What is the difference between a Colt Python and a Colt King Cobra?
Both are .357 magnums, both have either blued or stainless finish...I just can't tell.
My friend's gun store has had a King Cobra for sale for the past several months, but no takers. It's a stainless, 4", .357. Why isn't anyone jumping on this?
If it was a Python people would be fighting over it, but I can't tell the difference.
The very name "Colt" is legendary in the gun community. Even people otherwise ignorant of firearms have heard of or at least recognize the familiar shapes of the proven Model 1911 or the immortal "Peacemaker" (Single Action Army for you gun nuts out there).
The Posse owns only one Colt, the now-discontinued King Cobra.
Some time back on these pages we gave you the results of a test of three .357 Magnum double-action revolvers with four-inch barrels. However, our gun stores tell us that, because so many shooters don’t read Gun Tests, folks continually come in and ask which brand of .357 they ought to buy.
