The Colt Python is a .357 Magnum caliber revolver formerly manufactured by Colt's Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut. It is sometimes referred to as a "Combat Magnum".

It was first introduced in 1955, the same year as Smith & Wesson's M29 .44 Magnum. The now discontinued Colt Python targeted the premium revolver market segment. Some firearm collectors and writers have described the Python as the finest production revolver ever made. The Colt Python is a standard-issue firearm for Georgia State Patrol and Florida Highway Patrol officers, but it is very rarely used in other American states by law enforcement officials.

In The Walking Dead TV series, it is the signature weapon of Rick Grimes, carried by him throughout the series and chosen for its high stopping power and accuracy. Notably, the manner in which he aims the magnum, up and at a down angle, has become something of a joke online, dubbed "Rick's way" of holding the gun. Though Rick is shown with a revolver on occasion in the comics, it is not his "signature weapon" and he is rarely shown using it.
