    King Cobra Target with a proper target-length barrel

    I'm a fan of the new King Cobra Target from Colt, but it only has a 4.25" barrel. For a proper "target" revolver, it should have a 5"-5.5" barrel (I think 6" would be too long for this frame size). Even with the longer barrel, it would probably come in below or right at the weight of the new 4.25" Python that everyone is after and only 0.25"-0.5" longer in overall length.

    What does everyone think?

    I want an 8-inch barrel as found on past target Colt revolvers, such as Pythons, Anacondas and King Cobras.

    If Colt continues giving the people what they want, I'm sure the revenues will support expanding to the 8-inch.

    I think that the six inch Diamondback is a fine looking revolver, so I'm not sure why Colt couldn't make a new King Cobra with at least another inch on the barrel.
