  1. Colt Revolvers
    I recently acquired a 1989 Colt King Cobra with an 8" barrel in the standard factory stainless steel finish (not bright). It's gorgeous except a previous owner buggered up the area around two screw heads when their screwdriver slipped out and gouged the surface. No, I don't want advice on...

    Hello all! I'm sure that many of us have read Colt's and various magazines' lists of design improvements built into the 2020 Colt Python. This post is about design improvements that have NOT been noted. Colt's current double-action revolver "stable" or "den", (depending on an equestrian view...

    I am new to the Colt Forum and collecting. I having difficulty confirming if these are the correct grips for my 1988 King Cobra. Also, note the finish is matte on the back of the grips as compared to the gloss on the sides. Any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance Dan

    Good day all! At my place of business, we offer custom trigger and action work, accuracy tuning, and repair service on S&W, DW, and Colt brands of revolvers (along with repair of the Woodsman series). Now that we've had a significant number of the NEW (2017 and later) Colt double-action...

    I have more than 1 Colt revolver from 1960 or earlier. None newer. I also have a S&W Model 66-4 from the 1990s that is one of my favorite firearms. Is there a chance that I might be disappointed by a new 3” King Cobra? I value tight lockup and good trigger pull, both double and single...

    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.

    I came to the forum to get some help from people who know Colts. I have a King Cobra that I forgot I had and need some information on. A 4" SST, with the hard blue case and very little ware. I bought it used years ago, test fired it, cleaned and put it away. The SN is VK6969 and I was wanting to...

    Does anyone know the Colt part number for the crane lock spring and detent. I was cleaning one of my KC's and the one dog ran under the stool at my work bench and the other one chased. The next thing you knowthose two little parts are missing in action. I know they are hard to find but I...

    rebuilt this king cobra from a frame found in a dump,fires fine. had to drill out the crane lock screw as it was rusted in. I did not drill to the threads as i know that is a big no-no, what i cannot find information on is the size of the tap i need to 'rethread' so i can insert the 3 necessary...
  12. Colt Revolvers
    Just wondering what the general consensus was between a 4in anaconda and 6in king cobra. I generally buy (higher) grade shooters so I can still enjoy them time to time. I also like to have the guns increase in value faster than inflation :) Although, I would likely never sell... unless i needed...

    I had a weak moment this past weekend and purchased a King Cobra, and am concerned that I may have paid too much (buyers remorse?). It is 4" Stainless, all original in almost perfect condition, no box or papers. I am at least the 3rd owner and the previous owner never fired it, but wasn't sure...

    I was wondering if anyone else has experiecnced this issue... i have been a long time colt owner. Recently, i noticed 2 cracks in the barrel, one at 12 and the other at 3, of my Colt 357 King Cobra Enhanced, w/ a 6" stainless barrel. I called COLT and they refused to honor their "lifetime...
