    Hi...

    I would like to ask how much are U willing to pay for NEW DAN WESSON CBOB 2011 model. YES is 2011 model only for CA resident.
    I
    my local dealer have one in stock and he asking price$1725 +tax(.0975%)+35:wow:

    total=1928.15 OTD.

    I did not ask about any discoust or lower price that he can give, I just SHOCK about that price tag that he post.

    it is way to much for this gun. what do U think will be fair price for this gun ?
    and for the same price range $1700-1900 which will be your choice .:cool: I thinking about Les Baer Coustom carry or P II is better deal :embarassed:

    thank

    I am thinking $1,200 for a Cbob would be about as much as I would pay.. $1,900 otd, and I am looking at a new Baer..

    We were discussing this a few weeks ago. I was under the impression that the CBOB was no longer in production per the 2011 DW catalog, unless they failed to list it as an "only CA model". The VBOB and .45 Guardian were listed however.

    In regards to your question, be sure to ask if you at least get kissed first and bring your favorite lubricant. The CBOB was a tremendous value at it's '09 price around $1k. The '10 price of $1,200+...no so much because you are sneaking into VBOB price at $1,400. Above that, you are in Baer territory...which is a much nicer gun. Close to $2k, you are in Brown territory, as a Kobra Carry will run $2,100.

    Tell him if he just went in the back and took a hit of crack before he gave you that pricing...

    it must be a "custom" CBOB. For that price, you can have a VBOB Stainless.

    WAYYYY too much money!

    I wanted a CBOB for a couple of years and finally got one in early '09. After having it for a while I just wasn't in love with it and sold it without ever feeling a bit of regret.

    For the money you say this guy wants there are lots of nicer guns.

    Dan Wesson firearms were the secret deal when they could be had for nine hundred bucks. I bought a new Heritage early this year, for nine fifty. It's tight, accurate, reliable, and well fit. I bought a CCO this year, and it's the same, though I haven't had time to break it in, and it did have some teething problems when I first took it to the range.

    For the money being asked presently, I don't think it's worth looking to their firearms. I like Dan Wesson products, just not at that price. Go get a nice Kobra Carry, or something along those lines, instead.

    Something wrong here, as the 2011's aren't even out yet as far as I know. You can get a 2010 CBOB on Bud's, Gunbroker etc for around $1,200, so I don't know why the dealer would have it marked outrageously high like that. The CBOB being on the CA list does put it at a premium it seems. It's too bad.
