Almost Cringeworthy, Colt

Shorter Colt: We're selling you a $1,500 revolver that has too weak of a mainspring, has loose screws, and a messed-up crown.

The more I consider this, the more I'm of a mind to stick with my 686-1 and call it good.

For one thing, I've not heard of S&W ever advising people not to open the sideplates. And Rugers, of course, are designed to be taken apart by their owners. But if you open the sideplate on a Colt, the gnomes built into the gun escape.

“We’re decided to err on a little further the side of being able to shoot more variety of ammunition reliably” is a terrible phrase to put out there. It never sounded good from Glock, and it doesn’t sound good from Colt. Also, the dude looks and acts coked up, but that’s not untypical of a Colt fanboy.

"Shoot a variety of ammunition"? What are they afraid of, a failure to cycle?

Borepatch, I think it's a failure to function, in that it won't detonate hard primers. Sort of like those raceguns that can only touch off Federal primers.
