    Just lately purchased a King Cobra in .357 for $400. Thought that was a fair price.

    Bad 303, I looked up gun in blue book for you. Cobra (second issue) 1973-81 is as follows 100%-$500, 98%-$425,95%-$350,90%-$250. The first Issue is about $150 higher than the second. Hope this helps you. Break-em all. Jeff

    In my area old Colts and Smiths bring top dollar prices, especially those in really good shape. Maybe $450 - $500. I have seen some S&Ws sold as high as $800 for the old N frame Model 24, .44 Spl (Not the 1983 ltd run "repro" or the current abomination called the "1950" re-make that shoots 4" groups and has the "Thunder Ranch" logo on it), but the ORIGINAL, 1924 .44 SPL and Colt New Service in .45 LC and the S&W 1955 .45 ACP (auto-rim or half moon) target guns. The guns that were made well, last generations longer than their service histories and still launch 200 -250 grain slugs through a clover leaf hole at 25 yards to 50 yards and beyond. Not to be confused with today's "retro repros" that break half the time, can't shoot and cost more than the originals.

    I'd hang on to the Cobra and shoot standard velocity only through it.
