    I've been looking for a nice little Cobra keep all the auto pistols in the safe in line. Ran across this one yesterday. Don't care for the grips, but that's easily remedied.

    I'm not sure she's even been shot. Of course, the photo shows all kinds of grease that I didn't see when I had a lint-free cloth handy.

    Looks like it's in really nice shape.


    There's something about a Colt revolver. I hope you enjoy it.

    Vey nice, but you're right; those grips have got to go. They are great for extended shooting sessions, but from a collectors viewpoint, they need to replaced.

    Just shy of five bills. I've seen plenty of beat up old 1st issue Cobra's going for much more. I thought it was a great deal.

    Dear Matt,

    I got out to shoot mine for the first time Saturday. It's as great to shoot as it is to carry. I hope you enjoy yours just as much.

    Very nice gun! I had the Agent a few years back and keep kicking myself for ever letting it go.

    Remember your snap caps if you dry fire! It's a beauty.

    (Quoted frrom above; I don't know how to work the quote feature here.)


    The Cobra is basically a concealed carry gun. Those grips are ludicrous on it.
    Colt's older service grips and a Tyler adaptor or Pachmayr's Presentation Compac grip will be a much better idea.

    Congratulations on the new gun!

    I agree wholeheartedly. I can hardly look at the sad thing with all that rubber. I'm thinking of ordering up a pair of Eagle Grips checkered rosewood jobbies. The one that look very similar to the original wood grips that you see on most of these pistols. Anyone have experience with those grips? Their rosewood grips for the little 1903 and 1908 Colt are pretty nice.

    I put a set of Eagle grips on this one. The Detective Special is the same as the Cobra, except its all steel. I think they're awesome. I love how they feel. They fill my hand perfectly, yet don't add all sorts of bulk.


    I got these used. I have not idea if he's still making them for the Colt D-frame. You might want to call and ask, and send him the picture if it's what you're interested in.

    I have the set of slim J Scott's you see here on my Cobra now.

    Another option for you is to get something with this profile and marry it up with a Tyler T grip. But those are tough to find these days.

    Every so often, you happen to be in the right place and time! Looks like you were there! Cool. Had a friend that bought one of those years ago. One of the few he will not part with. I know...I've tried. :D
