    A friend of mine has a Dan Wesson 45 he may sell to me. It is a Bobtail Commander, stainless steel. I don't know a whole lot about them. I'm not a 45 guy, but I could be. Could someone give me some info on them. What people who own them think about them, quality of the gun in general etc. TIA

    Search the forum for "Dan Wesson, bobtail" and you will find a ton of information. They are very popular. :)

    $750, he has put 500 rds thru it. I believe it is a good deal. I haven't seen it yet, but will in a day or two, when he brings it to work for me to look at. It is great to work at a place that is gun friendly and can have them out in the open and no one gets upset. Plus he is the boss.

    The Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail is by far one of my favorite pistols I have ever owned. At that price you are getting a great bargain too.

    Well that is good news. I was pretty sure it was a good deal. I just wanted to hear what people who own them think of their gun. Sorry guys but I think I'm going to buy it and keep it for myself. I need to look at it first. I know the owner well and I know he keeps good care of his guns, so I'm sure it will be in like new condition. From what I have read up on it, it sounds like 500 rounds thru it, means it is just broken in. :thumbup:

    I'm claiming a post trade pre-nup! I traded the CBOB to doubletap, but only because I have another one. Is that like being in Arkansas and married to twins and giving one of them up? :laugh:
