    Ron,

    The CBOB is a great choice for a bobtailed 1911 without breaking the bank. Mine has been awesome.

    That is pretty much what I think I want. I have a hard time trying to justify carrying a 2K+ pistol for everyday concealed carry, so this might be the perfect solution.

    I take it that you find it highly reliable?

    Yes.

    It did have a hiccup or two during the first 50 rounds, which isn't totally uncommon for 1911s as tight as Dan Wessons are. It been perfect though about 500 rounds now.

    They do have a great record for reliability.

    No problem.

    CBOBs are very accurate as well. You'll love it.

    Here is my crappy pic of my budget intro. i kept drooling over Bacs pics and knew i had to get one even if i had to have it built a bit at a time.

    so far its had 500 rounds through it. had a couple hiccups with golden sabers in the first 75 rounds. switched to Wilson 47D mags and its been flawless for the last 425.

    They're very hard to come by, especially the Jardine's custom models. :wow:

    I wasn't smart enough to jump on one, they certainly look sharp and from what I understand were quite the steal at $1300-1500. This one belongs to Ken Lunde who posts here sometimes.
