Welcome to The Firing Line, Extraperson!

In addition to looking here in the Semiautomatic forum, you might try searching some threads down in The Smithy.

If it's failing to extract the shell.....

I have traded on many of these Cobra/Davis throughout the years. New extractor(if worn), extractor spring, Should do the trick if it's not to worn.

Never hurts to re-spring the whole thing if the gun wear is minimal. The springs wear quick on these....design and everything...just not an everyday shooter.

Taurus has a nice little tcp 380 6+1....reliable....starting @ $200. Maybe when you get it back...trade it off.

Good luck either way.
