Here's one I liberated from a store shelf of Tauri.
I don't know if this little Cobra has ever been shot, very clean, no residue, blast shield and forcing cone/topstrap are pristine.
This gun dates ti 1954-1955 per proofhouse, but I think the grips are from a later gun. Any input on the grip question is welcome.
Thanks,
Mike

Nice looking Cobra. Unfortunately, those aren't the original grips. From 1950 to circa '54 they came with plastic Coltwood grips, thereafter they were supplied with checkered walnut stocks of the same pattern. They aren't that difficult to come by. Finding a set that fits well, however, is a whole 'nother story.

Thanks, All,
I figured those were later grips. I think the gun is so slick, otherwise, I am not complaining!

I like the fuller grips as well. They do feel better in the hand and help in shooting.
