Talking Brand New Old School

Got myself a new Colt King Cobra for Christmas. Pretty sweet. Took her out today for a shakedown. 8lb double action pull. Nice balance. Great grips. Sometimes ya just want a wheel gun.

Sweet! Nice 4”, I’ve had a 6” since they were new. (Wow, that’s been a long time ago)

Sweet! As nice as they are to the hand, S&W J-frames are literally a round shy & the Cobra is a great little belly gun. Nice that you still have it.

@Utah Bob: How's the smoothness of that King Cobra's pull? I'd worried on their new Pythons that they'd lost the expertise to do a decent trigger - without the stacking - but the reviews seem to suggest that they're able to do one continuous DA pull and the work is pretty decent.
