    Salams everyone,

    I'm not a big fan of revolvers but there was 'one' revolver that I always wanted to have, The Colt King Cobra. I test fired a family member's when I was around 10 and still remember thinking "I want that".

    I had been looking for one for a couple of years but it is next to impossible to find a new one or in like new condition. Colt stopped producing them more than a decade ago. Finally I was lucky enough to come across one and made sure I got it.

    It is in *Mint* condition, in stainless steel finish with a 4 inch barrel. (I would not have bought anything above 4'). The revolver itself it simply amazing, a treat to fire. The action is very smooth, the trigger crisp, sights excellent, accuracy excellent and the recoil is very manageable due to the slightly heavy weight. The grips are rubber, Houge like making it comfortable to hold and fire.

    The revolver fires both .357 magnums and .38 specials. Here are some pictures.











    In the picture above are four different kinds of .357 ammo. Starting from the left, CCI Blazer158 Grain JHP, Armscor 125 Grain FMJ, Federal 180 Grain JHP, Master 158 Grain Semi Wadcutter.

    Very beautiful Mashallah, looks mean n manly. Photography is excellent aswell.
    Did you take these pictures after firing session? as cylender face looks very clean, what did you clean it with ? if photos are taken after the range session.

    Price? if its not a problem.
    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    abbas bhai excellent photography. this piece of beauty deserves this kind of presentation. abbas bhai, as always, was kind enough to give me a chance to shoot this splendid revolver and trust me it's a master piece. and the bang it makes would blow out the brains of someone who isn't wearing ear muffs. the rounds look very lethal.

    Lolz because till yesterday there was no project. I woke up today morning, borrowed a digital camera and took a couple of pictures. The whole exercise of taking the pictures, resizing and posting them took about an hour. When an object is beautiful the pictures come out nice ;)

    @Denovo87 Thank you. The pictures were taken after the range session cleaning. I use Hoppes No 9 Powder solvent for cleaning and the same oil (Hoppes 9) for lubrication.

    Beautiful Revolver Abbas Bhai
    N very beautifully photographed :)
    Some parents say it is toy guns that make boys warlike. But give a boy a rubber duck and he will seize its neck like the butt of a pistol and shout \"Bang!\"
