Colt Releases King Cobra Target Revolver

Colt continues to develop its re-imagined family of “snake guns” with the release of the King Cobra Target. Featuring a 4 ¼-inch barrel, an adjustable rear sight, an elevated fiber-optic front sight, and custom wood medallion grips, this revolver was engineered to adapt the powerful .357 Magnum King Cobra to the competitive range. The new King Cobra Target is available through the Colt dealer network. SRP: $999.

Forged from American stainless steel, the six-round, double–action revolver is the third model in the modern King Cobra series. Colt reintroduced the King Cobra .357 in January 2019, followed by the King Cobra Carry in May. Colt’s snake guns are popular for defense and target shooting. They are also popular with collectors.

"After releasing the King Cobra earlier this year, we received a flood of requests for a 4-inch model with adjustable sights," says Justin Baldini, Colt's marketing director. "Our customers are excited to bring their Colts to the range, and the King Cobra Target is engineered for accurate and enjoyable shooting. The longer barrel and custom wood grips also just look fantastic." (
