Colt may be just testing the waters with their new Cobra. No one knows just yet exactly what else they might have in store. And rather than referring to the design as "cookie cutter", it's more like a "tried and true" design. And really, other than appearance, there aren't a whole lot of variations available in revolver design.
Don't see offering a revolver in three or four calibers tops is limiting. When all's said and done, how many different calibers does anyone really need
in a revolver. Even when they were in full production mode, Colt revolvers were never aimed at handgun hunters...I don't believe they ever contemplated making anything like a .454 Casull revolver or a .460 or whatever. They were always aimed more at law enforcement and self defense.
The self defense pistol and revolver market is huge
right now. Colt is coming back to claim its share of that market. I wish them lots of success.
