Here are pics after a night of shooting...and some cleaning..
I may be spoiled by the PERFECT performance of my Springfield TRP, but the Kobra Carry is not what I would expect from a $2500 dollar pistol.
I picked this 1911 up from my buddies dad that's getting rid of some guns for financial reasons. Overall, I would say that the fit and finish of this pistol is just amazing. The attention to detail seems just as I'd expect from a pistol over 2000 dollars. However, after the trip to the range, I'd say that I would definitely not trust my life with this gun.
I ran through a 100 box of WWB, and I've experienced: 6 failure to feeds and 3 failure to ejects.
This is an older model Kobra Carry but it's brand new and never been shot until last night. I understand that there could be a break in period of 500 rounds or so, but coming from my TRP, I believe that a pistol that is almost double of what I paid for the TRP should be even MORE reliable!
I've tested with different magazines that are proven reliable with my TRP so, I can rule that out. I'm thinking that the extractor needs some tweaking, and maybe change out the recoil spring.
I've emailed Ed Brown so I'll just have to wait for his response, I'm sure the costumer service will fix this problem, it's just a pain for me to go through this on such an expensive piece.
Maybe I'll stick to 5" models. Any trades (other 1911's) or offers?
