    Colt King Cobra - Blue 4" Value

    I have my eye on a very nice Colt King Cobra in blue with a 4 inch barrel. I have been collecting, buying & selling S&W vintage revolvers for years, but am not very educated in the ins and outs of what Colt has done over the years. One thing is very perplexing though, I have been told for years that the Python is the cream of the crop. That being said, why are there 169 of them for sale on gunbroker, and so few of the others? Are people just wanting to get rid of them, or is it the arm and a leg that they are bringing. I have a 2.5 or 3 inch Python that was inherited when my brother died. I am not sure of the barrel length, as it is in a closet at my parents house. It has a Colt factory re-blue and looks great. Any way, about the King Cobra, what would be a fair price for mint condition, and were there many made? Also, I have a Trooper MK III, and the Cobra looks like the Trooper with a full lenth lug. Is the frame larger?
    Thanks

    I think the Python claims it's reign with revolvers and hold their own as far as premimums go. There are some way overpriced Pythons that have been lurking on GB, AA, and GA for months. The King Cobra and MKIII are the same in size but are different frames. The MKIII is a "J" frame and the KC is a "V" frame. "V" frames were successors to "J' frames and were supposed to be an improvement with shorter hammer fall and lock time, longer mainspring for a smoother DA pull, and a smaller grip frame. I'd say $900ish + on a nice 4" blued depending on condition, box etc.

    I let a mint one-owner 6" blue KC, minus the box, but with the manual, pass me by for $700....You see very few of them. However, the finish isn't as good as one on a Python. The gun wasn't worth that much to me.

    I would value a blued say 99% 4 inch KC around 850-950 with no box. With The ORIGINAL Box (which must have matching label #ed to gun) same gun would probably bring 1100-1250. Yes they did make A BUNCH more pythons than King Cobras, but the Python is the cream of the crop as far as modern production revolvers go. jmho. The blued KC's are much scarcer than the stainless, but not rare by no means.
