I am looking for a Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail (in .45 ACP of course). There's been a few on sale here, but never when I've had the funds. Now I do. I have nothing to trade other than cash.

I would consider a Kimber Super Pro Carry bobtail, but they are Off List....

I will consider just about any 1911 Bobtail, but I am partial to the DW. I'm in Orange County, and you can ship direct to my FFL or whatever.

I love this forum. I got a number of solid responses via PM, including several Kimber Super Pro Carry's. I need to do more research about those. I'm only familiar with the DW CBOB (never shot one, but have fondled them more than it's appropriate to admit).

So far haven't really discussed serious numbers with anyone, so the floor is still open.

Cheers,

NW

Folks, I had an unanticipated scheduling problem over the past week that kept me busier than I know how to be, but I'm back and online, and plowing through Private Messages. You should hear from me tonight. Thanks for your patience!

Cheers,

NW

^^^By posting the above, expired, ad, are you telling us that your price ceiling is $950?

In the event that I've misinterpreted your intention here, please feel free to PM me and we may perhaps engage in a substantive discussion regarding the sale of my Wesson CBOB.

No, just sort of saying, Dang! Like, "Dang! Why didn't I buy Apple stock 6 years ago....."

I think the CBOB is generally worth more, and seems to be holding its value amongst those that have responded. I am currently looking at two here in OC, just trying to make arrangements to see them and start the DROSS. They are not the same price, but they aren't directly comparable deals either. One has more mags but no OEM stuff, one has all the OEM stuff, including the paperwork and box. Both have similar usage and appear to be in excellent shape.

Re-reading your email, I don't recall getting a PM from you offering to sell your CBOB? If you held off earlier thinking I was going to low ball, all I can say is let me know what you want, and maybe we can make a deal. I need to be under $1500 with fees and everything, and I think that is reasonable. But I will of course choose the best deal I can.

The deal is done! There are a lot of cool people out there with some terrific hardware, but it ended up being easier (much easier!) to with with Dingotech (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/itrader.php?u=32436) and today the CBOB of my dreams was delivered into the hands of my FFL for the 10 day transfer hold time.

Congrats on your DW CBOB. Is the S&W1911Sc on CA -DOJ list? This would be very nice if it's all SS

2008 with about 600 rounds through it. I think there is a 2010 in the Private Sales area that was just listed last week

I don't remember but it's not that important. Face to face transfers can include off list firearms.

EDIT: Yes, the 1911sc is on the list: http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/

Yes there was one. I PM'd the guy asking him a question with the intent to buy it and then some other member posted "I'll take it" while I was waiting for the answer. I asked him if he's sell it to me since I PM'd him two hrs before the other member posted but he said no. I even offered more money. It's good to know that members keep their word when it comes to the first come first serve "I'll take it" philosophy. Too bad for me because I missed out.

Well for what its worth, when I posted (originally on the for sale forum), I received about a dozen offers from folks with CBOB's in the 2007 to 2009 age group willing to sell.

Once the thread got moved to here, there were no more offers because hardly anyone looks through this sub-forum.

If you post up a WTB add, you'll find what you are looking for.
