    I recently saw a Colt K/C snubby in one of the posts and haven't been able to sleep ever since.:mad: To the lucky owner, was that purchased like that or shortened by you? I've only seen just one other one called the Combat Cobra and that was a special edition. any info if those are still available?

    Colt has not made the King Cobra for years.
    The snubbie version is very tough to find in Blue or Stainless.
    Good luck with finding one.
    The Combat Cobra was a limited run of snubbie bright stainless King Cobras with wood grips/stocks.
    Nobody ever wants to part with them if you ever get a chance to even see one.
    Here's a pic of my Blue one.
    Good luck, you're gonna neeed it.

    I must say in spite of those Pachmayr grips, that King Cobra snubbie just looks right. I wouldn't mind having one myself. I wish Colt would bring some of these revolvers back.

    They are darn fine revolvers, and strong, too.

    It's a little easier to find a Colt Lawman snub. I see them regularly on gunbroker and auctionarms.

    The Lawman is a fixed sighted version of the Trooper MKIII and has the same frame size as the King Cobra. The Lawman can be found in blue or nickle. I've attached a pic of my nickle Lawman with Badger boot grips.

    Happy hunting!

    I've never seen one... cool rig.

    I passed on a near new 4 inch stainless King a while back... kicking myself for it.

    Thanks Gunkwazy! At least now I can look at yours every night before I go to bed and pray one crosses my path. I tell you, I have a 4 inch K/C and I just love that thing to death. I would love to get my paws on one of 'em snubbies.

    Am I ranting?:eek: Apologize Gents, couldn't control myself.

    The sad thing is, that darn gun feels just great in the hand.
    Well, that's not the sad part. The sad part is I bought it unfired and don't want to be the one to break the seal.:(

    Don't worry, there's plenty of snubbie Colt's out there.
    One will turn up eventually. I just hope it has a nice price tag for you.
    Good luck on the hunt.

    When Colt first discontinued all of their D-Frame revolvers everyone thought they were crazy.

    A few years later Colt's came to their senses and started producing snub revolvers again. They even showed great inspiration and debuted some new models. Everyone thought they were genuises.

    Unfortunately they once again succumbed to Jergen's Mynestenia™ and abandonded almost all handguns.
    Now everyone knows they are crazy.
