Good question! Haha. Well, I had somebody offer me a lot more than what I paid for it. I don't want to sell it at all, but I could sell it, buy this brand new, and still have money left over. I just don't know if it would be a good trade off or not. I haven't seen the Ruger in real life yet.
I've got a 5" DW and a 5" Ruger and both are good guns that reflect their price point. Now I am contemplating buying a Ruger CMD and having it bobtailed, night sighted and maybe a trigger job so I could end up with.....well, a cheaper C- Bob or V-Bob. Even with good gunsmithing it still probably wouldn't be quite the equal of a DW.
So....my answer to this question would be a definite ...NO!
Ok, thanks for the responses. Kind of what I figured, but wanted to get another opinion. I'm sure the quality doesn't even compare to the cbob, but I thought I'd get a win-win, with a brand new gun, and money left over. I think I'll just keep my cbob.
