Yeah I knew that was a hell of a deal. I've seen these at gun shows for $400 or more in worse condition.
The last time I saw a Cobra for sale they wanted $500 for that thing! I was like "No way!"
I bet it shoots great with 158 grain loads. I can see now why so many people say Colt made the best snubnose revolvers. I can't figure out how they fit 6 rounds in this thing, and the overall balance and feel is superior. The sights are amazing. I've always found fixed sights a little awkward to use but not these.
