Well, that sucks
Save your BS postings for the General Glocking forum.
Yes it does.I was thinking about buying one.By the time I get the money saved up,they'll all be gone.
Yep, glad I got mine.
My understanding is that CBOBs will be produced for the CA market. Even so, you should still be able to get one.
Sig's P226STs are only produced for the CA market and they are available for sale in any state that does not prevent their sale.
There will still be a CBOB of sorts,....it will be the VBOB.
Think CBOB meets Valor.
Wow, a little aggressive? Training to be a wannabe mod?
This has been discussed a good number of times this week alone!
I'd say 3rdGen40's post was right on track. The "aw jkeez, not this crap again"
poster could have responded more tactfully or simply kept his comments to himself.
Kinda funny how a lot of people would rather post some smart azz comment,
rather than post some information that would actually help the OP out.
Thanks AJ',.............forgot about the UPCHARGE.
Rumor has it they have a new finish as well, kinda close to Ion Bond.
This is correct. The CBOB meets all the Draconian California requirements and will be shipped to FFLs registered in California only. Not really understanding why DW chose to do this ,but they are. You should still be able to get one online through a California dealer. They won't show in the DW catalog or website but they are being built and sold. Still some 09s out there also. Check the locator sticky thread in the DW forum at 1911Forum.com.
Good stuff on 1911Forum. com by one of the guys who appears to be a senior guy at Dan Wesson: http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=250850&page=2

BTW, Keith is the one who handled the custom build of my bobtailed Valor.
Tons of good infor there,....Keith is a great guy.
I've pm'ed him about a few things in the past.
which "seems" like DW doesn't want to go through the BS to get the newer guns CA Approved.
Sounds like Dan Wesson is going to loose a crap load of business.
Are they being run by the same idiots in charge of GM and Chrysler?!
And I don't blame firearms manufacturers like Barrett who essentially tell California to "F-off."
(BTW, both of my children live in the Left State).
do you mean through the limited sales to Cali, by moving up the price scale or both?
STI's Press Release on why they stopped selling to CA.
Seriously, I think Keith Lawton is a pretty saavy dude. He listens to his customers; something that the jerks in Exeter don't/won't do.
I think both,....... they are esentially killing their best selling model, the CBOB.
People in states other than Clai will get them, just have to go through a Cali dealer.
The price hike will drive some business away as well, I was looking at a Valor.
Not with the price hike, I may look elsewhere. However, many other manufacturers
are raising prices due to costs/inflation and other factors.
I can understand why DW would not want to deal with the Cali BS and getting
more models Cali appproved.
