The remainder of the pull on both guns is heavy but consistent from shot to shot with a very smooth break.
Cocking the hammer on the new Cobra, however, results in a much lighter single-action trigger pull of 3.56 pounds.
The new model uses a transfer bar and a frame-mounted firing pin.
Not as slick-looking as an old Colt, but a great deal safer to carry with all six chambers filled.
The new gun uses a similar design, though not so elegantly executed, as it looks more like a swell than a taper. As much as I like the attractive optional factory ivory stocks on the original Cobra (as well as original Colt full-checkered walnut grips) the Cobra could have a bite when you pulled its nicely grooved trigger.
The original Cobras had their firing pins on the hammer.Colt's implementation doesn't return ANY of my Colt serial numbers.
