Gun show find -- California Cobra
 
Was at the gun show today, and something caught my eye from two aisles over. All I could see was two tubes and a pump. I figured it was a LB Puma or Nightmare which would have been cool enough, but I rushed over and got a closer look, and well....WOOOHOOOO!

On the inside of the pump, there are two BBs that slide along a milled channel in the body. I'm guessing it provides for a smooth stroke, and helps protects the body from wear.

The grip frame is actually three separate parts. The bottom piece is the only thing with a non-textured finish.

The wood grips have some scratches, but no cracks, and the finish is still excellent. Also came with a nice camo holster.

Not interested in sending this one back out the door anytime soon, but anyone have a clue on the value?

Apparently the seller played back in the 80's early 90's and has a couple SMGs and possibly some other goodies that I'll be checking out later.

Would you mind if I use your pics for VR?

Here is a link to VR page on the gun.

I've never heard of this. I assumed it was a BE Cobra.

Yeah, i saw that there was only one pic up there....Once I get my camera charged again, I was going to do a tear down and take some better pictures for the archives. And sure, feel free to use any pics I post.

Thank you

I looked on the Blue Book, but it has no value added. :(

What material is it made out of?

It looks like plastic.

We need to add some sort of price to the blue book, that's an awesome find!

The only other one of those I've ever seen is in the EMR museum....NICE FIND!
