortly after I bought it, turns out the side plate screw was backing out after 50 rds. I tightened it up and there have been no issues since. Iím looking to buy a 5Ē now.
