COLT KING COBRA 357 MAG.

I inherited a Colt King Cobra revolver, 357 magnum, with a four inch barrel. It has become my favorite handgun, as the neoprene grips fits my hand like a glove. I think the balance of this gun is excellent, with the heavy barrel up front it tracks beautifully without a hint of barrel shake and the sights are prominently visible.

The double action is butter smooth and I can trigger it without disturbing the sights from the aim point. The single action is the best of all other revolvers I have; with it I can keep a coffee can bouncing around all day long at sixty yards distance.

I don’t know if the double action and single action of this revolver is typical of them all or if my father had worked on it himself, but I do know that after trying several revolvers it has become my personal favorite.




I have with the gun a Bianchi X15 shoulder holster, Uncle Mike’s inside-the-pants holster and a couple of HKS speed loaders. The X15 holster seems to have undergone considerable use; I recall my father using this gun to take does for the meat larder from his tree stand in our country property.

This is a great heirloom piece. In a world of automatic pistols it is indeeda little antiquated, slow and under capacity with only six rounds on board, but I doubt that many service pistols in use can be as accurate as this gun is.

Anyway I like it very much, it fits perfectly and I enjoy using it. I venture to guess that this is what it's all about; namely, being comfortable with one’s piece and enjoying its performance. This Colt King Cobra certainly does so for me.

Sincerely,
Pharaohawk

Can't argue with those sentiment mate.

I would argue that the S & W and possibly Ruger 357 MAG revolvers are every bit as accurate, especially if the have been tuned. Out of the box, I would run with a 4" 586 S & W, but that's just me. Nothing wrong with the Colt though...a damn fine revolver.

The King Cobra is the inexpensive version of the Python...How much are you sellin' it for, Paraohawk?

Vince, I am partial to S&Ws too, but only because the trigger pull is so easy to adjust. The finest feeling revolver action I ever shot was a Python with a honed action. But then, and more so now, Pythons are out of my reach.
