Rainy day today here in Ct. Went out and hit the gun shops. I came across an absolutely mint Colt Cobra with a brite nickel plated finish. If there had been a box of ammo through this little gem I'd be suprised. As this is the first nickel plated Cobra I've ever encountered I have two questions.
Does anyone know if Colt ever shipped Cobra's with a nickle finish from the factory or is this an aftermarket addition?
Any idea as to the value or what a fair price would be?
As always thanks in advance for the responses.
Take Care

Cobra feed back

In the late 60's to early 70's I had a good shooting Colt Cobra. Yes it was Nickel Plated from the factory. In those days STAINLESS was a dream, only.

Swamp Yankee, on the two online gun auction sites ( and, there have been two nickel Cobras that have sold in the last three months. One was new in box, a 2" with walnut medallion grips. It sold for $505. The other was as new, a 2" with pearl grips, and it sold for $550.

Hope this helps.

I have a NIB blue Cobra that hasn't even had the cylinder turned on it and it's a beauty.
