    I have one.

    They are made of a zinc alloy, so do not even think of putting anything remotely close to "warm" loads in it.. Mine has rifling that look likes it was painted in the bore. ...virtually no measurable difference between the lands or the grooves. My trigger was so hard that it often took both trigger fingers to discharge the gun(have since given it trigger job).

    There aren't any for your Cobra.

    The frame and barrels aren't big enough to support 45/410, nor would it be strong enough being made of zinc alloy. The have another bigger model made of stainless steel that is 45/410.

    I'm sorry Col.Klink, but while I applaud your find and am glad you got it, your lack of punctuation makes your post painful to read. I really don't want to come off as being pompus, but a comma, period or proper use of a capital letter once in awhile will go far.

    Again, I'm not trying to be a dick, just my 2 cents.
