Our Assessment: Colt introduced the King Cobra in 1986 as an upgraded version of the venerable Trooper with a full rib and lug and stainless steel construction. With its 4? barrel and adjustable sights, this revolver has a nice balance between size and precision, and of course it was built with Colt quality. This revolver is in Fine-Excellent condition with about 97% of its stainless finish and little sign of use. Please see our photos and good luck!
