That said, I do think that the gun could be an ounce or two lighter. Every little bit helps.
I agree with you but when was the last time you saw any company built a steel framed revolver in .38 only?
I bet a year from now Colt will release a Magnum Cobra, with a slightly longer cylinder and maybe new sights, for $200 more.
