Colt King Cobra Target Rimfire Revolver with 10-Shot Cylinder

new colt king cobra target 22 LR .22 LR revolver rimfire wheelgun

The 2023 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits opens on April 14th, just four days from now. There will be some interesting new guns on display that’s for sure. The vast majority of major American gunmakers will have displays at the big NRA Annual event.

At the NRA Annual Meetings last year (2022), Colt’s Manufacturing introduced an impressive new rimfire revolver — the King Cobra Target 22 LR. Colt states: “From competition to plinking and small game hunting, this baby Cobra does it all and packs 10-rounds of .22 LR in its cylinder”. The King Cobra Target 22 LR is available with 4.25-inch and 6-inch barrel lengths, both with 1:16″ RH rifling twist. MSRP is $999.00.

new colt king cobra target 22 LR .22 LR revolver rimfire wheelgun

The King Cobra Target 22 LR features USA-forged stainless steel construction. Designed and crafted for outstanding accuracy, new King Cobra Target 22 LR features a one-piece barrel/shroud with fiber optic front sight. The cylinder holds ten (10) rounds. The frame is fitted with an adjustable target rear sight and Hogue overmolded rubber grips.

This TFB Showtime episode examines the new .22 LR rimfire Colt King Cobra Target. The King Cobra Target 22 LR features a 10-shot cylinder, and the same adjustable target sights as the .357 Magnum version.

Last May, Justin Baldini, Colt’s VP of Product Strategy stated: “We are very excited to debut this new Baby Snake to our customers at NRA Annual Meetings. Shooting .22 LR is such an important part of shooting sports. It’s where we come to learn as a beginner; and where we return as seasoned shooters to cost-effectively enjoy more time at the range. We’re confident that new and old Colt fans will love what we’ve done with the new King Cobra 22 LR.”

All-American built, the King Cobra Target 22 LR was designed and made to be shot — a lot! It should deliver exceptional accuracy and good reliability. Expect to see these revolvers at formal and informal rimfire competitions at gun clubs around the nation.

Commentary: We applaud Colt for introducing this new .22 LR wheelgun. Rimfire revolvers are great. This Editor owns a Smith & Wesson Model 617 ten-shot rimfire revolver that has easily fired more rounds than all his other handguns combined. A .22 LR revolver is great for training and fun for plinking. Like the Model 617, this new Colt .22 LR wheelgun offers minimal recoil, great reliability, a nice sight radius, and affordable shooting. In addition, if you shoot single-action slow-fire, the trigger pull is light and crisp — better than the vast majority of semi-auto pistols. We think this new “Baby Snake” will be a great addition to any shooter’s collection.
