To give you a straight answer, Colt has no plans right now (as far as we know) of introducing a new double action revolver.Does anyone know if Colt will ever resume the manufacture of their revolver line?
They are buying other products because there are no Colts being produced. S&W is selling lots of 617 revolvers, two reasons. People want a quality 22 revolver ,and they make them. Can't sell what you don't make. Here is another thought to ponder. If You make NEW KING COBRAS, guess what happens to the price of the used , overpriced ones? They drop. What happened to the mildew boxed Mustangs when the new version came out? Duh. Revolver prices have risen because of a lack of supply of quality new ones ,especially Colts. By the way have you seen the prices of those inferior action BOAs? Bet a new version in bright stainless for $1000 msrp ,hitting the shelves for $850 ,would sell.[/QUOTE]ASQUOTE=weagle99;504376]Why do so many people seem to think there is some huge demand for DA revolvers in the marketplace that isn't being met?From what I can observe, polymer semi-autos are the cash cow for most of the industry right now and that shows little signs of changing. Other than collectors (and maybe not even collectors), how many people really would want to by a $1000, heavy, reintroduced King Cobra with the cheaper Colt action capable of firing 6 rounds of .357?
Among collectors, yes and many times because the guns are discontinued.The demand is for old school quality double action revolvers. Not just double action revolvers.
