The Cobray Company was an American developer and manufacturer of sub-machine guns and automatic carbines, handguns and shotguns as well as non-lethal 37 mm launchers. These were manufactured by SWD. In the 1970s and 1980s, Cobray was a counter terrorist training center in addition to being an arms maker under the leadership of Mitch WerBell.
The legacy of Cobray is a poor one, with most firearms collectors and enthusiasts agreeing that the company's products were poorly designed and marketed, as well as being impractical. Today, Cobray's name is synonymous with two of its products in particular, the Street Sweeper and the Lady's Home Companion, the former of which was so offensively named and marketed that it led to a lobby of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms to classify it as a destructive device. Similarly, the Lady's Home Companion (a pistol derivative of the Street Sweeper) is regarded as a wildly impractical pistol, due to its chambering in .45-70 and its weight of over eight pounds, which makes it an unwieldy and cumbersome weapon.
After some legal troubles, the company changed its name to Leinad (Daniel spelled backwards) and produced at least four new models which were designed to conform with the ban on assault weapons that was then in effect.
The owners of Leinad chose to change the company name and sell the company to Sylvia's son, Shane Arrington, because of the changes in the gun laws and the divorce of company founders Wayne and Sylvia Daniels. The Cobray Trademark is registered to a privately owned company in the US. They continue to manufacture parts, accessories, as well as multiple firearms.
