Colt Announces King Cobra Target Revolver

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

WEST HARTFORD, CONN., (DATE) – Colt continues to develop its re-imagined family of “snake guns” with the release of the much-anticipated King Cobra Target. Featuring a 41?4” barrel, adjustable rear sight, elevated fiber optic front sight, and custom wood medallion grips, this revolver was thoughtfully engineered to adapt the powerful .357 magnum King Cobra to the competitive range. The new King Cobra Target is available now through the Colt dealer network for $999 MSRP.

Forged from American stainless steel, the 6-round capacity, double-action revolver is the third model in the modern King Cobra series. Colt reintroduced King Cobra .357 in January 2019, followed by the King Cobra Carry in May of 2019. Colt’s snake guns continue to be popular for defense, target shooting, and with collectors.

“After releasing the King Cobra earlier this year we received a flood of requests for a 4” model with adjustable sights. Our customers are excited to bring their Colts to the range and the King Cobra Target is engineered for accurate and enjoyable shooting. The longer barrel and custom wood grips also just look fantastic,” said Justin Baldini, Director of Marketing at Colt. “We’ve precisely tweaked this revolver to get it exactly where we want it and know our customers will feel the difference.”

Customers can visit colt.com to purchase the King Cobra Target and find their local stocking dealer.

SIG SAUER Introduces Tungsten Infused Polymer Grip Module For New P320 XFIVE Legion

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019

People have been asking for years, when SIG would bring a striker fired pistol into their exclusive, members-only Legion line, but all of the SIG Legion models have been metal guns.

For the XFIVE Legion, SIG SAUER engineers introduced a patent-pending process which infuses tungsten into the polymer material providing the weight of steel with the flex of polymer. The result is the TXG grip module.

The SIG SAUER P320 XFIVE is a 9mm striker-fired pistol, with a Coyote Tan TXG tungsten infused heavy XGrip module, a Legion Gray PVD Slide with lightening cuts, 5” match grade bull barrel, and a lightened and skeletonized trigger.  The recoil assembly of the P320 XFIVE Legion has been upgraded to include a one-piece stainless steel guide rod and a 14 lbs1911-style spring, plus an extra 12 lbs spring, allowing the end user to easily adjust the recoil spring for a customized shooting experience.  The pistol comes optic ready and is compatible with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics ROMEO1PRO Optic or a standard DeltaPoint Pro Optic, features Dawson Precision Fiber Optic front and adjustable rear sights, and comes with three 17-round magazines with anodized aluminum Henning Group base pads.

“We are really excited about the introduction of the SIG SAUER P320 XFIVE Legion to the market because it embodies the forward-thinking SIG SAUER mindset when it comes to product development,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “The P320 XFIVE Legion is defining innovation and changing the game for competition pistols, and it’s these exclusive features that are designed to enhance the shooting experience that our Legion members have come to expect from us.  The grip module is heavier, substantially reducing felt recoil and muzzle flip, and the newly developed trigger reduces pull weight by up to 30% for a crisp, fast shooting experience – and that’s just the start.” 

Heres’s SIG’s Phil Strader going over the XFIVE Legion.

P320 XFIVE Specs:
Total length: 8.5”
Barrel length: 5”
Weight (including magazine): 43.5 oz
Height: 5.8”
Width: 1.6”
Sight Radius: 6.8″
