Just my opinion, but I'd wait for the '10 model. The new duty treat metal finish is supposed to be astonishing in toughness. It's a treatment much like IonBond, but form what we're being told (which isn't a whole lot) it's even better. Other improvements on the '10 models go to the inner working pieces being made out of better quality tool steel.
MSRP on the 2010 model is $1,530, but street prices will be between 13 and 14 hundred depending on your dealer. With the improvements to the finish and the internals, this is not outrageous when compared with the 11 to 12 hundred prices on the '09's now.
Good luck with your decision, I don't think there is a WRONG way to go.
Thanks,
Sarge

Well, unfortunately you probably won't be seeing any of these in the used market for quite a while. Only 300 were made this year, and those that have them really REALLY like them. If you are very lucky, you might find one in a store somewhere that hasn't sold, but there are many dealers that still have waiting lists for them, so the odds are long. The 2009's went for around $1,100, but the new models have the duty treatment finish and a few other imporvements and the price is up. I don't say this often, but I believe the price increase in justified in this pistol. It's worth every penny.
Good luck with your search!

GEEEEZZZZZZ, the only DW's availiable now that I like are the CBOB's in 10mm. I don't want a 10mm!

Looks like I may be traveling down a different path this time and save the DW for when they bring back the cbob...........if they do.

The CBOB is now the VBOB. Pretty much simply a name change. Still commander length bobtail, but they've added a number of upgrades to it including a checkered MSH housing that many have wanted for a long time. Forged frame, better internals, Heinie sights, G10 grips.
I wish you well in your search!

P.S. - They are still going to make the "original" CBOB, but only about 300 units, and all are going to California since it's one of two DW models already on the approved list. Just wanted to clear that up.
