Cobra Love

Last night, my LGS called to let me know that my new Colt Cobra. Although it will need more testing, I am happy to report that it ran through 50 rounds of .38 Special +p without incident.

1) Build quality seems good. Locks up tight.
2) The days of the hand polished Colt revolvers are long gone. Nevertheless, I think the stainless steel looks nice by modern standards.
3) With 6 shots vs 5, it feels heavier than my S&W Model 49.
4) Recoil with +p ammo is harsh. If they ever make a .357 version, avoid.
5) Accuracy - it is a snub nosed revolver. Minute of bad guy.
6) Trigger - I can't remember the last time I fired an old Snake gun. Thus, I cannot compare the new Cobra's Trigger to a Python. Compared to my S&W, there isn't a huge difference. Good, not great.

Overall Grade: A
