    Hello, new to the forum and looking for some help here. I'll try to include all the information I can think of. I took my king cobra to the range on Tuesday, March 3rd for the first time in a few years. I had cleaned it and put it away, but pulled it out every now and again to admire it. I've...
  4. Colt Revolvers
    I have never had any revolvers with such tight barrel to cylinder gaps before. The Cobra measures .002" and the King Cobra measures .0015". Are all of them this way, or did I just get lucky? Actually I am concerned that .0015" might be too tight and will bind up with fouling.

    Hi, I inherited my fathers Colt Police Positive, it had been stored away for over 30 years and recently I decided to clean it up, get some ammo and head to a firing range. Fires great, bit my hand the first time. Using it is a challenge to me, I have a small hand. But I fell in love with the...

  8. Colt Revolvers
    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...

    I'm new to this forum and am a Colt owner just getting into (want to) Colt wheel guns. I own a couple of 1911's and a Colt AR. On my wish list is a shrouded Colt Cobra or Agent in .38S. I'm checking out Gunbroker but do have concerns purchasing there (gotta fondle it). :) I shot wheel guns as a...
  12. Colt Revolvers
    About two years ago I read a magazine article about the gun (Colt Cobra) that Jack Ruby used to shoot Lee Harvey Oswald. It might have been "Guns & Ammo," but I'm not sure. Does anyone know the article whereof I speak? Any help would be profoundly appreciated. Thank you very much.
  13. Colt Revolvers
    I recently purchased what was supposed to be a Colt Viper. The serial number is 98649m and this is what the Colt Website says about it..."1977 Cobra Model/AirCrewMan/Courier/Agent & Viper "LW""Suffix is Found Below Serial Stamp"...This doesn't tell me a lot unfortunately. The year appears to...

    I joined this forum today because I've recently decided to purchase a Colt Cobra in 38 Special and not having been a wheel guy I can use all the friendly advice available. Before I retired my carry was an H&K P7, a slim IWB tack driver by most folks standards but today that gun is too large for...

    Do you recall (or, better yet, have a .jpg of) an ad that Colt ran for a long time in police journals in the late fifties and early sixties? I now realize that the campaign was in response to the inroads on snubby sales to S&W's Chief's Special as it emphasized the "advantage" of six rounds...
  19. Colt Revolvers
    Last year, I bought a '55 Cobra which I dearly love. (Just the revolver, no box or papers.) It's ~=/> 95% (absolutely minimum wear {I would think a desk drawer/nightstand revolver}. Not only clean and beautiful, but bank-vault tight, and shoots like a dream. i've always had an affinity for Colts...
  20. Colt Revolvers
    Thanks in advance for any advice on this question. I'm looking at a Cobra in 38 special w/a shrouded ejector rod. It seems to be in excellent - possibly fired very little - condition. It locks up well, and as far as I can tell each cylinder lines up nicely in full lock up. But, in one cylinder...
