Does this picture mean anything to you guys:

I believe this was taken in 1999 at World Cup, but I could be wrong. There is a cobra emblem in the top left so it may be at a cobra booth. The top angel led looks like a Dark, the middle led looks like a Cobra, and the bottom one is an RT micromag.

Does anyone know anything about it? Anything at all.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if those were connected with someone from/at Pro Team Products. If you look at the Dark LED, there's an Armson OEG site on it, and the MicroMag is one of the early removable barrel models.

Actually, looking at the Micro again, it's a Gen 3. The Gen 2 guns had the body come straight down in the back, while the Gen 3 had a cut that went toward the barrel.

Cobra put that arms on sight on some of their LEDs too. Wonder if the companies were friends.

Actually if you look closely at the angel next to the cobra, it isn't a dark.

It looks like similar milling to an infinity LED, with the deep scoops in the breech, and the circles milled on the front.

I'm sure that it is not a dark. I do remember it being a part of the cobra anodizing gallery on their site. I loved the faded reverse brush stroke anodizing.

Method is correct. And piccolo does not own that marker anymore.

Thanks guys.

Yeah the top angel looks now to be an infinity or something like Method said.
The middle angel is not the cobra Picollo owned. It may be the same anodizing pattern, but the brush strokes are in different spots indicating a different cobra.

I agree, but the breech does have an odd shape to it like an infinity.
Also, I can almost see a square spot to the right of the breech where an old angel jewel would go.


Most of my concern relates to the angel in the middle, but gathering context clues helps.

I'm going to try to get ahold of the original owners of Cobra Paintball and see what they say. I have other pictures and stories to ask them about related to this as well.
Did you guys know the two brothers who owned Cobra opened up some sort of climate/humidity controlled Wine Storage facility south of LA. Kind of like the car storage garages. Such entrepreneurs they are. It seems people in LA are strapped for space, but still want to uncork the vino. Oh, I found that out by my awesome internet searching skills

Stay tuned, there may very well be another version of the "Cobra LED" that many of us don't know about...

Yeah, I think the middle gun is a different type of cobra led. I figured someone might remember the booth or if it was their first reveal of the cobra led. I'm gathering as much info about it before I ask the guys who created it. The info provided thus far is exactly what I'm looking for.

Yeah, the dark is more teardropped and the teardrops are larger as well. The divots in the pic look more like those found on the Truth Series LED (it's also definitely not a Truth Series though - the divots on the Truth Series are uniform and there are a lot more of them). Weird thing is that milling pattern looks familiar to me, but I can't place it now.

Yeah, I found that out when I tried to go back to the well for one final basket of Cobra's clearance sale items and their URL redirected to the wine storage site before finally going dark about a week later.

I might just take a ride up there with all of my cobras.
