    Colt Cobra

    Brought this Colt Cobra .38 Special home yesterday. It was made in 1963 and is in mint condition. No blemishes, faint turn line on the cylinder, no holster wear. Maybe it's been fired 6 times, but no more than that, I think.

    The shop threw in a freebie, a box of Federal 158 grain SWC loads, standard pressure. No +P ammo for this baby!

    Haven't shot it yet, but I will. Have to do a complete tear down and lube job first.

    Colt Cobras of comparable condition are going for $650.00 + on Gunbroker, I got this one for $425.00.

    I recently saw a not-so-nice Cobra in a pawn shop for $375. The snub nose pocket revolvers, in used condition, seem to be coming down, or rather, not escalating in price in deference to the autoloaders.

    But, in good shape, as yours seems to be, they are becoming fairly collectible items.

    Nice find.

    Wow! Now I'll have to spend $225 in gas, driving around trying to find one.
    Again, great find.

    Aggghh!

    I've got a freind who showed me her father's Colt Cobra earlier this week. I think the father bought it used in the late '60's for self defense, and never shot it.

    I'm trying to figure out a way I can con the freind out of it. She shot it last weekend and didn't care for the recoil. Now if I can just convince her that her daddy really doesn't need it anymore ...

    Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
