First, there are several of them; flame cutting tends to be concentrated across a single line. Time will tell if Colt can/will stand behind this new “work of art” !

So I tried it last night.

When I ETSd I bought a 6″ stainless Python. Not that I’m trying to elevate myself to their level. The alternative was to content oneself with carrying a J-Frame/SP101-class revolver with a reduced round count. I am 67 and just bought my first Colt… Python…Feels great…going to shoot it this week. Had I properly managed the DA revolver trigger by letting it go forward to reset, instead of feeling for a click, I wouldn’t have had the problem. By Michael R. Shea.

And we believed every word of it. It was not a production model though. Pieces of their heads all over the back yard. True to Colt form (and somewhat confusingly to a Ruger/S&W guy) it rotates clockwise.

But it’s my job to show the imperfections as well when I see them. There simply is no comparison to the old fashion quality of yesteryear and today’s modern made cast iron garbage. I’m not one to engage in hyperbole (I generally consider it to be the last resort of the poorly-lettered), so take my word at face value when I say, the fit of this revolver is absolutely superb. Timing and endshake issues are your main concern, not frame cracking.

The gun seems to be about the perfect size for carrying everyday but those grips are kind of a turn off, for myself anyways. This revolver fills an important role in the RevolverGuy’s battery, somewhere between his full-sized shooting iron and his snubby. Had the King Cobra been an option when I initially entered the revolver market I daresay it would have been at the top of my list, provided aftermarket support made it a feasible carry option, and there’s a good chance I’d still be carrying it today. None better. The standard pressure load is quite good (and what I carry) especially when you take ease of reloading into account, but the +P version seems to expand too soon causing less penetration. The double action pull weight as measured on my Timney Trigger gauge averages a very reasonable 9 1/4 pounds. This weekend during load development, I drove 20 rounds of .45 Colt ammo through a Ruger Bisley.

I managed to score a 48 out of a possible 50. YOU guys asked for more revolver stuff and me and Colt delivered. This gun seems to be a good size. The +P version of the Critical Defense really doesn’t do that great, especially if you have a slightly longer or faster barrel. Considering its relatively light weight, recoil in .357 Magnum is very manageable. As I’m trying to stay high speed, weight is a serious concideration as I roll with a prepared mind set. The 3″ revolver seems like a good IWB gun (similar to G19). Your follow up on peoples questions and comments is also admirable. Recoil was not bad at all. With it’s medium size and 3″ barrel, shooting at a mere ten yards made me feel like I was doing the gun a disservice. I expect that topstrap will wear some adjustable sights soon, and who knows what else will follow? We will keep it in mind! Like every double-action Colt, it has just a bit of stack right at the back of the trigger pull (and I do mean right at the very back). Mainly … producing frames that need no machining or even buffing to build a gun. Initially this explanation sounded good, but then I realized I haven’t had this problem with any of the other revolvers I shoot consistently, which include the GP100, 686, 640, and some others I’m testing. The first—it seems to induce what I termed a “premature reset response.” When one completes a cycle of the trigger and releases it, there is an audible and tactile “click” and accompanying drop-off in return-spring tension about 2/3rds of the way through the trigger return. View all posts by Justin. I picked up a post WWII Smith M&P revolver in April for only $250 bucks not the outrageous 900 bucks of this new model Colt and yes I know its not a .357 but I know something most people do not know, I do not need a .357 especially when Pistolero Magazine shot pigs with both the .38 special and .357 Magnum and noticed no difference in killing power at all when used at point blank range which is were almost all gun fights take place and if you blast away at someone at long range you had better have a damn good lawyer or your going to be in more legal jeopardy than the person who broke into your house or attacked you on the street. A number of years ago Massed Ayoob commented on mine and the ivory grips I had on my 1911. Though I repeat myself, I attribute this to the gun’s large grip and 28-ounce heft. I remember the G&A cover on the 629. I can only image how good it would look blued. To see machining marks there would be off-putting to many revolver aficionados and collectors who obsess over buying revolvers without flame-cut marks on that area of the top strap. Colt King Cobra: Revolver Test and Review. Some grips from some manufacturers for the Cobra may work on this gun. If that rebound lever’s geometry is tweeked for whatever reason in a classic Colt DA, the timing of the gun falls apart – quickly. Smith & Wesson’s use a hammer block that basically works the opposite way (the transfer bar fills the gap between the hammer face and the firing pin during firing; the hammer block stays out of the way during firing so the hammer face strikes the firing pin directly, then, when the trigger is released, the hammer block moves up to hold the hammer away from the firing pin). The standard brass bead insert is interesting. Action: Double-action The reintroduced .357 Magnum lives up to the original's reputation from the golden age of Colt wheelguns. Many revolvers ( even Smith’s) have a light cut in the top strap from the factory. ©COPYRIGHT 2020, THETRUTHABOUTGUNS.COM ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Do you know why Colt didn’t fit the King Cobra with a full-length ejector rod. You don’t like my posts? One to start the cylinder turning and one to lock it up tight when you pull the trigger.

Handled a complaint for him shortly before I retired. Having a 6 shot 357 in a SP101 weight is pretty nice.

Meant to mention, one of my best friend’s son-in-law is a guide on Ted Turner’s ranch in New Mexico. I have. Ol’ Skeeter’s load scored groups triple the size of other loads. Without a specimens of each, side-by-side, and someone more knowledgeable in the inner workings of Colt’s revolvers than Mike or me, anything we could tell you would just be a wild guess. It is an interesting read. Strong enough? Take a look at that mainspring in the photo above. Quick and powerful, it every bit lives up to its namesake. Will any of the parts in the the New King Cobra fit in an older King Cobra.
