Ted Dow: go handle a browning hi-power lorcin douche..
older than the hills & will outperform this crap 10,000:1...
Theo Webbster: Good vid, dude. I keep bidding on them online and every time I'm like, wtf am I doing? Somebody please buy this crap ahead of me. So far they have every time, but not sure if my luck will hold. After seeing your video I'm slightly reassured that if I do get stuck with one, it won't be so bad. It's a piece of Americana, right?
Anthony Browning: I bought one for $18 a few years ago before the 'Scare of 2013'. I sold it the winter of '13/'14 for $120. I know how to make them run and I'd spend $18 on one again given the chance.
colin hayden: your review was great! especially for a gun you simply DO NOT recommend for the masses. seriously a well done review. and for the record i have shot a lorcin 9mm and i truly believe the 9mm (not the 380 reviewed here) needs to be melted or sawed into little pieces.
John Owens: I have one... just to have lol
David. “EAGLE” .Mulch: you have a really scary paperweight snicker snicker.
richard fleming: Okay I picked one of these up for still its is a very heavy gun not very pretty and I was having a double feed problem with the Winchester 380 auto 95 grain BEB . then I decided to try some different ammo shooting PMC 90 grain FMJs and haven't had a problem 1 out of it. now I did tear it down and polish the feed ramp and the magazine was a little sticky so I polished it as well like I said haven't had a problem one sense
goog le: I think this is the FS 380 now by Cobra (Kodiak). The CA is the old Davis line from what I can see. Cobra might be a good source for parts for these.
James Carter: Look,,,,all u who walk gun,,,smell gun,,,eat gun,,,talk nothing but gun....check this,,i'm prior service retired. I've had my fun of shooting all types of weapons and I do know about any weapon it still do. And will do what any weapon was made to do,,...So I've shot it ,got one and had no problems. I have more expensive ones but it will do the same as all of them,,,it purpose,,,so if it works for u,,,don't worry about the next.
twogreatguitars: One of those times it goes bang is gonna be your hand exploding...
Nick bensongton: idk why everyone hates this gun so bad I have one, its not the best, yea it jams more than id like (about once every 7 shots) but for the price its not that bad its easy to fix the jams. I do plan on replacing it and i probably would not recommend getting one but if you already did i wouldn't worry too much its bad but not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.
zapadnikisviniy: most used gun in homicides
Daryl Smith: I bought a Lorcin 9mm in 1995, I still have it to this day. Use to have it as my service weapon but I'm not in that line of work anymore. I fire it every 4th of July and New Year's. Not once has it jammed on me. I can let off 14 rounds without fail every time. I only paid about 130 for it.
Patrick Cherry: I have a Lorcin 9mm for sale... Bought new in 97 and fired maybe 3 times...
hmoob Nyob ban sam: scary after watching so many review lol I don't want to take the lorcin 380 to the range now hahahaha heard it might explode . I just pick up one last week for $80 dollar
yluj0407: This was my first handgun and it jammed every third shot consistently. Mine was the stainless version. I read an article somewhere that Lorcin went out of business because there were reports of this gun firing unintentionally. I don't know if that's true but this gun was horrible. Nice review!!!
alblogg: Yes this is a great collection gun to show your future generations the crap that was sold during the good ole days. This gun as self defense or home defense.... buy a ball bat or a High Point if you still want to reach out and touch someone. The one great feature I found is the weight of the gun. A very heavy gun and this to me is an advantage. The reason being if you do use this as a protection device and it jams, do like they do in the old westerns and throw it at your attacker. This may buy you some time to escape. Once again, something to collect but please do not depend on this as a protection device. Reason being the people you are protecting yourself from are not using crap like this. They steal the real guns from owners.
I have the chrome version and think I will take your advice and sand it down and give it a strange or unique paint job.
xXMethereaperXx: There's one i'm thinking of getting from a store around here. After reading nothing but negative reviews, i'm gonna try to talk them down some.
I don't CC and if i plan to i'll use my bro's cobra 9mm derringer, so it's pretty much just gonna be a range gun, but i can paint it how i want and it won't hurt the value, so it's pretty much gonna be a working project.
Great review, honest yet helpful.
DarrylMrT: Don't waste your money buying a used Lorcin. I used to own a Lorcin 9mm. It shot just fine. I had minimal problems with it. But, those guns are now produced under another name; Cobra. You can buy a brand new 380 or 9mm for LESS than $200. They are "budget" hand guns. They are heavy hand guns (which helps absorb some of the firing recoil) , and they are produced for that segment of the market that just can't afford the $350 to $950 price tag for other, brand name fire arms.
Patrick Wilson: I have this gun and I love it. Had it since 1991.
