I love 3" K frames as much as anyone alive but they would have to prove to me that the quality is way higher than the new Cobra for me to buy one new. I'm sure that when they first hit the market, people will be paying way more than MSRP for them and all of a sudden production will catch up and prices will fall way down. At least that is what happened to the Cobra. I'm not saying the Cobra was a bad gun by any means, it just wasn't something special in my opinion. I think my expectations were a little high. I was looking for something in the Old Python, Trooper or Detective Special quality and in todays market you could never compete building one like that. It would probably have to retail for twice as much.
