    Well - I did it. Took the plunge and got a new Vbob. Got it locally for a screaming deal and couldn't pass it up. This thing is absolutely gorgeous. Certainly the nicest 1911 I have had the pleasure of owning. This is getting expensive real fast :)

    Here are a couple of pics

    Thanks! It's my first bobtail as well. I have been looking at them online, but hadn't seen one up close. Went to the shop today and asked the guy if he had one. He didn't have any on display, so he had to go in the back. 5 minutes later, he comes out with this. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. It is even better in person! Cheers.

    Sure did. Came exactly as pictured. I only had enough time to get it home and take pics. Can't wait to get it to the range. :)

    Not at all. It was $1529 before taxes. That was almost $300 less than SEVERAL of the other places I have been looking. My guess is more volume = lower dealer cost = lower consumer cost. I am also military which aI am sure knocked a few off.

    I couldn't be happier!
