    I can only offer one word to describe these guns when offered as semi-automatic firearms.
    "Bullet-hose".
    Save you money and find a Mini-Uzi semi auto, a much better choice.

    Designed to look cool, and appeal to those who love spray and pray. Possibly a good gun to use when assaulted while driving your RV...large magazine, so no need to use both hands to reload. Other than that, just a fun toy....

    I got one with the longer barrel, never measured it, probably 12 inches. Its a fun gun to shoot. Not super accurate, but mine is reliable. It would be an awesome HD weapon.

    I bought one of the original Cobray M-10's, chambered for the .45 ACK, which fired from the open bolt. It was merely a "fun gun" for awhile... until it started going full-auto when least expected! The problem was with the heat-treatment of the semi-auto disconnect. I replaced the worn parts, but still didn't trust it. Besides, accuracy was NIL! Fortunately, someone wanted to buy it, or trade for something else. I got a NIB Colt CAR-15 (at the time, $400 was the "going price" for the Colt CAR-15) in the trade.

    Several years later, supposedly after the problem with incorrect heat-treatment of parts was solved, I bought a Cobray M-11/9. Accuracy was still NIL, but I sort of expected that. The modifications that Cobray made to the original version of the M-11 (without the "/9") made it HORRIBLE! LOTS of trigger lash....to the point of being painful after firing only a few rounds! Cobray started selling a trigger group kit that supposedly solved the trigger lash problem, and I bought one. It did solve the problem, somewhat, but not to my total satisfaction.

    Would I buy another one? HeQQ no! While it feeds just about anything, the accuracy of it sucks. The phospate finish tends to suck in moisture, and having surface rust appear after having handled it dry is a MAJOR problem.

    The Masterpice arms guns are much better made than a Cobray and can be had in a basic gun for around $400.00.They are sweet! The .45acp uses grease gun mags and the 9x19 uses Sten mags.

    thanks for all of your opinions, I went ahead and bought an AK-47. Maybe I'll save up for an Uzi.
