    So a guy walks into a gun store He sees a that new Ruger 5.7, a brand new CZ compact and a DW 9mm VBOB.... well which do you think I threw some cheddar on..... up the Dan Wesson 9mm VBOB in pristine condition and it also has a 11 degree crowned barrel (the LGS guy said it comes like that now)...

    Well today was the first day shooting my newly "bubba'd" CBOB trigger job and I wanted to check the sights. The next step it's off to a local guy for a slide-top treatment and black oxide and I'll have my two/tone CBOB. The gun functioned fine, the trigger could be lighter but since this will...

    As the title states, if you could buy 1 Dan Wesson in 2021, would you buy a used Guardian, or a NIB duty coat Valor VBob? Price difference pre-haggling is $150, meaning the NIB Valor Bob is $150 more. I don’t mind waiting on shipping for the used Guardian, and the Valor VBob would be a long...

    I am looking for a lightly used and gently handled DW Vbob or Commander Classic in 10mm that someone is looking to rehome. If there is another manufacturer I should be considering, let me know. Thanks for looking

    I just ordered a new cbob and was wondering if there is any difference quality wise with current production between the two, internally or fitment? Or are the only differences features: Checkered msh, grips,ambi safety and bead blasted vs brushed? Thanks

    Good afternoon fellow addicts! I have a beautiful little commander in 9mm that I was thinking of trading. I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t fired her yet :( She started off as a standard stainless Vbob and was sent back to Wesson for duty treat, blending of the thumb safety, black trigger...

    Hello fellas! Been reading quite a bit on here and am fixing to make my first 1911 purchase! I have it narrowed down to either a Dan Wesson Vbob or ECP in 9mm. Other than the ECP having a bull barrel, are there any other major differences? Any other input is appreciated!! Thanks!!

    For a year or so I've be kicking around interest in purchasing a stainless .45 Vbob. The ideal of DW discontinuing Valor has been weighing on me so I pulled the trigger, ordered a new one and picked it up this afternoon at the LGS. Haven't shot it yet but really impressed with fit and finish...

    I was happy before. I really was! I had trained and trained and trained and trained with my DA/SA SiG Sauers to where that first shot stopped tracking hard left and follow-up SA shots were natural as anything. I got as proficient as I was ever likely to be with the format. I had a nice...

    So as some of you know, I've been just GUSHING about my new Dan Wessons; a Valor V-Bob & Specialist Commander, both in stainless. Specifically related to the Specialist Commander, I had been looking around for someone to do some upgrades, and I have a quote from Dan Wesson custom shop not only...

    After years and years of shooting and carrying DA/SA, and exclusively SiG Sauer... I came to the realization that I just really needed to get back to my first love and switch back to Single Action 1911 (plus my P320 LEGO blocks, which I'll never give up lol). So... I joined the forum, picked up...

    Yes, I just decided slidecut-mounted RMR's should be called "Tophats" But seriously... I see a lot of Ed Browns, Wilsons, even SiG, Springfield and especially Nighthawk 1911s getting tophats, but I've only ever seen one Opti-Topped DW, and I had to dig for it. I've been on the hunt for a...

    Hello, I have a dw vbob commander I may be willing to part with. It started it’s life as a stainless model. I shot a couple hundred rounds and sent it to nighthawk for some work. I had them completely black out the pistol in their black nitride finish, do a trigger job, bevel the slide stop...

    Hello All, I'll get right to the point. I'm stuck between buying a DW vbob or guardian. Which ever one it is, it will be the .45acp for carry. I know, such a difficult decision( slight sarcasim inserted). I am leaning towards the vbob, but I doubt I could go wrong with either of the two. Just...
