The Cobra Submachine Gun is a 9mm folding-stocked semi-automatic machine pistol of Rhodesian origin manufactured during the Rhodesian Bush War era. The weapon looks like a mix of the Ingram MAC-11's receiver; the Uzi's pistol grip, forend, and folding stock; and a shortened version of the L2 Sterling Machine Carbine's shrouded barrel. It was intended as a 'Land Defence Pistol' for white Rhodesian farmers.[1] Around 2,500[2] individual firearms were produced at some point between 1968 and 1979.[3]
