Revolver Options: Colt King Cobra or S&W Model 19

The right revolver is a very personal choice. I’d say you need to hold and shoot both. I’ve never owned a Colt, but I’ve owned Smiths and Rugers. Surprisingly, the revolver I really fell in love with was a Taurus several years ago. Since then, I’ve purchased 5 more Taurus revolvers in various sizes and capacities, and sold my Smiths and Rugers. The Taurus guns, for me, just have the perfect balance and trigger pull. They may not be heirloom guns like the others but I’ve had zero quality issues. I think Rugers are the best constructed revolvers on the market but hey were always unbalanced for me, and with stiff trigger pulls. My point is, you need the gun that feels like an extension of YOUR arm, and it might be a totally different firearm that what any of us recommend

True, and not sure about balance… but trigger pull can be fine tuned.

Agreed with the trigger pull, but I shouldn’t have to pay to make a trigger work right on a $700 gun.

You would think not, but they are still manufactured and each individual is different. What one may think is a good trigger pull, another may find rough, to hard, creepy or raspy.

Even expensive firearms may need to be tuned to you.

The only revolver I have never had a trigger issue with is the Korth Mongoose. :grinning: But then I only shot it a little and had to give it back to my friend. :frowning:
