The nearby Cabelas, where I was incidentally shopping for my Wife at her suggestion, had both a Razorback and CBOB 10mm in stock.

I looked the CBOB over pretty closely and I can honestly say it was blended a little better at the rear of slide than my '06 is with regards to extractor and ejector. I noticed that the beadblast seemed a bit rougher textured as if they have switched to a coarser media. Whether that would make it less prone to blemishes from coat-zipper abrasions etc... is a question for someone experienced blasting stainless.

After caressing and actuating the Greider Slidestop I think I'll have to put a couple on my wish list if I evergo on an anti-MIM tirade, I really like the feel of that ledge and now understand and appreciate some of the hubbub about them.

I have no idea what kind of hammer the CBOB had which looked to be a very well made part (I saw clean edges & no MIM circles) but it was all blued. On the "bright side" however the FPS is stainless now, baby steps I guess. The RZ looked to have the same hammer as my CBOB but I didn't handle it.

The mag included with the CBOB looked alot like my roundtop follower Metalforms but bore no markings whatsoever.

Then, with my kids in tow and more shopping to do I decided it was time to walk away from the gun counter... So I asked to see the Ed Brown Special forces since I haven't handled Chainlink "checkering" and wondered what it felt like. After admiring the EB for a time and pondering its' fitment and value while wondering if a comment on that topic would be wasted on this particular clerk I returned the fighting pistol and thanked him, then continued on my Merry way through the herd of shoppers.:wink:

I think my Razorback mags were Metalforms, but they were marked.

The 10mm cbob I had came with metalforms, but from what I am understand they are using checkmates now at least in the .45's but I think they have used several different brands.
