I have a new Cobra that I'm very proud of. It's had almost 1000 rounds with no issues. One thing I have noticed though is timing. Just like any old Colt I've ever paid attention to, this one doesn't fully lock the cylinder when slow cocked. It does when the trigger is pulled all the way back though. I read a lot online that this is definitely a problem. I'm a bit concerned by the fact that if I just VERY lightly pull the trigger...just enough to disengage the sear it doesn't even lock into place then. I don't know that I could replicate that light of a pull while actually shooting though. The thing is I also read and hear that the part about slow cocking not locking the cylinder into place is common with most Colts. It's definitely been that way with any that I can remember looking at. I'm puzzled here. Mine is definitely dickered but not sure how much. I mean it shoots perfect and I can't imagine ever pulling it so light while actually shooting that it doesn't finish locking. Edit: Just wanted to add that it's certainly gotten at least somewhat better over time. I'm not sure if it's necessarily something that can "wear" itself into timing or not but it catches more often than it first did.
