Just curious to hear if any of you have ever seen or maybe even have, a Colt Combat Cobra .357 mag limited edition pistol.
Colt only manufactured 1000 of these pistols and they are fairly hard to come by. I have only ever seen one in my life and can't seem to locate any info. anywhere on these pistols except from Colt themselves. Any idea on what the value on one of these is up to these days?
Input is appreciated.

According to the latest issue of the Blue Book:
.357 Mag. Cal., 2½” barrel, special edition for Lew Horton with CC prefix and stainless steel construction.
Value in 100%: $575
No picture though...

Sorry.......I don't have a pic.
But, here's what it looks like:
2 1/2 inch barrel
caramel colored wood grips with Colt emblem on each side
Colt horse stamped under the cylinder release
6 shot revolver
Combat Cobra stamped into the left side of the barrel and .357 magnum cartridge, Colt blah blah blah stamped into the right side of the barrel.
quite heavy, but I have never weighed it. (it would make a good club, that's for sure.)
a very good looking pistol.
I bought it brand new a number of years ago and have a Colt historical letter on it directly from Colt (which I asked them for and was free at the time. now they are big bucks). It's still in the original packaging with all the papers cause of the limited edition status. I've never shot it and believe me, that's taken some real discipline. I have #743 of the 1000. I get it out every now and again to admire it and keep it clean. I just might break down and shoot it someday before I die. I can just tell it would be great.
I don't have access to a blue book and this gun is NEVER is any gun trader or shooter's bible type books.
I was curious to see if any of you guys out there have one or have ever seen one. Also, since I hadn't checked the $$ lately, to find out what the value is now.

What? They made 1,000 and Tamara hasn't shown us pictures of her three consecutive serial number set? :p
Here's one I found on auctionarms. It sold in January and went for $650.
