If it isn't on the Safe List, just wait for it..

My point was really that the Dan Wesson Classic is already on the list but so far has only been the bob-tailed version (list doesn't specify anything other than Classic).

This new version, if DW doesn't rename it, is still a DW Classic and should therefore be available correct?

Interesting, how specific is the list? A "Dan Wesson Classic" with CBOB has to be a different model number than this "Dan Wesson Classic", right? If name only did it, wouldn't a 1970s Colt Combat Commander or Smith 29 also be OK because they have the same name? They're not, something tells me this DW isn't - of course I hope I'm wrong, wouldn't mind another DW.

Smith & Wesson started using dash #s like a 15-4 and 15-2 so that is specific on the roster.

Colt specific their guns by model #.

The Dan Wesson Classic on the other hand is listed like this on the roster:

Classic / CCL / Stainless Steel Pistol 4.35" .45 ACP 1/31/2010

It's simple, the safety list has nothing to do with safety - at all.

Take a DW CBOB and color the frame - new gun. Take the CBOB and add different sights - new gun.

Got to test all new guns don't you know.

If it was remotely about safety, LEO's couldn't buy off list weapons.

Really? All my Smiths have no dash. ;)

Just kidding, unfortunately. You're right, I forgot about all the dash versions.

Imagine the poor DCGunners... With our list adopted by their city.

I say you are good to go! Description on the DOJ web site is exactly the one you have in the pictures.

O I won't be getting that (maybe). I already have this here...

But if there are no changes to how DW labels this gun compared to their bob-tailed Classic then it is nice to have another option available, especially of this quality.

You're right.. nothing to do with safety.... what makes a S&W 629-6 (on list) safer than one of the 629-5 or 629-4 off list guns? If a manufacturer is willing to pay the DOJ extortion fee to keep a previous version on the list.... it's a "safe" handgun.

I don't know if your DW CBOB example of a change of sights making it a different gun was being done with "tongue in cheek" ... but in actuality I would think that making a change like that would not suddenly make an "onlist" gun into a different model needing to be recertfied/relisted with the DOJ.

A prime example, IMHO, of this is the S&W 4006, which is simply listed on the roster as "4006/Stainless 4" .40 S&W".

But you can legally buy a 4006 version with either fixed, adjustable or night sights, spurred or bobbed hammer (4006 CHP version), or even a Performance Center 4006 version with a tricked out PC style slide and a frame that looks a bit different than the box stock version, all because they are all stamped "4006" model number on the frame and meet the specs listed on the Roster... Model 4006, stainless, 4" barrel, .40 S&W caliber.

Performance Center 4006:
