    Default Colt Cobra .38 Special +P: the SMALL DA/SA revolver Smith & Wesson is missing!!!!

    Looking through Smith's online site, there is not one DA/SA (exposed cockable hammer) gun offered by S&W that remotely competes with the Cobra in price, materials, features, finish, comfy rubber finger-notched Hogue grip, 6-shot capacity, compact size, low-profile/hi-viz sights, lightweight and good looks. New Smith DA/SA all-steel revolvers that can fire .38 Spc. are variously:

    -too expensive
    -too large/clunky, must buy a K frame or larger
    -too heavy
    -require one to purchase a .357 Mag. model
    -have a high snagging front sight
    -don't seem to be available in a small/J frame model

    The Cobra is the "chopped Govt. Model 45", the "Thompson Auto-Ordnance .45 ACP ZG-51 Pit Bull" of Thirty-Eight Specials, if you will! The concealable defense revolver with a big gun feel. I just hope it is as mechanically reliable as Smiths.The factory defect reviews connected with the new Python are troubling to me. I like the ability to cock the gun and fire SA.

    Here's my question: can even a new Colt Cobra .38 Special + P be beat? To me, after considering its price along with its virtues it seems tough to surpass if one wants something shiny and spanking new.

    Hostility? Pray tell me where the hostility is - how is it even preceived hostility?

    BTW, your post is just an opinion; nothing more.
