Just thought I'd go ahead and add on my Star rating.
Bought my 4" Stainless King Cobra in 88 (traded off the old S&W 19 4"). Aside from the added weight(which contributes to greater control), it is a far finer gun than the S&W 19! It serves as a great trail, camp or home-defense gun, capable of full-power loads but really performs with moderate loads. It's low-maintenance, rugged, dependable & very accurate. Would prefer the non-"Gripper" Pachmayr "Presentation" grip on those cold days with a gloved hand and a protective crown on the muzzle with a white sight! A note, it's better fit to a large hand. Certainly it's not the old Python but I've read that the more modern springs internally may be superior. Not as accurate as my Dan Wesson on the target range but great to pack around for defense or plinking. 25 Yrs. of casual use and I still love it -- Won't give it up!! It's a COLT after-all!!
Bought mine used at a Las Vegas firearms show. Pristine condition polished stainless steel. Very well built pistol mine has a 4" barrel with standard red ramp front sight and adjustable black rear notch. Long smooth DA trigger with clean break (just a bit of creep, roughness) at the point where the hammer falls. The SA pull is exactly 3 lbs and it breaks like glass. I have a Python and the SA pull is equal in smoothness to that. The only gripe I had/have is the POS grips supplied mine came apart shortly after my purchase. Replace with a Hogue Monogrip and everything was now perfect. 25 yards off the bench with Federal JHP 158grn I can easily hold a 3" group cylinder after cylinder. .38 match I can usually get under 2" at 25 yards though they shoot lower on the target. I don't mind the cylinder release it is easy to use and positive, cylinder fully shrouds the caseheads and the underlug really helps balance. Ejections rod will completely extract a .357 case so fast reloading can per don...[Read More]
I own a sw 686 plus 4" and a colt King Cobra 4" both stainless. I will never sell either one. The KC is enhanced drilled and tapped. The trigger is unbelievable. The KC is a great 357. I bought the KC in 1999 for $455.00 brand new in box. And the sw 686 in 99 for $520.00 brand new in box. Guess which one is worth more now as of 11-22-2012? THE COLT KING COBRA (SWEET).
