I reckon I'm safer handing this over to a pro who's done this before.
Why? You don't trust an attorney playing amateur design engineer/gunsmith?

I will say since nobody else will. Please don't destroy that Colt Python barrel. It is sacrilege at best. :rules:

Serious question, how does this rank compared to a S&W model 27 or 28?

It's not being destroyed; this is a brand-new barrel that's never been on a Python frame and was kept in storage at Colt. Now it's going to be used - but if you have a line on a complete Python frame for the $600 or so a Ruger would cost, I'm all ears.

I'm not sure what your question means.

Andy, basicly what the advantage over an N frame.
Ive never shot a ruger with a compable trigger.
Why not a sw/ python?

Oh, I see what you mean. No advantage - I'd simply rather a Ruger was de-barreled than a nice S&W.

Barrel arrived just now - absolutely mint:

Looking forward to progress reports and photos. A Python is one of my Grail Guns! I may have to hit the lotto first! :lol:

Yeah, I wish I could afford a Python as well, but... still, I think this'll be pretty darned cool as is :)

Andy,
Saw your latest Facebook post and was wondering how closely the Ruger and Python barrel cylinder pin shrouds align.

I have no idea; I'm leaving the details up to the expert. I do know that there's no lockup at the front of the ejector-rod and that a ball-detent or two will need to be installed in the crane area.
