I have a Cobra Patriot .45acp that shoots pretty nice,considering it's weight.It loves 230gr fmj aluminum case Blazer.

I saw one recently, not bad looking & cheap in price. Owner indicated that it was a good truck gun, but not fun to shoot because of trigger pull and trigger slap.

Junk

I had their 45acp once upon a time and it was about the most unreliable gun I've ever had! Took too many trigger pulls, on too many occasions, to ignite the round. Sometimes it wouldn't fire the round at all. Put same round in 1911 and blam! Emails with company said don't use WWB...primers too hard...use Federal. At price of Federals I didn't want to spend the money to see it it'd ever be reliable. Didn't do any better with my reloads useing Fed primers either. Replaced striker spring; still no better.

I think I would rather have a FEG PA-63 in 9mm Makarov than one of the Cobra .380's.You should be able to get a real nice one in hand for about $175.00
