    Cobra firearms?

    A friend of mine has a Cobra 9mm, and seems to think it is a very well built, worth the money gun, it is one he carries daily.

    Just curious what others thought of this brand, iv never seen it discussed, which makes me think they cannot be to good.

    Just debating weather to go for the 9mm or keep the Bersa .380 I have in layaway now.

    Based on the reviews here www.e-gun.netl I would be reluctant. If they are the same manufactuter as Pheonix Arms, as one of the comments indicates, from personal experience with a Pheonix I would say pass.

    Never heard of them, which enough for me to stay away.

    That particular model I believe was known to fly apart. A coworker has one of their derringers in .32 acp. I think I would stick with a proven value in the Bersa.

    Works for me. I was just curious.

    I should have known not to ask, while at the shop the other night, a guy came in and looked at one of the Cobra's and Hi Points, and one of the guys there told him he would be better to spend 50 less and get the Hi Point.

    Would pass on the Cobra.
    I would maybe look into Charter Arms
    for a good cheaper revolver. I have a Bersa
    mine isnt reliable enough for me to bet my life on
    but some are.

    I found their Patriot 45 in a shop for $300 new and got it for my dad for his birthday. He had to send it back because the feed ramp wasn't polished but after it came back it was good. He carries it sometimes but I don't think he has put more than a few hundred rounds through it. It looks designed for CCW. It even takes the 6 rd 1911 mags. I read reviews after I bought it and they said it was an okay gun.

    I didn't send mine back to polish the feed ramp, but it did need a good polishing, nothing that my dremel and some high grit sandpaper couldn't take care of. It is my truck gun. I don't carry it on my person anymore, and I wouldn't be too heart broken if it got stolen. I think it makes a good truck/tacklebox gun.

    I wouldn't buy anything other than the .45 Patriot either. Have heard nothing but bad things about the other calibers.

    Cobra Patriot 45

    I've had a 45 for a couple of years now with absolutely no problems; I would not buy any of the other models

    Cobra tends to buy defunct companies designs. Then put them out under their name.....They bought Davis designs and put them out. I wouldnt trust anything from them since I've fired a Davis, heck just got the thing working somewhat again recently for GP. Cobra is a hodgepodge, do a lot of research on the specific weapon first.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I have handled two models of Cobras including the Patriot. I believe these are high quality pistols and would not hesitate to carry one if need be. I once sold firearms for a living and have handled and fired scores of pistols. My initial impressions on the Cobras were good even though I was never able to shoot them.
