Colt Cobra

Colt Cobra - .38 Special

The Colt Cobra is a snubnose revolver, and is a lighter version of the Colt Detective Special. The Colt Cobra was preferred by detectives and policeman over the competing Smith & Wesson revolvers at the time.

The Colt Cobra is also known to be the revolver used by Jack Ruby to shoot and kill Lee Harvey Oswald, President Kennedy's alleged assassin on November 24, 1963, after the President had been shot 2 days prior. The revolver is seen in the iconic photograph that captured the moment Oswald was shot. Ruby's revolver was equipped with a hammer shroud, meaning he likely did not cock the hammer before shooting Oswald.
