Default Another New Toy!

I've been anxiously waiting for this baby to arrive and I finally got to pick it up today on my lunch hour. It's a factory two-tone Dan Wesson CBOB 10mm. From what I've read, they only made the factory two-tone versions in 10mm for one year, in 2009, and they all made 100 of them. Just so happens that mine is a single-digit serial number and it's in pristine condition! You wouldn't believe how amazing this gun is!

Okay, here are the pics. I will look even better once I find some amazing wood to slap on it!

Very, VERY nice addition to the collection.

I am interested in seeing what your thoughts are with the 10mm round in the shorter barreled weapon.

Definitely looks in great shape for being a couple of years old. Safe queen?

Very nice.

Beautiful! I had a stainless CBOB in .45ACP. I miss it more than any other 1911 I've ever had including a Les Baer TRS.

Me two. I've been toying with the idea of having a Commander size 10mm for years now and I think I'm getting closer to having it done...

Beautiful gun!

Great gun! IMO I think the grips on there look great?

Nice! Very nice! I'll second the appreciation for the grips already on there.

I'm anxious to shoot it as well. I think I will try to load some powder puff loads for it for range fun and then crank it up for some SD loads. It will almost surely be a safe queen seeing as it's in such great condition. I might decide to take it out and display it with some different grips when I book a table a gun show. But you can guarantee it will have a "Do Not Touch" sign next to it!

Here's a different look.

1) - Those are nice looking grips.

2) - I think they need a little more dark to bring out the contrast between the slide and frame.

3) - *drools*
