Colt successfully re-entered the double-action revolver market in 2017 with its .38 Spl. Cobra, followed by the Night Cobra in 2018. Now Colt has announced the all-new .357 Mag. King Cobra, which will be available this month through Colt stocking dealers.

The King Cobra features American stainless steel construction, a heavy-duty frame with a full-lug 3” barrel and a 6-round capacity. The King Cobra also features the same user-replaceable front sight and Linear Leaf spring trigger (LL2TM) as the rest of the Cobra family. MSRP is $899.

“Our customers started asking for a .357 version of our Cobra immediately after the release, and at that moment we knew we had to prioritize this great addition to the Cobra family,” said Justin Baldini, product director at Colt. “We couldn’t be more excited to add the power of .357 Magnum back into Colt’s double-action revolver lineup.”

The all-new King Cobra premieres at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nev., Jan. 21-25, 2019. Industry media professionals will get to experience the King Cobra for the first time at the “Industry Day at the Range” event that kicks off the show. Customers will have their first opportunity to see the King Cobra at the NRA Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pa., Feb. 2-10, 2019.
