The famed Colt Cobra revolver design was updated and returned to Colt’s product line in 2017 as the Colt Cobra SKU: SMF20. The first release of the Colt Cobra had a matte stainless steel finish and had an MSRP of $699.00.
In early 2019 Colt introduced the Colt Night Cobra. The double-action only Colt Night Cobra uses the same frame, barrel and cylinder as the previous Colt Cobra SMF20 and is also chambered in .38 Special and is rated for +P loads. The base finish of the Night Cobra is stainless steel with a matte black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. The DLC coating is much more durable and is not supposed to wear over time like a traditional blued finish.
The Colt Night Cobra is optimized for concealed carry use. The slick, durable DLC coating coupled with its signature ‘bobbed’ hammer helps to ensure a smooth transition from a holster, pocket or purse. This design is somewhat reminiscent of the legacy Colt Cobra with a hammer shroud as shown below.
The front sight on the Night Cobra is a tritium green dot night sight which will provide visibility in any lighting condition. In daylight, the white ring provides a natural point of focus with the green dot visible in low-light/no light conditions.
The Night Cobra is equipped with G10 grips manufactured by VZ Grips. The grip has a relief molded into the top right side to make thumb positioning and grip more comfortable.

At an MSRP of $899.00, the Colt Night Cobra is pretty unique piece that would be a great addition to any collection or as a conceal carry pistol. The durable finish and traditional Colt reliability will serve you well for years to come.
