    I feel your pain. Looks like a really nice revolver but seems a bit overweight at 25 ounces. Waiting for the air weight version for EDC.

    I'm not snakebit, but I'm keeping my eyes open. I don't care for the Colt latch on the concealed carry type guns, but if they come out with a new trooper I'm getting in line. I have tried for a few years to get a trooper, and I'm hoping that it becomes possible to get a new one.

    I had a 2" Cobra back in the 70's somewhere.
    Nice little revolver and it concealed very well.

    I currently carry a Colt Cobra (do I have to call it a "classic Cobra now? Alloy Cobra?) more than any other gun. I will be very interested to get a chance to try one of these out. It almost sounds like it has a non-stacking DA trigger. Wonder if that's right? I wonder if the overall DA/SA trigger pulls will be as good as my 70s Cobra?

    It will be amazing if this leads to more snake guns. We spilled a fair bit of electronic ink in this forum not too long ago about how unlikely it was that we'd ever see another Python. I, for one, am ready and willing to be proven wrong.

    I've already made up my mind........I will have one of the new Cobras and very probably 2 of them. I saw a display of the lock work, side plate off; it is an updated design similar to the old "V" spring system. I like the old system but it did have it's short comings. There is a video of the new Cobra in action. DA trigger was stated as being 9+/- pounds, SA trigger was less than 3. I like that......

    I guess they didn't want to call it a "Detective Special" since for the most part detectives don't carry revolvers anymore. Does bring up the question of what they'd call an alloy version...dare I say "Agent"? Since they say it already has a smaller grip frame than the original I doubt there will ever be a true "Agent" version. "Agents" don't carry them anymore either. An alloy version might recycle another snake name. Like "Viper". Enough rampant Colt speculation.

    No doubt the name is part history, part marketing. Wonder why they put that little flat spot in the trigger guard? I'd like to know more details about it's mechanics.
