Please learn from my mistake. I could find little information for this pistol, save for a couple youtube videos which didn't even hint of the experience I was to have. Now I wish that I spent the extra couple hundred dollars to keep me from this headache. After picking this up from my FFL, I was pleasantly surprised to see a spent cartridge date of April 2012, so this hadn't been sitting in some storage room for a couple years. At first appearance too, I was happy that the black finish looked high quality compared to the picture here and others I've seen. The slide pull was tighter than any pistol I've used before and the vertical ridges cut into the slide offered little help to grip. It included a nice lockable plastic case, single mag, professional looking literature, and a decent lock. I was still feeling pretty good about this purchase until I got to the local indoor range and attempted to cycle the chamber. Using Cobra recommended Federal ammo, the first round that I chambered would NOT extract. It was lodged so tightly that the extractor was simply CHEWING through the soft brass! I had to use a flathead screwdriver to eject the live round because it couldn't be fired as the cartridge wouldn't even fully seat (sticking out approximately 3 mm). Inspected the holding chamber for any obvious defects and saw none, so this time I attempted to chamber a PMC cartridge that actually fully seated though still a bit snug, but now the extractor couldn't get a good catch on the cartridge rim and would simply slip off with little effort, so used the screwdriver again. For these reasons I haven't fired it yet, and I know it'd be easy for them to fix it. But after the cost of shipping 2 lbs next day air for warranty work on a $120 pistol, with the possibility that I may find other defects after actually shooting it, I'm a bit perturbed. Instead I will take it to a local guns-smith to see if it can be fixed cheap. If not, I'll donate it to my gun club as an example why people shouldn't waste their money on a Cobra Enterprises Product
