    New King Cobra going back

    I was happy to get the first new King Cobra offered for sale in my parts and didn't look it over very well before reaching for my wallet. Unfortunately, I noticed later that while in single action mode the trigger would kick forward under spring pressure immediately when pulled. Certainly seems like an unsafe condition so it went back to the LGS for a trip back to Colt. It seemed to operate properly in double action mode, but I never fired it.

    Thanks for the post - although I am sorry to hear of another Colt failure, I can hardly say its surprising. What a disappointment. Regards, Ron

    After a lengthy wait on hold with Colt, my LGS let me know my KC was processed for shipping yesterday. Should have it back shortly.

    I disagree . I've seen many positive Cobra and then KC posts made here since introduction with few failures reported .
    Condition Yellow

    I picked up the King Cobra yesterday, two months to the day I dropped it off to go back. Not sure what they did to it, but it now functions properly.
