Revolver fans rejoice! Colt’s reintroduced Cobra .38 Special double-action six-shot revolver is ideal for shooters who prefer the reliability and simplicity of a wheel gun. The gun is +P capable and is designed to be the ultimate carry gun, thanks to a 2-inch barrel, a low-profile fiber-optic front sight and a Hogue overmolded rubber grip. The new rearward grip is designed to manage recoil for better shooting on the range and off. It comes with an LL2 trigger system and is built entirely of steel. It weighs 25 ounces. ($699; Colt.com)
It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of revolvers, semi-autos, classic remakes or improvements on existing pistols and revolvers, there was something for every handgunner at the 2017 SHOT Show, the largest firearms and hunting trade show in the world. Not only did manufacturers unveil a wide variety of new models and new configurations of old models, a handful of custom gun makers even introduced guns that are as beautiful as they are functional.
