Default Sarge's new VBOB is finally home!

I picked up a new Dan Wesson VBOB but sent it off to be part of a multi pistol shootout. All I did was rack the slide once and put it in the box with the others and send it off. Well, it shot pretty well in the shootout, but I'm glad to have her home for the first time now.
I had the pistol smith doing the shootout add an ambi safety and my standard STI long carbon trigger while he had it. As you can see, this is done in the new Duty Treat metal treatment that DW started using this year.
Everything on this pistol is fit well. The hand work in the assembly is evident throughout. I really like this pistol so far and can't wait to get it to the range!

Very nice indeed Sarge.

Great looking piece Sarge! I have always been somewhat of a DW fan.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
