    So Ive been looking at a few 1911s for my carry weapon, and Ive come to 2 guns....

    SA TRP

    Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail

    Now Ive had experience with SA 1911s, and from what Ive read the TRP is a very fine gun.


    Now Ive heard about DW 1911s, don't know too much about them but the CBOB seems like a popular gun in some of the forums Ive been on.

    The DW seems to be about 200-300 cheaper, and a local shop here is an authorized dealer of DW so attaining one should be easy, but Id like to get some input if anyone has had experience with a CBOB or DW 1911 in general.

    thanks :big grin:

    If AB13 posts in here..


    How easily would I be able to get one from Bens Loans in Renton? I turn 21 in the beginning of May and would like to pick one up the week of my birthday...

    Just as easy as any other ffl? It's where I got mines. I try not to sound like a broken record and come off like a fanboy, but yeah, pretty jazzed about mine. I've had mine for a little while, it's at JPL Precision rite now getting a few things done. Trigger out of the box wasn't bad but it's getting a Cylinder and Slide trigger group installed with a Infinity trigger, set to 2lbs. Slide to frame is tight, well fitted and no tooling marks all up in the inside like my Springer. It will not be my last DW.

    If you ever do show up and meet up with me I'll let you dump a few mags. :) I shoot it in IDPA and USPSA and have done pretty good with it.

    AB13's gun is beautiful.
    I'm not the kind of guy who uses that word, especially to describe a gat, but that is a fine looking weapon.
