Colt Cobra 38 Special. Everything rotates freely and seems to function fine.

There is some, but not as bad as whats seen in the pic. The picture is the worst side/parts.

Late model Colt Cobra.  In good condition those are $400 to $500 pistols.  The Cobras don't got as high a price as the all steel Dec Specials.  In that condition, I'd be hard pressed to offer $200.  The pistol is probably restorable but it would be an expensive process.  Not many smiths work on the old style Colts, parts will almost certainly require fitting.  It might be a factory job at this point and I hate to think what that price tag would be.

I have to agree with the above post.... I'm thinking $150 to $200 tops.

Agreed. To have it done right, you're probably going to have that much in the restoration.

That's along the lines I was thinking. I'm not gonna give more than $125 for it.

Thanks for the information gentlemen.
