I consider the Colt Cobra to be one of the ultimate snubnose revolvers available. It weighs 15 oz, just a tad more than the S&W airweights, but holds one more round. I've always liked the trigger of Colts better than that of the S&W.
This fine handgun hasn't been made since the early 1980's. When I was a young officer, it was the first off-duty carry weapon I purchased. Several years later, I had the chance to trade a 13 shot .380 Beretta model 84 for another fine specimen exactly like the first one I bought new. I think I'm covered for the remainder of my days as far as Cobras go.
This pistol is an exact duplicate of the heavier Detective Special, another Colt mainstay that hasn't been made for years. Excellent used examples of both the Cobra and the Detective Special can be had used from about $500 to $700, so they are a bargain as far as used Colt revolvers are concerned. Pythons and Diamondbacks are selling for above $1200 used, and often more.
The Cobra gets a five star recommendation from El Fisho.
