    search button- talked about at length all the time.

    High demand for a low quanity production item. Only available in CA for 2010 b/c its on the list and getting new guns on the list is really hard. People in the other 49 states get to fight over Vbob's. Straight from Keith @ DW.

    I already have one so :tongueout:

    I was under the assumption it is a popular seller... why would they discontinue it?

    It was/is very popular. Wesson is taking the Valor model and making a VBob this year in leiu if the CBob. The only reason the CBob is being made at all is because it is legal for sale in Kalifornia and they don't feel like jumping through all the hoops to start selling the VBob there.

    One of my local shops just got a couple in last week.
    Otherwise, I think you have to buy one from a scalper. :)

    It looks as if there are 10MMs available, but .45 ACPs are scarce.

    And you wont either. As of 2010 CZ has dropped the CBOB from their line. I spoke to the CZ rep last week. There are a few new still out there and they (CZ) have raised there dealer cost on this gun to 1200+.

    It is being replaced with the VBOB with a retail of 1500-1700 for their entry level gun.

    Just so you guys know I let that CZ rep have it with both tubes. They have priced the average 1911 lover of the CBOB out of their market and no one really even knows who they are.

    To their credit, they do have some kickarse shotguns coming out at a fair price.

    Several weeks ago, I posted a link here where Keith listed what models and production quantities were to be produced, in '10, and market limitations on one or two models.

    People can look it up again on one of the 1911 forums if they care to.
