The Colt Python is a six shot double action revolver chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge. It has high accuracy, very fast firing speed, and fast reloading speed. It deals high damage to the enemy (2-3 hit kills to the body) and it also has very low recoil, allowing for accurate rapid fire. It is one of the few handguns wielded with one hand in CF.
In CF Vietnam, Python is available in the Item Shop (cash) while CF China sells this gun as a GP item. In CF NA it is available in the Black Market together with the Colt SAA. In CF Philippines it can be obtained temporarily through the prizes of the Mini Lotto capsules (3 days best).

- The Python has the fastest firing speed of all handguns in CF (aside from full-auto/3-round burst pistols), capable of emptying its cylinder within one second.
- Originally, the Python is hold by two hands in both 1st-person and 3rd-person, but later it was changed to hold by one hand.
- In real life, few shooters can rapid fire the Python loaded with .357 Magnum rounds with one hand while suffering very little recoil, as seen in-game. This is because .357 Mag produces a lot of recoil, noise, and muzzle flash.
- The Python is known as the finest revolver the Colt Manufacturing Company has ever produced; boasting high accuracy, smooth trigger pull, and slick action. (not known for a high rate of fire like the in-game description says)
- The Walking Dead TV series prominently features a nickel-plated Python as the main weapon of protagonist Rick Grimes.
- The Python is also the primary sidearm of Alex Mason, the protagonist of Call Of Duty: Black Ops.
