https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/12/daniel-zimmerman/new-colt-cobra-38-revolver/All above are fine ideas. Or...you could wait until the new (reintroduced) COLT revolvers hit the shelves! :image035:
The Ruger SP101 is a very nice five shooter. I like the 3" barrel but the 4.2" version with adjustable sights might better suit your intended use.
The popular Ruger GP100 is a sweet six shooter. Available in various barrel lengths also to suit one's particular application.
5lima, I've never thought of you as a "glass-half-empty" kinda' guy? :blink:....Just be prepared it may cost you a kidney...or more!
Not sure what you refer to as variants? Colt Defense? Colt Manufacturing or clones?5lima, I've never thought of you as a "glass-half-empty" kinda' guy? :blink:
Colt AR variants are fair values. Colt 1911 variants are fair values. Colt didn't DRIVE the snake gun prices up, Colt collectors & "The Walking Dead" did that. Colt is a business, and lately, seem to be paying MUCH more attention to the consumer market. That means they've gotta' build these "new" revolvers to a competitive price-point. (*I sure hope that I'm closer to correct than...YOU are! :yup
The vintage K Frame S&Ws that are still out there can be found at attractive prices or you might like a Ruger GP100. Cant go wrong there. It's hard to go wrong with Smith & Wesson or Ruger.So I'm searching into buying my first revolver , not for carry just for collection and some range fun! Any ideas and tips I'd appreciate it. Looking for a .357 thanks !!
