    I got my Cobra for cheap, and here's why:

    It has threading on the inside of the barrel, taking up about one inch from the muzzle back, so it's got very little intact rifling. It has a 2'' barrel, BTW. The threading throws the bullets all over the place past 7 yards. It's OK for point-blank defense, but I want a more functional firearm.

    How difficult is it to replace the barrel on a Cobra? Is it even possible?

    BTW, the dealer told me it was used as a movie prop or something, and was fitted with a fake suppressor. Makes about as much sense as any other reason to thread the inside of a barrel. :uhoh:

    Go to http://www.gunpartscorp.com/ and look up the Colt Cobra. If its a later model with the shrouded barrel or an earlier one with the plain barrel they seem to have some in stock for around $70.

    You need to have a gunsmith install the barrel as they need the right tools to avoid damaging the frame.

    Another option would be to talk directly with Colt and see if they don't have the part and what they'd charge to replace the barrel.

    Colt will no longer do barrel work on the aluminum framed Colt's due to a tendency for the frame to crack.

    If you have it re-barreled, pick your gunsmith VERY VERY carefully.
    I recommend Cylinder & Slide Shop.

    LOL quite the opposite. I laugh every time I see a suppressed revolver in a movie.

    Where are they located?

    Here:

    C&S is a world class custom shop, so prices will be a higher, and turnaround may be slower, but the quality of work is absolutely top of the line.
