    Colt King Cobra NO ROLL MARKS

    I bought a brand new in the box King Cobra from a reputable dealer with gun and box matching serial numbers. When I opened the box I noticed that the barrel was NOT stamped with the customary "Colt MFG Hartford, CT USA" on the right side and it was NOT stamped with the customary "KING COBRA 357 MAGNUM" on the left side. IMG_0475.jpg Here is a picture of the left side. Does this hurt the value or does this make it rare with increased value?

    Thanks for your consideration!

    If true I would think it makes it very rare. Looking forward to listening in on this

    I believe by law a gun has to have the caliber clearly and accurately marked. That is some kind of factory mistake! Does it even have rifling in the barrel?

    Does it at least have the serial number matching the box?

    I imagine it would drive up the value of this particular gun if/when they cease production.

    But I'd second guess how well it was QC'd. I buy guns to carry and shoot rather than to let them sit and sell later on, so I'd call Colt

    Box serial number and gun serial number match. Barrel has rifling. Shipped from Colt with two other King Cobra's. As shown in picture, perfect match to the other King Cobra, just doesn't have the markings on the barrel.

    That sounds like an obvious factory mistake and I would definitely hang on to that one. IMO it will surely command a premium if you ever sell it at auction.
