Double action revolvers require "hand fitting" hand fitting means more higher skilled workers, higher payroll and less profits. Since Colt moves in and out of bankruptsy every 10 years it may not be finacially viable for them to make revolvers anymore.

You would have to charge 3-4,000 dollars for it and not many would be sold. Not a smart marketing decision.

Korth a German brand produces Python run through the precision shop type, 6 guns and of course get a premium. I have never seen one I could pick up. But they are out there.
To make a short story long, don't carry your snake guns.

I own a 1976 Python in 99% condition that is a safe queen. The Model 19-3 that I own along with my 27-2 are my favorite revolvers with the Model 29-2 Nickel plated a very close 2nd.

Florida comes to mind as well, probably a couple more too.

My opinion about open carry is that's very intimating. I would rather wait on someone at 7-11 who wasn't showing me his carry. Or go to Macy's with a handful of packages and have Ishmail walk by me with an AK slung over his shoulder. I would rather be surprised when he take the Kriss out of his backpack. Opinions are like a--h---- and most stink.
