1911 @ TFB:

While the Kobra Carry is not new, the dual caliber model is. One slide has a 4.25-inch barrel chambered in .45 ACP with iron sights, and the other is a 9mm 4-inch with Vortex Venom red dot.

The total price for the Kobra Carry dual caliber is $4,695. Potential purchasers can pay in full or can make a $500 deposit.
