About the Gun

The original Colt Cobra is one of the first aluminum framed lightweight revolvers produced. It was available in various calibers from .22 LR to .38 Special and in various barrel lengths from 2 inches to 5 inches. The most common and popular model is the 2-inch .38 Special model. The gun's finish is either anodized blue or nickel plated. The first issue has a skinny barrel and exposed ejector rod with skinny round-butt grips and the second issue has a full shroud barrel covering the ejector rod and heftier square-butt grips. The ejector rod is full length enabling complete removal of the spent cartridges when pushed.

About the Cartridge

The Stevens Arms Co. developed the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge from the .22 Long cartridge case developed 16 years earlier, with a 40 grain round nose bullet loaded to a higher velocity than the older 29 grain .22 Long bullet. Modern .22 Long Rifle High Velocity cartridges drive a 40 grain copper-plated bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1255 fps and muzzle energy of 140 ft-lbs from a rifle barrel. This rimfire cartridge has become the most popular sporting and target shooting cartridge in the world.
