    No, I didn't fail the check, but the wife and I decided it just wasn't the right time.

    It's in great shape, a little bit of blistering on the cylinder, but I'd call the rest of it better than 90%. Great bore, if a bit dirty. Since I didn't put it on layaway, I figured I'd let you folks know. If anyone is interested, it's $349. PM me if you want the contact info.

    By blistering do you mean residue on the front of the cylinder?

    Sounds like a great deal on a very concealable 6-shot revolver. I've seen one similar in a Fort Worth gun shop for $490.

    It's actually on one of the flutes of the cylinder - maybe 1/8"x1/4", a little tiny bit of rust starting. It would probably come right off with 0000 steel wool and some oil.

    Colt Cobra....

    Great gun, I love mine. I believe it was made in mid 70's. I paid $500 in excellent condition. Went with the Colt over the newer S&W revolvers (442, etc.).

    Heads Up - A Snake!

    Watch for the forthcoming announcement on this channel of my MINT, manufactured in 1963, Colt Cobra. (Still in layaway).

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Sounds like spouse abuse to me!

    The Cobra is a great handgun, as is its all-steel brother, the Detective Special. Here's the one I got my young bride for her birthday:
