West Hartford, CT (May 31, 2022) – Colt’s Manufacturing introduced its newest snake gun—the King Cobra Target 22 LR at the National Rifle Association Annual Meetings. From competition to plinking and small game hunting, this baby Cobra does it all and packs 10-rounds of .22 LR in its cylinder.
Exceptionally solid and all-American built, the King Cobra Target 22 LR was designed and made to be shot—a lot! Expect to see these revolvers at the many formal and informal rimfire competitions at gun clubs around the nation. Don’t be surprised when the winners of these competitions are using the King Cobra Target 22 LR.
The King Cobra Target 22 LR features US forged stainless steel construction. The one-piece stainless steel barrel is built for the utmost accuracy, topped with an adjustable target rear sight, fiber optic front sight, and Hogue® overmolded rubber grips.
"We are very excited to debut this new baby snake to our customers at NRA Annual Meetings,” said Justin Baldini, VP of Product Strategy, Colt CZ-USA. “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."
The King Cobra Target 22 LR is available with 4-inch and 6-inch barrel lengths, and both feature a 1:16RH rifling twist.
