guitslo will become famous soon enough
I'm curious about it too. I've asked when ever I've been in gun shops, but no one has one yet, and most didn't even know it was making a comeback. I've got one from the early 50s that is one of my main CCW. It was my backup when I was LEO. Great old shooter. I would like to make a hands on comparison with a new one.

I haven't either but I will say if it's anything like the old ones it will be a great gun.

At 25 oz unloaded in 38 Spl I'm not all that psyched about it. Now the new Kimber K6S a 6 shot 357 mag at 23 oz grabs my interest.

I handled one at the SHOT SHOW. It really felt nice and has a nice trigger. What you would expect from a Colt. The guy said look for them around mid year.

In the March edition of American Rifleman O'Keefe does a brief write up about it. Information is still information.

Can't the old Cobra's still be had for somewhat reasonable prices? I'd love for Colt to make a big comeback with their old DA revolver line-up, but not in S&W style... i.e., the new guns have to be a better value than the old ones.

I have seen and tangled one at my LGS. feels real close to my dads old air weight model he had many years ago. I still have that one and it is sitting in my safe and of course would never part with it. .

Felt good nice balance heavier than the old model I have, but, I am going to wait until it comes out in a blued version, never have been fond of stainless look.

If looks could kill, the Kimber K6S would be the one. But at $900.00 it isn't anything I think I'll have soon although I am looking at wheel guns for carry.
