Cobray derringer

Does anyone know anything about the reputation of Cobray or the quality of this derringer?

It looks so much like the old FMJ derringers that I'm doubtful of it.

Then maybe I'm wrong.

My great Aunt left me one too. I figured it was a 410 only, and before she died told meher daddy made her sleep with it under the bed at night for protection. I cannot find any markings at all except a prominant number 1 on the right side. I figured when she was a little girl it was in the 20 or 30's though, got any info you want to share ? thanks JLC

My great aunt also left me a derringer, double Barrell side by side, but I figured it was only 410. Looks just like what the cobray does in this picture. But she always said it was old, like in the 20's or 30's and her dad made her sleep with it under her bed. But I have gone over that derringer with a fine tooth comb and oly thing I can find is the Number 1 on the right side of the Gun. Nothing else, name ser# and what is the 1 so prominant for ? JLC

John, you have me totally stumped. I have no idea what gun your great aunt left you. If I were you, I'd just be glad that she left it to me. Maybe someone on the site who's familiar with antique weapons can furnish some better information.
