    Yeah, I sure hope it is Colt who is making them. I have two random thoughts: 1) Colt has a few but excellent MIM parts in their government model and 2) Armscore already makes a line of Colt copy revolvers.. maybe a Philippine connection?

    More Lawman than KC but sure. They want to use the old snake branding.

    Yeah, there's a cutoff somewhere. If 90% of the parts are sourced from 3rd party vendors it's not really a Colt anymore. There's way too much mystery meat here.

    I'm not interesting in replaying the 2nd/3rd gen blackpowder drama. Trying find out how much is made in Hartford and how much is sourced from elsewhere, or which SKUs are entirely foreign is tiresome. At least Walther had the courtesy to stamp their subcontracted guns as "made under license".

    Points for at least trying, but how much is Colt doing beyond putting their rollmark on it? By the time you have to ask the question, doesn't really matter what the answer is.

    Looks quite a bit different than the originals.

    Perhaps the trigger and guard appear more utilitarian, less elegant.

    I like the looks of it, especially the fixed sights. I hope it's a Colt made by Colt and the quality is there.

    It looks like the .38 version with a larger barrel. The front sight is probably the same as on the .38 just with the gold dot version. It appears to be the same frame, which means it will be very light for a .357, much like shooting a k frame, though a little smaller even.
    Lack of Lubrication -- a lot of folks who learned on bolt guns don't understand that gas guns like women run better wet.

    Seems like a lot.

    To me revolvers are a luxury gun, and these Coltís are not luxurious at all.
    If they're anything like the one that came out last year, (2018) I'd bet it's probably ALL MIM.. $900for that? Nah, I'll pass.. I got a Ruger Match Champion for Xmas, I'd say it's a better revolver for the money, more sight options as well.

    Maybe they'll steal away some S&W folks if it doesn't have a lock and Hillary hole! :)
