Just got this on a trade on Craigslist with a guitar I'd never play again now I know republic is now cobra arms but any experience on this gun? also it's never been fired or loaded

I've been looking for info on it all day and can't find anything solid apparently only 857 were ever made

might want to check out Davis Industries, a maker of cheap junk pistols and a part of a group of companies that have changed names and owners for years. brand new that pistol probably sold for less than $200. bout the same class of pistol as the Bryco, Jennings and Jiminez pistols. i hope it wasn't a good guitar!

what's funny is, you traded for a pistol you knew nothing about, and now you have traded for it and now you want information about it? does that sum it it up pretty accurately? smart thing would have done some research before trading.

The last I knew of this company they were in Salt Lake City, Ut. They were low quality firearms. They were in no way relieable firearms. :(

Its funny i haven't had a chance to get to the range but dry firing already makes me nervous the slide pops back about 2 mm every time the striker is released and the disassembly pin slides out a little hahaha almost don't wanna be the first one to shoot it

before you do take it to the range and shoot it, please do us a favor and count your fingers first. that way when it blow up in your hand, you will know if any are missing!:eek:

Send it to me and I'll wring it out good for ya. I've got brass balls, nerves of steel, and I bleed like any other man. Bring it on.

Agreed, I have no troubles taking risks with firearms. Try dummy caps in it.
