Then add a smooth face trigger, and a DLC finish. Round butt the frame and have VZ grips make a nice aggressive set of stocks. If they really wanted to be awesome they could also offer that same exact gun in a 6 shot 10mm cut for moon clips.

    As a carry gun the King Cobra is more size efficient for sure for those wanting to carry a package that weighs that much and only has 6 rounds on board. In some jurisdictions that’s probably not a terrible option though, and at least the KC frame seems robust enough to feed a steady diet of stout loads to train with the gun.

    I just feel really cramped on the King Cobra and K frame sized guns personally. Not something I enjoy shooting because of that.
    I doubt I could resist buying the 7-shot Python you describe!

    I have medium hands and the KC feels perfectly sized for me.

    It's another topic but I believe someone is missing sales not making an L frame sized revolver for the low-pressure cartridges like .44 Special and .45 ACP.

    Only Charter Arms does and they're junk.

    Speedloaders seem to be a no go on the new Python. I would have to pull my original out and the new to see where the issue is. The crane either doesnít extend the cylinder far enough from the frame or the stocks are too high to insert the rounds without the speed loader from hanging up on them.

    Think last time I tried it, I had to stop short of fully opening the cylinder and fight the loader around the grips.

    Hm.

    I'll research and see if I can find anyone else who has this issue and why.

    I'm reading the HKS 586 works fine.

    But very few others do.

    Hackathorn said itís the stocks are a no go with speed loaders.

    Donít have any for it to test. Besides, I am too much of a wimp to speed load that joker and press on.

    .44 Special & Russian, man!

    200 gr bullet at 900 fps = fun!

    If you own a .44 Magnum and you donít roll your own ammo, youíre doing it wrong.

    I load for .454 Casull and full house stuff is way way more violent than .44 Magnum, but you donít have to push 240gr to 300gr bullets at max speed to make them flatten stuff. I find a 240gr at around 1000fps, 300gr at 900fps, and a 360gr doing 850fps are actually pretty shootable in a large revolver, and frankly thereís not much you will find in North America that will laugh off the 300gr and 360gr loads.

    Now turn up the speed on those two heavier bullets, and things get interesting from the recoil management standpoint. I can tell you that those loads will blast apart head sized rocks though, which is really satisfying for some reason.
