The Colt Python was first seen in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]''. The gun cannot be fired while running, and must be fired from a Weaver position (grasping the butt of the gun with the right hand, then cradling the right hand and gun with the cupped left hand, all while planting feet at a wide stance) due to the heavy recoil of the .357 Magnum cartridge. It also has a moderate cylinder capacity of 6 shots, making it excellent against small groups. The Python is also available in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'', and the version in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'' (named ''Equalizer'') features a laser scope and a 6" barrel, although the scope cannot be used.

The Python is a weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It was also originally going to be featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, as seen in a beta screenshot.

DescriptionEdit

The Colt Python is the most accurate pistol and only revolver available in the GTA series. It also shares the record for being the most powerful pistol with the Desert Eagle, although the Desert Eagle edges it out, being a .50AE instead of a .357.

3D UniverseEdit

The Colt Python was first seen in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The gun cannot be fired while running, and must be fired from a Weaver position (grasping the butt of the gun with the right hand, then cradling the right hand and gun with the cupped left hand, all while planting feet at a wide stance) due to the heavy recoil of the .357 Magnum cartridge. It also has a moderate cylinder capacity of 6 shots, making it excellent against small groups. The Python is also available in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and the version in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (named Equalizer) features a laser scope and a 6" barrel, although the scope cannot be used.

HD UniverseEdit

The Colt Python is also a weapon in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and was named the Revolver. Although it cannot be visibly seen in the game, a HUD image of the weapon can be seen on the touch screen and on the Ammu-Nation website (strangely, it resembles a snub-nosed .38 Smith and Wesson or a Colt Detective Special).

LocationsEdit

GTA Vice CityEdit

GTA Liberty City StoriesEdit

  • At the Francis International Airport front roof behind an electronic billboard, the roof can be reached by a ramp.
  • Spawns at each safehouse after finding 50 hidden packages.
  • In the mission The Portland Chainsaw Masquerade, there is a Python spawning right before the staircase that goes down to trigger the mission.

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

GTA Chinatown Wars Edit

  • Available for purchase in the Ammunation website after the Fully Cocked upgrade is purchased.
  • Available during some Vigilante missions.

TriviaEdit

  • Rockstar Games renamed the Colt Python to .357 in later versions of GTA Vice City, possibly to avoid copyright and trademark infringements.
  • In GTA Liberty City Stories, the spent shells are ejected while firing, which is impossible for any revolver.
  • Though the weapon itself doesn't appear in GTA San Andreas, the model from GTA Vice City is used for the giant Python at the entrance of the Los Santos Ammu-Nation.
  • The name Equalizer may be a reference to the Modesty Blaise comic "Top Traitor" as Modesty hands Tarrant a gun of similar model she mentions it will be a great equaliser.
    • However, it could also be a reference to the saying "God made man, Samuel Colt made them equal". 
  • The scope on the python in GTA Vice City Stories may be visually inspired from a gun used in the movie "The Terminator" also set in 1984 although the movie was in Los Angeles not Miami (Vice City) and the gun from the movie was actually an AMT Hardballer (clone of the Colt M1911) rather than a revolver.
  • In GTA Vice City, there is a little glitch that can be triggered. If the player fires the Python while pressing the move left and move right buttons, Tommy will stick his knees together, but after the firing animation ends, he will also stick his legs to next to each other, and then will slowly return to his normal position (Tested on PC).
  • Within GTA: Vice City game files, the model and the texture files of a shorter Python exist. It's still unknown if the gun was additional or not.
