I don't think you are ever going to get a Colt SAA with a trigger as refined as that of the Python. The Pythons I have shot, out of the box, have probably one of the finest, butter smooth trigger action ever found on a revolver. The mainspring on a Colt SAA is flat as opposed to the mainspring on a Ruger Blackhawk. Comparing a SAA trigger break to one of the Python is like comparing a Chevy Camaro to Cadillac CTS. The in its original form just isn't supposed to be really refined. I basically keep mine just for the fun of shooting and owning a unique piece of history and to enjoy the looks and comments of Ruger Vaquero, and the Italian clone shooters at the range. I have had quite a few come up to me and say: "Wow, is that a real Colt; mind if I hold it?" I had a Marine Captain come up to me at the range and practically beg me to shoot it. He was shooting two Vaqueros and when he shot mine, he was amazed......his comment was: "Man, now I know why General Patton wore one on his hip; simply amazing." This SAA, my Browning Hi-Power and my Springfield 1911 are the three guns I would nerver part wity.

Seeing that this post came up again I'll tell you what I did. It's mine. The thing is pretty nice. It appeared to be unfired. Not anymore. I was tempted not to shoot it but I was to weak to resist. It shoots much better than I thought it would. I am using 38s in it. There is no regret in my purchase.

Congrats. I hope to own a Colt SA someday. I would sure like to see some pictures of it.

Nor should there be regret. I am also amazed at how accurate my SAA is with the .38 Specials. This is the one gun I IMMEDIATELY clean when I get it home from the range though. Keep her pretty.

I don't have an SAA in 357, but I do have two in 44 Special (4 3/4 and 5 1/2")---both are blue and CH---both are great to shoot and a pleasure to own.
