    Well, here are a cpl of mine. The New Frontier .22/.22 Mag is a recent acquisition...didn't get a great deal on it but still below gunbroker prices. It's fun, but not as accurate as the several Ruger Single Sixes we've owned over the years.

    The 2nd is a Diamondback .22. Really a nice handgun with a good SA trigger, but the DA mode has the stacking feel so evident with Colt DA revolvers. Accuracy is ok with selected .22's, but not in the same league as my Smith M-18. I'll readily admit however that the DB's lighter weight is very nice...sort of half way between a J & K frame Smith. The pic shows it with a Smith M-18.
    Regards, Rod

    It's interesting that you got a Cobra with checkered walnut grips absent the lil silver medallion. Does anybody know about these stamped logo'd grips. Your cobra is the first I've seen like this.....? Cool though.

    The grips are “Coltwood” and are plastic not walnut. They were made post war thru the 60s.

    Upon further review, I'm liking this one more and more... sublime trigger in both DA and SA, accuracy off the charts, and just so soft-shootin' even with the fast-movers... Lotsa pros, one con (its weight).

    Love the Colt bluing, color case hardening, and those beautiful stag grips!

    Another fan of faux ivory grips, especially when paired up with a nice blued pistol!

    I'll bet Jimbo80 knows! When is a Colt not a Colt?

    Let me guess...when it's really just a rebadged Astra Model 2000 Cub?

    IIRC, after '68 they moved Junior production to Hartford, so those would be pretty legit Colts, IMO.

    Police Positive that was my wife's grandfather's gun, and a Series 80 that I carried on duty several years ago (and for some reason sold it)...

    I’ve got a couple of Colt 1911s. Both made in 1918, one in May and the other in December.

    Between those Pairs of 1918’s and 1917’s you have some great history there.

    The funny thing about all four of them is, I wasn’t even looking for them, just stumbled across them. Something about being in the right place at the right time.

    I can't begin to tell you how much the above has had to do with the success I've had in my life. Even more so with the amount of fun.

    Doh! I actually knew that (they even conveniently put it on the barrel!)...that's what happens when you attempt to read forums while triple-tasking at work while trying to look busy. :D

    Well, I can't fool any of you with the Astra/Colt licensing boondoggle. I knew Jimbo80 would have the answer. Now I am wondering if Colt licensed any more of it's products to foreign manufacturers, other than wartime emergency deals.

    They briefly had a joint production deal with CZ to build the Z40 pistol- long before CZ actually bought them out.

    I believe at least some of the Frontier Scout revolvers were made in Germany as well.
