    Picked up a VBOB this Monday.

    I can't seem to stop fondling this gun! Was able to put 200 rounds yesterday of assorted HPs and FMJs and they all ran trouble free, even with the supplied DW 8 round mags and Wilson Combat EMT mags. I hope it doesn't break the bank to keep feeding this baby. :cool:

    Dan Wesson (CZ) makes some very good, smooth, tight pistols. Some of the best production 1911s out there, I think. I liked them even better before the price hike. A VBOB is on the to-do list.

    Nice. Where are they made? Dan Wesson is made in the US, right?

    (One thing I am picky on being US-made is a 1911. If/when I buy another one it will be made here)

    That is a badass gun for sure. Adding it to the short list.

    Yes they are US built. I believe they are owned by CZ now and their shop is on the East coast. Can't remember the city right now.

    Dan Wesson produces 1911's that are outfitted almost exactly as I would outfit one myself. I would really like to have a Guardian in .45. i'd change the rear sight though.
