$25.00 – $200.00
In 1986/87 the California Cobra was constructed by Southern California machinist Rich Breen and partners Sam McBride of Aerostar East (Chicago, Illinois) and Gale Gough of Aerostar West (Brea, California).
Like the KBS Eliminator and the PUMA, the untimely release of a stock class marker when the introduction of production direct feeds was just beginning likely spelled out the demise of the California Cobra. Partners Sam McBride and Gale Gough likely cut ties with Rich Breen and pursued the Aerostar Assassinator.
Serial numbers indicate close to 60 California Cobra markers may have been produced, but the reality was much less. This marker was purchased at a gun show in Idaho by Sam Brinley in 2008. The serial number on the side of this California Cobra reads “1 100141.” I would guess the serial started at 1 100100.
The internals are closely Nelson based but a smaller outer diameter. The only advertisement I’ve come across for the California Cobra was from 1987 issues of the Command Post.
