    I had a Cobra Patriot 9mm. Other than a VERY HEAVY trigger pull I had no issues with it. Accurate, never jammed, went bang every time I pulled the trigger.

    Well I got it yesterday and tried it out. Real heavy trigger. Gonna try to change that. But otherwise a fairly good pistol. Accurate safe a little heavy but I've found it help s with accuracy

    Had a couple of ftf and about 2 fte. I did a little sanding on feed ramp edges and trimmed off other end of firing pin. Sanded down edge of spring retractor as well. Might end up having to get a stronger recoil spring. Gonna see how it plays out

    Well this isn't mine its my wifes and that's why its pink. Ill take some pics on the work I did to it but im using tulla ammo so could be that but had the same issue with federal rounds. I dunno what's with the last round but it always fails to feed

    could, possibly be the mag needs to be broken in. other than that some guns just behave in that manner and nothing you do will fix them, i had one like that, sold it after a few months. good luck with it and hope it works out ok.

    I sanded the feed ramp smooth. Cobra had painted that pink too. I think that was doing most of it. It feeds good now except the slide spring has gotten weak. Every 15 rounds I have to push the slide to close the chamber. Not one jam with with federal rounds. Last round always jams with the tulla

    I've heard that mostly all pocket pistols are prone to jamming

    How much was the cobra itself? Could they be one of those guns only good as a last ditch choice? Have you looked at keltec, are they more reliable?

    My Kel Tec is ugly and it hurts to shoot for prolonged periods, but I have big hands. That said, my wife loves ours and it's performed admirably in the year I've had it. 300 rounds maybe? Like I said, it's not a range friendly fun to fire pistol. But it's ultra concealable and light. Kel tec's CS sucks to deal with (I know on a mostly unrelated issue lol), but it's a decent enough American company. That said, so is Cobra, and they are made not far from my hometown here in Utah. It's too early for that mag to be failing though...

    Im sorry I didn't explain the situation fully. The mag did not fail. My hands ar medium to large size so the grips are way too short. I had just heard through youtube that there was a 6 round.380 mag w/finger rest so that's what im looking for

    That sounded sarcastic... Lol! Seriously though, I will be heading to Salt Lake in a couple of weeks, and I will see if being a local will make acquiring those any easier...
