Colt last weekend in Houston announced a new model of the King Cobra, the all-stainless 10-shot King Cobra Target .22 LR.
While the current King Cobra series, reincarnated in 2019, hit the market as a 6-Shot .357 Magnum big brother of the new line of Cobra wheel guns, the new King Cobra Target is a return to the company offering double-action rimfire revolvers. Not the first rimfire "snake" gun-- Colt marketed the original circa 1950s first issue Cobra in .22LR and made a .22LR Diamondback into the early 1990s-- the new Baby Snake fills a hole the company had in its catalog, and by extension is a first for CZ as well.
"We are very excited to debut this new baby snake to our customers at NRA Annual Meetings," said Justin Baldini, VP of Product Strategy, Colt CZ-USA. "Shooting .22 LR is such an important part of shooting sports. It's where we come to learn as a beginner; and where we return as seasoned shooters to cost-effectively enjoy more time at the range. We're confident that new and old Colt fans will love what we've done with the new King Cobra 22 LR."
