    Don’t know SAA, I have no interest in them, but I do own three of the new DA Colts...a 38+P 2017 Cobra, a 2018 38+P DAO Night Cobra and earlier this year, I picked up a 357 Magnum 2019 Colt King Cobra with 3” barrel. And I plan to add the 4” King Cobra Target as soon as I run one down here. These are sweet shooters.

    I have no issues with the finish. It’s functional, does its job. These are working guns meant for carry and use. Not range toys or BBQ guns.

    The actions on all three are better than the standard production out of the box S&W’s, Ruger’s, or Charters. Not the least bit gritty, very very smooth. To get equivalents would need a Match Champion or a Smith PC SSR. Around 8 1/4 lb DA, 2-3 lb SA triggers. Clean break on pull through.

    Well...went to the LGS with my friend to look over the new Ruger Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor that he ordered, and lo & behold...in the showcase sat a shiny new Colt King Cobra Target Model, ready to strike.

    Man, I heard the Velcro tear loose from my hip pocket and my wallet flopped down on the counter on its own accord and before I knew what was happening, I was standing in front of the store computer filling out the all too familiar ATF form. Still in a daze...I went home and drowned my delight/sorrow in Bourbon.

    So now another new snake has slithered into the snake den...

    Though the price for one here is a little too high for me right now I was pretty impressed with the one I handled in the gun store.

    Congrats on the new Colt acquisition! Haven't seen one yet around here. Sort of reminds me of another Colt revolver I use to have, a Trooper Mk.V.

    Thanks. It’s been on my “get” list since they came out in, I believe, September. Yes, it does, but in a smaller, lighter package. I took him out in the woods yesterday and got ‘em dirty. I will say that it does feel a bit snappy with 158 grain JSP magnums, and I will put the rubber grips on it for shooting. It is accurate with Federal loads. The wood ones look great (as in BBQ gun), but my old hands get rough handled without some give.
