Wow, really beautiful ones Zero. Thanks for joining us and sharing the pic's. I really like the Dw's. Is that black cbob by any chance a "severns"? It's really stunning.

Hello everyone,thanks for the welcome!

Without going into too much detail and making a huge post,all three have been excellent shooters. The CBOB in particular has been 100% reliable since day one. I had a failure-to-feed on the very first mag and no stoppages at all since then. Ever. But I've made sure to use good magazines,so I'm sure that helps a lot. And yes,it had a little work done from Mr. Dave Severns...in fact,chances are you might recognize all three of these pistols (and me!) from elsewhere...
:)

So,am I the only guy here so far with DW's? :p

A little off-topic,but yeah,I used to have "two Trans Ams" :wink: Then I got married,and couldn't afford all my hobbies. So now I have zero. Hence,ZeroTA.

I used to have a 10mm cbob, but no longer have it as i sold all of my 10mm's. I would like to have a .45.

Re: Zero what type trigger is on them?

Reconvic said:
The first looks like a STI and the second two look like Caspains?
:?: I don't know where DW gets their slides/frames/blanks from,but these are all Dan Wesson factory built pistols. Somewhat customized,but as far as the ATF is concerned they're Dan Wessons from Norwich,NY.

Oh,you mean the triggers!

D'oh, ZeroTA's already slippin'. :? You are right about the STI trigger in the CBOB. The other two are whatever DW used from the factory,which I heard could be Caspians or McCormick(depends what day your pistol was put together I guess). So afaik,you're right!

Honestly I do not know. At the time of purchase I think DW was using STI but I am no expert for sure. I think the solid trigger is a Greider like they used to use on the Razorbacks. I would love to be corrected if wrong. Geez, what a great forum. I feel like I am sitting around a table with my buddies. :wink:

I figured that was you 2TA. Down to Zero? I still like the old forum but had a run in with a rude mod when I posted a Fusion photo thread. The atmosphere here is much more welcoming. Won't give up the DW forum in a minute however.
