Our Assessment: The Colt Agent is similar to the Cobra with a shorter grip frame. This is great for concealed carry as the frame won’t print quite so much. This example is in Excellent condition showing little sign of use and comes with a Colt hammer shroud, making it a nice gun for concealed carry. That said, its high condition will also make for a great addition to a revolver or Colt collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
