I was looking at their website and the derringers look a lot like the Davis line.
Anybody know where they are from?

The .22/.22 mag derringers are made by Cobra Enterprises. They're not exactly *top quality*, not even *mediocre quality* really.

Cobra enterprises of Salt Lake Ut. bought the Davis company and is producing the whole line of derringers.
I have both the .38 Special (with a secondary "Long Bore" 3 1/2 BBL), and a small frame .22 LR model also.
The .22 is a real fun gun and with using CCI CB Caps, is a really fun play gun. With .22 snake loads it is viable snake medicine, and the .22 LR is a serious round even from such a small pistol.
The .38 Special is a hard kicking pistol but is one serious self defense gun. The long bore barrels not only look cool but shoot well and help tame the recoil, You should get the Rosewood grips as they have a fingergroove which helps control recoil.
For Cowboy action shooting sidebar games the .38 will definatelly "ring" a steel plate!
The Cobra derringers are U.S. made and have a LIFETIME guarentee too!

That's what I thought. It would be nice to have a quality small derringer for fun. The Bond guns are nice but BIG.

I saw that Iver Johnson said they were planning a 22 LR Sharps like the HJS guns (now defunct) but haven't seen them.

The Davis/Cobra's are nice for the money and I had one up until I found a used American Derringer M-1 in 357. I have a Bond arms also yes they're a big gun. The AD is more the size of the big bore Davis but heavier IIRC 11oz vs 15oz. also It's a way better built gun but it's also about three times the money.

Here's a couple pics for size compairison notice there's not much difference in OAL but there's a bunch in girth.
