    My stainless steel Dan Wesson CBOB chambered in 38 super shipped today. It has some nice touches; Wilson Combat bullet proof safety, semi-extended slide stop (recessed) and 3-hole trigger along, challis slim-grip bushings along with an orange HD XR front sight and low profile snag-free rear sight and VZ grips

    This thread is worthless without gratuitous Gun Porn pix.......

    Please don't post again, until we can lust after your new acquisition.

    I feel your pain.... I know it's tearing you up inside.... :D

    I'm waiting on parts, and I'm so impatient that I've become unbearable to live with ;)

    I don't often say "damn" when a gun comes out of the bag but when I saw my Dan Wesson Classic I was like "hot damn".

    The bead blasted finish was my largest concern as I wanted a real satin look and wow, DW nailed it.

    The gun is perfect, the front sight POPS, and when looking at the rear of the slide you can see just how perfectly mated they are.

    Did anyone notice the WC "low" safety? First time I have had that added to a build but it's my 5th time using the semi-extended slide-release and WC 3-hole trigger. I wanted to see if there was less "reach" up with my thumb and in the few minutes I messed around with it it feels 'right".

    Oh, did I mention, 38 superb ? Do you guys like the grips, I've been acquiring a mass of bobtail VZ grips so we'll play around but I saw these on a YouTube video and fell in love ;)

    Sharp looking piece there! Congrats and be sure to give us a range report.:thumbs:

    As for the grips, I like that lighter color to go with the finish. I wouldn't change them if it were me but, everyone is different.

    That’s a beaut. When I see one like that I covet a SS 1911 commander; a DWwould be fine.
