Where are you going to get the grips? There aren't much available out there. The only wood grips I know of are the Altamont ones that come on the target version of the KC. Mine are slightly loose. Hogue doesn't make any. I called them and asked. I hope they make some. Also I haven't found any holsters yet. I guess its early for both.
I haven't had the ejector rod stick on me yet. I'm not sure if something is slightly modified in the new target or if it's a technique difference.
I'm getting accuracy that is around 3.5 inches with about 4 varieties of 38 special ammo. So far - unacceptable. That is 6 shots at 25 yards off of a solid rest. The barrel seems to lead up badly and easily. After a thorough cleaning, it put 4 shots out of 6 in less than an inch and the remaining 2 increased to a little more than two inches. I'm waiting on a new Lewis lead remover to get it squeaky clean to try again.
There is a lot to like about these new king cobras, but I have a laundry list of small changes I would make if I had anything to say about the manufacturing process.
Smoother bore if that proves to be a problem
Wider, flatter trigger
Better front sight blade
Remove the mold mark on the trigger
Better rampant colt symbol. It has some strange voids in it.
Otherwise, the finish is very nice. I've read that the frame (and cylinder?) are forged. While cleaning I noticed a small circle in each flute of the cylinder. I'm not sure what it's from. Makes me wonder how the cylinder was manufactured. The walls are very thin compared to my 686. As long as it holds up over time this is a plus to me. I really like the overall size of the gun.
Not sure it was worth 1k, but so far I'm still optimistic.
