New for 2017: Colt returns to snake guns with a new Cobra

Written by

Wow! New for 2017 Colt has returned to making it's famed "snake guns" - their snake named revolvers. In this case the first one is the Cobra. 

A 6 shot small framed snub, hopefully without an internal lock (IL)? I'm onboard. 

Colt has made some improvements in modernizing the revolver and has said that it can be scaled up. Hopefully this means that other snakes will follow. Notwithstanding 'Walking Dead" fans -- How about a Python? It would be amazing if they could return to the quality and fit and finish of yester-year. 

I know that there will be detractors (as already shown on Colt's FB post). Luckily, J-frames exist. The SP101 exists. The Kimber K6s will exist. These are all great options, however, Colt know how to do some things and I am excited to see what they do with something that they previously mastered. 

Here is a press review from Colt's release event:
