    Hi guys.

    Please post your DW 1911s.

    Here is my DW CBOB from a few years ago.

    I lost it when the economy went downhill and has yet to recover.

    It shot great from the box.

    Hakan made some superb BOB grips for it.

    I'd like to get another DW 1911 someday.

    My chosen defensive load would be the 185 gr.DPX or DT TAC-XP. Hornady's FTX Critical Defense would be another.

    The 2012 Dan Wesson ECO looks promising as well.

    Pointman-9 in 9mmP, naturally. I'm not a big fan of front cocking serrations or fiber optic sights but this is one of the best handguns I've ever had. Incredible workmanship, accuracy and not one malfunction. Ever. It's since been upgraded to an arched MSH; I must be the only person in the world who prefers those.

    The 2102 CZ-USA/Dan Wesson catalogs should be out now.

    Here are some pics of one of my New Again 1911's.

    Started off with a Dan Wesson Point Man. Well used of course. Step in "Coal Creek Armory". Jason Avery is a personal friend and customer of mine. He offered to give my 1911 a good once over. Turned out a once over was an understatment.


    Upgrades made:
    Greider trigger
    Novak front and rear site
    Brown 25 mainspring housing
    Wilson beavertail
    Brown thumb safety
    S&i bushings
    Open magwel
    Checker front strap
    Broke sharp edges
    Throat barrel lead and entry
    Dress breach face
    Polished feed ramp
    Tuned extractors
    isonite finish.
    All work was hand fit and tuned

    43 hours total were put into this 1911. The fit and finish is better than I can possibly describe.

    Who is alive now that can buy one in 2102? That's pretty optimistic marketing.

    COTEP anyone?

    This CBOB has been my EDC since '08, and I absolutely love it. Best value I've ever gotten for my money for a pistol. Cost me $860-ish OTD, which is less than what I have paid for some poly pistols.

    CZF, I hate to hear you had to give up that gun. I know that pistol was dear to you.

    Very nice weapons.

    What are the differences between the C-BOB, V-BOB, Silent-Bob, etc?

    LOL.

    Alright, I'm gonna try to explain this one, but I know I'm going to fail:

    The "bob" part means the mainspring housing is bobbed. Helps avoid printing in some cases, and to some, it feels better in the hand. The "C" means commander pattern. The CBOB was one of DW's mainstays for a long time, but the VBOB has sort of replaced it. The CBOB is still made, but in much smaller quantities, and mostly meant for the California market (they have that pesky drop test legislature). The "V" means "Valor", which was DW's "elite" line of pistols that were introduced in '09, IIRC. At first, they were not offered with the bobbed MSH, but when they were, they were called "VBOB". Now the VBOB is available in 5" and 4.25" (commander) models I believe. The CBOB, while still a fantastic pistol, receives less "special attention" from the shop than the Valor models do.

    Thanks Jason. It was the only 45 that Nancy has ever agreed to shoot.

    Anyone can do it the conventional way. Try throwing something into the mix and train for the unexpected. Obviously, I didn't expect that to be picked up:D
