    Let's See Your Bobbed 1911s

    I am seriously considering purchasing a bobbed commander size 1911. At present, I am not sure all the various manufacturers that actually make a bobbed 1911. I have seen, handled and drooled on the Ed Brown Kobra Carry in stainless, but that is pretty pricey for my budget.

    Let's make this a real eye-candy thread. Please let us know the manufacturer and model of your gun. If it was born with a regular grip and you had it converted, please note that as well. Hopefully this will be a fun thread.

    Ed Brown, Dan Wesson, Fusion, & S&W are the ones I can think of.

    Alas, I do not have a bobtail...yet. So no pics here.

    This is a Springfield LW Champion I use to have. I had a gunsmith in Savannah do the bob and frame refinnish for me. Aluminum frame was just bead blasted and then had several coats of clear sprayed on it. VZ Slim Green canvas grips.





    My latest EDC is a blackened Dan Wesson CBOB in .45 ACP. Picked it up on trade as a stainless steel gun and sent it off to a gunsmith in Camilla, Ga. to blacken it by doing a heated metal treatment called Atranite.

    Add Nighthawk and Wilson to the list, also Kimber and S&W have their round-butt models which are kind of a Bob-tail, my guess is they liked the idea but didn't want to use the trade-marked name for the mod.

    Here's my NHC, ordered with the Ed Brown Bobtail.

    I'd love to bob my carry gun, but the frame is nickel plated and would have to be stripped and re-plated (or have bare steel on the cut).

    I'd post my DW CBOB but there are several already posted. Unfortunately about the only way to get a CBOB now is to find a used one for sale. DW replaced the CBOB with the Valor version VBOB.
