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.

Thoughts:
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

    Nice to see one finally turn up. I've been asking around locally and no one has any in the pipeline.
    Would love to shoot one side by side with my second issue cobra.

    Congrats.

    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Full length shrouded ejector rod. Very good!
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.
