I'm not entirely sure that I am understanding your question, but let me ask this - What gun do you have and what is the serial number?

60354M 1967 colt cobra? nickle plated

OK, that serial number should be a 1976 Cobra, not 1967.

PER JOHN AT COLT THE AGENT AND COBRA SHARED THE SAME #'S YES 1976 SORRY TRANSPOSED #
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
HOW DO i KNOW THAT THIS IS THE COBRA

OK, so that is correct. They shared the same serial number range. So, you are asking if your gun is an Agent or Cobra?

Ask Your Own Firearms Question

Stand by please.....let me gather my references on this

Ask Your Own Firearms Question

Ok, I just wanted to double check my references, but it was as I remembered - If your gun has a nickle finish, its a Cobra.......... Agents were not made in nickle.

Is that all you needed?
