    I had a 6 inch King Cobra back in the mid 90's. Decent gun but the trigger out of the box was awful. Ended up selling it and grabbing a SW 586 instead.

    Good to see someone trying at least to bring a new revolver to the market.

    That revolver looks on par with Charter Arms quality. $900 for that? no way. I paid less than $900 for My Colt 357, and .357 Colt Trooper combined within the last few years. That would be the direction I would look if I wanted a "Colt" revolver because this doesn't appear to be it..

    Agreed.

    I guess if I want the kind of quality Iím looking for in a DA revolver itís going to be a Korth or Manurhin.

    I had one of the early .38 cobras. It had a good trigger and was finished well enough. Comparing it to a Charter seems a bit much---but obviously this is no Korth. Hopefully they will come out with the 2 Inch .357s with the bead blast finish for a little less. Also, hopefully someone makes some laser grips for these things.

    I hope the quality is high, and the photos donít do the revolver justice. I fully realize that Iím in the minority of gun buyers and what Iím looking for is such a narrow niche that Coltís isnít going to be too concerned with my wants.

    The new Cobra is probably a good little revolver for the vast majority of buyers and the realistic use they will put them through.

    Iíd love to see Coltís introduce a viable replacement to the Python quality revolver with more modern lock work. Sadly this wish will not be fulfilled.

    This wheelgun is now on the Colt's website. Comparing pictures shows how the frame is thicker both above and below the cylinder, compared to the current .38 Cobra. So it will be a heavier gun than just a Cobra with a longer barrel.

    .... and marketed as a collectible firearm. Yeah sure, because a generic Charter Arms looking DA revolver with MIM everything and a pony on the side is going to set the collector market on fire!

    This is really marketing speak for: ďNot duty suitable, or intended for frequent use. Please donít shoot more than a box of ammo through this gun please.Ē

    Anyway...

    It looks like it will be 3 inches so that should give it a full length ejector rod. Also, it is going to come in around 10 oz (possibly more) lighter than a 686.

    The profile shot on the Colt web sight makes this gun look amazing. I am going to have a hard time resisting one of these. I hope they come out with a night cobra model soon. https://www.colt.com
