    New Colt Cobra and King Cobra

    Curious to hear from anyone who has purchased or test fired one of the newer design Cobra revolvers.

    The ones I handled...not shot, at a couple of gun shops have had good triggers. Good for defensive work anyway.

    Reviews have been very positive but there have been a very few reports of some quality control issues here and there. They were mostly early on...maybe trying to get them together and shipped too quickly but that's just a guess.

    The most negative thing I can say about them is the rubber Hogue stocks...I don't like finger-groove grips and they don't fit my hand. The wood stocks on the Ultimate finish Cobra don't fit my hand either. Those are minor and aren't reflective of the revolvers themselves...Colt didn't ask me for my input on the subject...they're building them for the majority of potential buyers and not someone with my hand size.

    I’m holding off till the 2020 Python! Or 2022 or 2025 or 2030. Yes I know it’s wishful thinking.

    I'm quite happy with the "new" Cobra I purchased a couple of months ago. The trigger as you said is very good. The fiber optic front sight, something I wasn't too crazy about at first...well it just jumps out at me when shooting. Very easy for my old eyes to pick up. I'm sold on it now. I'm in the minority I suppose, but I like the Hogue grip. I haven't shot it a lot, but I've shot it enough to say I think it shoots pretty well. My HKS speedloaders for a K-frame Smith and Wesson work perfectly, and I was able to find an old Bianchi Accu-Mold holster in my bag of old holsters that fits just fine, so the Cobra has become my EDC.

    That's pretty high praise from a die-hard Smith and Wesson guy.

    I bought a Cobra a year ago. Have done no work on it, other than oiling. The trigger is smooth and needs no work. Colt hit a home run with this gun. Some don't like the rubber Hogue grips, but they are good enough for my gorilla paws. For speedloaders, the HKS DS is recommended. It's a good pocket gun, if you have big pockets.

    I recently picked up a Night Cobra. At this point, it's all been dry fire and I find the trigger to be excellent. One thing I didn't realize until I got home was with the factory bobbed hammer DAO setup, there's no way to thumb cock it to single action. The guts are true DAO. Fine with me, as that's the intent. I just figured it had the same DA/SA action as the others with a bobbed hammer. Nope. Also, you need to fully run the trigger - it's fairly simple to short stroke it.

    I have both the colt cobra and the new 4.25” King Cobra Target. Really like them both but prefer the Target. Great balance and trigger and wood stocks. Highly recommended. Added a few different stocks.
