I have many semi-auto's and one revolver...A S&W Model 19 .357 Nickel. I want to get another revolver and I am thinking about getting a Colt King Cobra S/S 4in.
Anyone own one that can give me their "word" on this revolver? Input would be apprieciated. Thanks.

I had one in 4", sold it to a co-worker.
Good accurate gun, sold it because I needed cash for another Kimber.

Buy it. Good solid accurate revolver with a great trigger.

I own an earlier one bought in the late 80's. After shooting it a few times the barrel would be canted, I guess from the torque of the bullet twisting in the rifling, sent it back to Colt, the "fixed" it, after shooting it again same thing happened, they sent me a new KC this time. I go tthe bright stainless finish they didnt have the matte stainless at the time, I prefer the matte stainless though.

My KC is my beater .357

I like mine. Very accurate. Better trigger than any Smith I have ever fired. And Colt does something different than oyher gun makers when it came time to finish the bore on the KCs. Running a patch or brush down the barrel feels like you are cleaning a glass lined tube. The smoothest barrel I have ever felt.

The King Cobra is the revolver to get if you don't want to shell out the money for a Python, or want the Colt quality and also want a gun you won't be too leary about dinging or shooting to the extremes.

I love the King Cobra, but not as much as the Python. I'm waiting for the production to start up again before I hop on one.

A number of years ago, Lew Horton had a special run of 500 King Cobra's made called the "Combat Cobra". He had 3" barrels put on them, special boot grips, mirror finish stainless, action job, special sights, and engrved "Combat Cobra" on either side of the snake logo. It was a sweet package. Should have gotten one then when they were cheap, and I am still looking for one now. Saw one on Gunbroker last year but the bidding got too crazy and I got out at $780. The winning bid was $995.00
