We’re proud to introduce our 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! 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 22LR 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 in .22LR.”

The King Cobra Target 22 LR is available with 4-inch and 6-inch barrel lengths, and both feature a 1:16RH rifling twist. For more information, head to our YouTube channel to watch the video or get a hands-on look at #NRAAM in booth #2614.

Colt: Still making history.



  1. This is a great start for new .22LR products. I imagine most folks would like to see something in a semi-auto handgun/rifle design.

    Ooooh. I would love a 10-shot DA .22 LR revolver. It’s good to see somebody giving S&W competition. Any word on an MSRP?


    1. Shawn says:

      no I just got the press release. no more details yet


  3. Wild, wild west says:

    I’m curious why they named these the Cobra instead of Diamondback. Seems to me that would have been a little more appropriate.

    Nevertheless…….DO WANT!


    1. Shawn says:

      some marketing focus group told them the old Diamond Back name didnt test well most likely. who knows? has colt ever made any sense when it came to naming stuff


  4. James says:

    What about a Diamondback in 357 magnum?
