Nice choice! The CBOB is one of my favorite wants.
Snowman, very nice and Congratulations.
Is there a "break in" period for a Dan Wesson? I forgot I must read JD's blog again.
Dan Wesson: All DW says in it's wonderfully brief 7 page manual about what do prior to firing is
Before firing your DAN WESSON handgun for the first time…
To assure safe, trouble-free performance beginning with the first time you fire your DAN WESSON handgun, follow the cleaning and lubricating instructions of this manual.
I have to say...I'm anxious to carry it. But I need a holster for it. Rocky, you should be hearing from me soon!
Thanks everyone. I just got off the phone with Rocky at Pure Kustom. He happened to have a antiqued saddle tan Black Ops Pro in stock. Should ship out Monday! Wooo -f'n-hooo am I excited. Rocky if you read this....Thanks much and I ejoyed the conversation!
You really are a lucky guy! I have been trying to get one of those but I have not been able to find one. Congrats to the CBOB!

Nice gun, looks just like mine
Now all you need is a good holster. So many choices. I bought two: Crossbreed Supertuck and C5 Leather Montana XLT. The jury is still out on both, but I can say they are both very comfortable.

Congratulations, a great 1911 and a great holster all in one week. I think you hit a home run.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Congrats!!and excellent choice too! just make sure you lube it nice and to loosen the slide to frame, make sure its unloaded,no mags near you and then start getting some exercise by racking the slide back and forth until you get tired then switch hands and do it again, Dan wessons are known for having a tight fitting and this is the cheapest way to loosen it wiyh out spending money on ammo..P.s I have one still unfired, got it 2yrs ago, saving it for my boy who is only 6..I also got the Pointman 7 in 40cal..
Great pickup snowman, I have been preaching about the virtues of Dan Wesson
1911s here for over 3 years now, and I am glad to see more people are coming around and seeing the light. The CBOB's are outstanding and DW 1911's in general are likely the best semi-custom 1911platform availble today in the $900-1100 range. The list of features is impressive for this price range and the association with CZUSA has really been a boon for the quality and service for DW handguns.
