Didn't Colt produce a twenty two long rifle caliber revolver based on the Cobra or Positive frame? How many did they produce? Is there a serial number range?? Thanks...

Over the years Colt made a number of guns in .22LR that were based on the "D" frame.

Before the war, they made the Banker's Special and Police Positive Target in .22.

After the war they offered the Cobra 1st issue and the Diamondback.

Available production numbers usually don't list actual production by caliber.

The first issue Cobra was made in .22, but that chambering was dropped when the 2nd issue came out in '72. The .22's were in the same serial number range as the centerfires. While I have never seen specific production figures on the rimfire Cobras, I'd guess there weren't many. Of course, the Diamondback is also a D-frame and much more common in the rimfire caliber.
