!!!

I know that the direction their cylinder spins will probably get my SnW programmed self killed if I needed to reload in a gunfight but I wants one!

SnWnMe 05-22-2019 1:14 PM

This is the only one they added from the Cobra line.

No Night Cobra but that's only a Dremel session away.

ArmsUnlimited 05-22-2019 1:21 PM

Both the King Cobra (357mag, 3" bbl) and the Cobra have been added

waygeekierthanu 05-22-2019 1:21 PM

We are getting the cobra in stock Tuesday if you want

Dammit, right after I bought myself a wheelgun. I can't justify buying another (at the moment, at least).

Maybe Colt will release and roster a 44 mag version soon.

Donít need no stinking justification to get a wheel gun! If you like it buy it! :oji::)

I've always been a fan of blued Colts. If they add a blued one I'll get one immediately.

The ďpull, not pushĒ cylinder release will kill you first.

Sad when this is triumphant news regarding the doj approved list.

A new "blued" Colt will look nothing like an old blued Colt.

HOGDOG1955 05-22-2019 3:57 PM

i would even settle for the finish on the smith 586 classics. but stainless works for now,lol. now just see how long till turners can get me one.

Air 05-22-2019 4:29 PM

If they made a 4 inch model with adjustable sights, I would consider it. Otherwise, sticking with my Smith's.

plumbum 05-22-2019 4:29 PM

Honestly that King Cobra is awful sexy.

I’m not feeling it, not digging the blocky nose. The original looked way better there. Also not sure how I feel about the new trigger guard yet, or the lack of a proper rear sight. It just doesn’t have any soul, and absent that I’m not sure I’ll throw down that much for a wheel gun, even if it does have a prancing pony on it.

Compare the wannabe King Cobra to the original

Colt revolvers were arguably the best looking of the Big 3 makers. That was a huge part of their appeal. And the ones above just don't cut it. If they were Charter Arms I would have been impressed. I hope Colt success in the future. I sincerely do. But I'm gonna pass on these.

tbc 05-22-2019 6:37 PM

The Bright Cobra is not on the roster.

The trigger guard is the off thing for me too. I generally like the chunky-ness of the top strap and I always dig fixed sights. Reminds me more of a Security-Six with a S&W barrel.

BajaJames83 05-22-2019 7:19 PM

Who's bright idea were those lame fixed rear sights.... Smith's killed the old colts, you think colt would learn their lesson

dfletcher 05-22-2019 7:21 PM

I think post-73 wood grips and changing the fiber optic front sight will make the Cobra look much better. That's my plan anyway.

93chipper 05-22-2019 7:22 PM

I seen that river city gun exchange posted that they had limited supplies of the .38 and .357 in stock

elSquid 05-22-2019 7:52 PM

Once Colt adds an adj rear to the King Cobra, necessitating a ramp on the barrel, the aesthetics will improve. Plus adj sights are useful. ;)

Once that happens, Iím probably in for one.

Colt said at SHOT that sometime around summer, they will be releasing a 4" king cobra with an adjustable rear sight. The rep also said that they are going through the frame sizes right now starting with small and working their way up. It was hinted that next year will be the python frame size.

HOGDOG1955 05-22-2019 10:41 PM

new king cobra

DrJeds44 05-22-2019 10:54 PM

Coyote Point Armory in Burlingame has them both in bound. Saw a King Cobra there today.

Thanks, I wait to see that 4Ē then maybe get down

hambam105 05-22-2019 10:59 PM

That new Colt .38 snub sure looks a lot like the Charter Arms snub thirty-eight. :saddam:
Until Colt offers a new model in the only real revolver cartridge, .32 Long Colt, I'll pass. :nuts:

CWL 05-22-2019 11:00 PM

I'm surprised CA DOJ allowed a DA revolver onto the roster, don't they know the danger of allowing assault revolvers into CA?

The .357 Chiappa Rhino I bought 2 months back was only available as a SA.

AMEN! Especially if it's only the one, can't have too many revolvers

It looks to be a different action. There is no upside down hump above the trigger in the new one.

That could be good or bad. Anyway, As many wheeies as I have I don't have a single 357. I'm hoping the new KC is closer to SP/K frame than L frame. I'm putting it on the buy list if I like the trigger. I hope it doesn't stack like the old Colts do.

We have been selling these since they came out via single action exemption. We currently have a backlog of about 4 people as soon as I get them in the first person on the list gets called and we go down the list. If you would like to be added to the list let me know and I'll totally do that often times people find one before I can get one so you may get it sooner than you expect

I’ve got 4 king cobras on order at ammo bros, can’t wait.

Walther_Guy 05-23-2019 8:48 AM

DROSed mine yesterday on the way home from work. I get what everyone's gripes are about it, but I own the 4" blue KC from the late 80's and the Whitetailer II (essentially a King Cobra with 8 inch vented rib barrel) and I am excited as hell about these new guns hitting the stupid roster! :D
