New Colt

New Colt Cobra is coming out in January 2017. Steel frame, Priced at $699. Has a awful looking fiber optic sight. Collectors will go nuts for one. Will be on Gunbroker as rare an will sell for triple. Wondering who in making it for them, grips look like something off a Rock Island.

Was the old Cobra the alloy-framed one? IIRC, an alloy version of the Detective Special; or was that the Agent..?

Old Cobra was alloy with full sized grip. Agent was same with shortened grip.

Is it just me, the only thing I dislike about Colt revolvers is the cylinder release? I find the S&W release easier when your on the clock.

Cylinder release was a pain plus they were hard to work on an keep in time. S&W all the way!

Old timer Armorers use to time Colt revolvers by holding the barrels and whacking the butts on a hard surface.

I'm still scratching my head on this. Back in the day I was taking an advanced Firearm Instructor course at GLYNCO, Ga. A couple of the armorer's were talking about the Colt Official Police and how it got out of time and could be put back in time by grabbing it by the barrel and smacking it on a wooden table. I never tried it myself.
