At the 2019 SHOT Show Range Media Day, Colt had the new King Cobra in .357 Mag. on hand. American Rifleman Editor-in-Chief Mark Keefe had the opportunity to shoot the revolver and learn more about it with Colt pro shooter Mark RedlWatch the video above.

A Colt six-shot revolver in .357 Mag. is an exciting prospect that Colt fans clamored for.

"Two years ago we went back into the revolver business with the Cobra .38 Special, a nice carry gun," says Redl. "Immediately, our customers were asking for a version in .357 Mag. We listened, it took us a while because we developed it and wanted to make it right."

The double-action King Cobra has a lot of features the Cobra did, including the opened up trigger guard, interchangeable front sight and the same trigger mechanism as the Cobra.

According to Redl, the new revolver is extremely durable.

"We put thousands of rounds through these [during testing], and I'll tell yeathey are a tank."

And, this is just the beginning of the new King Cobra revolver family.

"We'll produce a family of these just like we did with the Cobra," added Redl. "This is the first one because this is a gun you can take the range and shoot all day long, and also use as a carry gun."
