Maybe they plan to bring back the Python?Wish they'd put adjustable sights on it and give it a longer barrel...maybe one day.
The real key to the royal blue finish was to polish everything to a mirror finish before the bluing process. If you had roll marks or sharp corners you couldn't use standard buffs or wheels. Old photos showed wooden cored wheels with leather straps around them as the polishing tool. this was from a time when the result was more important than the time it took to get there. The US has lost that ability as a society. We are a consumer based economy whereas in the past we were a manufacturing based one. The Colt Custom shop could become that again producing limited numbers that would sell for astronomical prices and people would still buy them. Eventually I'll get either an older project gun or build my own steel gun and get to the point where I can come close to replicating the royal blue finish. If I as a single person can do it, surely Colt with intimate knowledge of the process could do it.Interested and a half!
Then it wouldn't be a Cobra.Wish they'd put adjustable sights on it and give it a longer barrel...maybe one day.
My old Colt King Cobra came with an Adjustable Rear Sight, as did my MkV Trooper.Then it wouldn't be a Cobra.
Sounds like what you want is for them to resurrect the Trooper.
You're not alone.
