This is a Colt Cobra .38 special with a 3 inch barrel. It has very minimal wear as can be seen from the photos (scratches near screws). There is no box or papers. This firearm is so clean that I cannot tell if it was even fired. It may have been carried some, but was well cared for and not abused. Three inch barrels on these guns are rare and were not catalogued or produced in quantity.
