    Last night, I picked up a 2008 Dan Wesson Classic Commander Bobtail, aka, the CBob.

    I was looking for a good used Valor, but there was something about having a commander in 10mm. I posted on another forum that I was looking for a 10mm CBob and almost immediately got a response from a guy who bought it new in '08, shot about 200 rounds through it, cleaned it and then put it in the safe. It looks brand new and I can't wait to shoot it. These are his pics, but I'll post my pics when I get a chance.

    Initial impressions? This gun is well made and tight. It exudes quality. This is an older cast frame, but that doesn't bother me. Had a ramped barrel and the slide to frame fit is just as you'd imagine from DW...perfect and and crazy smooth. The trigger is a around 4 pounds and it came with two factory mags and an extra Wilson Combat mag that will go to my Colt Delta Elite.

    I'm very stoked about this one. I got it for a smidge over $1000.00.

    Very very nice!

    It's on my list of things I want but probably won;t get for a while.

    If yo paid just over $1K, you stole it. The 10mm CBOB is REGULARLY being listed at 1300+.

    Sweet!

    They also need to make the Valor in 10mm and 9mm.

    I wish. They have that Razorback LE out in duty coat, but the Valor would be sweet.

    That is a very beautiful pistol. I did learn something new. Did not know the frame's were cast.

    Most of the frames before 2010 were cast, but after that, they're all forged.

    Yeah, it was a great deal. You know that the guy probably spent less, though, originally.

    I almost wish that they don't make the Valor in 10mm so that this one stays special. :)

    Looks great. Good snag. Check with DW. They had a run of bad hammers in 2008. They break.

    No kidding? I hadn't heard that. Maybe, I'll give Keith an email and see.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    Nice grab! Sounds like a good price to me. :thumb: Is this your first 10mm 1911, or just your first 10mm Commander?
