I think it's a sharp looking revolver and hope the issue gets corrected on the 2nd trip to Colt.
    Mine has around 1200-1500 through it. So far so good but I've read of several with issues. The internal parts are kinda light-duty looking.

    I only took it out once since getting a new Ruger SP101 3in blued. The Ruger trigger isn't nearly as smooth but I haven't polished any internals. I only installed a 10 lb hammer spring. No problems, but I only use Federal primers.

    I debate selling the King Cobra while it's good or shooting it until it breaks, sending it in for repair, and then selling it. But I'd be annoyed if Colt charged me.
