About the Gun

Redesigned stainless steel variant introduced in 2017. Rated for +P loads. The new design is slightly larger than the original Cobra, including an enlarged trigger guard and over-molded rubber grip. The trigger is smooth faced and has less curve than the original serrated one. While the original Cobras had their firing pins on the hammer, the new model uses a transfer bar and a frame-mounted firing pin. Also features a redesigned leaf mainspring.

About the Cartridge

In 1974, SAAMI established standards for a .38 Special cartridge with a gunpowder load that generated a higher firing pressure than the standard cartridge. Designated with a +P suffix, this cartridge has a significant, but not huge, increase in performance over the standard .38 Special cartridge.
