    Bobbing hammer on colt cobra?

    I'm thinking of having my gunsmith bob the hammer on my colt cobra,but was wondering is there a way to bob the hammer and still be able to thumb cock it for single action shooting? I basically want it so its snag proof for pocket carry,but maybe a little rounded stub to thumb cock the hammer with. Thanks for any help with this guys.

    I bobbed a S&W M36 and can raise hammer far enough with trigger to grab it with my thumb. But I sort of wish I hadn't because it devalued the pistol and replacement hammers are hard to find.

    I wouldn't do it.
    Much easier to develop 'muscle memory' in placing your thumb on top of the hammer with each draw...

    Are you guys saying its not worth it to bob the hammer on my cobra? I know I'll never sell this gun so I'm not concerned with resale value being hurt,but is there any other reason you would not bob the hammer on this gun?

    Is your Colt .38 special or .32 Colt. 2" or 3" barrel?
    Pre- 1972 or after?

    While many Leo's have had their hammers bobbed for safety, I probably would not do it to yours. This Snubby is out of production. That adds value to a revolver that is already already considered a collectible. I would just keep it in its original condition.
