    Colt Cobra 4 inch barrel how rare????

    I went to the gun-shop near my University with no cash and no real thought of buying anything. After talking a bit with the guy about some Colt Police Positive Specials he had (he had one he wont sell, a nice nickel plated .32) I asked to see if he had one in better condition and he said no. I looked and saw a very nice condition one behind him and asked about it and he said it was not a PPS. I thought the guy was blind so I asked to see it and he said it was a Colt Cobra with what looked like a 4 (Maybe five?) inch barrel. I was like yea right but then I was like . The gun looked real nice. It had a round butt with original checkered wood grips and it said Cobra .38 special. Here in Puerto Rico nobody other than competitors, collectors or more knowledgeable people like or buy revolvers and much less really old ones. Last time I bought a very nice condition S&W Model 19 pinned barrel and recessed chambers 4'' for three hundred and fifty dollars (I think thats a good price) and they have a TON of old Colt and Smiths. The gun was 250 no box. The gun might have been a 5 inch Venezuelan contract gun.

    How rare and how much would a 4 inch Colt Cobra in very nice condition bring in?

    Sorry for the long post.

    I don't know how "rare" they are but you don't see many come up for sale. The 5" is even harder to find. I just sold a 4" LNIB example here on the forum for $1550...

    Wow, made a preety penny huh? I guess I will snatch it up and hold on to it. They have some more Colts, one looked like a Viper, one looked like a Magnum Carry and one was a very abused Border Patrol (2nd issue) plus some Dick specials and PPS and maybe some Official police too. I will probably shoot it though.

    BTW nice picture Plissken.

    Probably around the same price I'd guess (250-300). Granted I THINK Kt was a Magnum Carry since it looked like the Colt Dick special with an underlug but it was way too chunky to be a standard. 38.
    I'm not a huge fan of the Magnum Carry as a shooter but I think they bring in a preety pennie now a days.
