I am seem places listing v-bobs blk for $1800+ and the ss for $1500+. They are out of stock, sure, but I am wondering if these prices aretrue prices already from the distributors. If this is true.....

I was in my local shop today, counter guy said the ValorBob will be over $1300 in dealer cost, so that puts the retail around $1500 plus...

Great for them if DW quality will improve, but you won't see them flying off the shelf!:(

After seeing those prices I have decided that I am going to let you all Beta test them and listen to the feedback before I throw down that many duckets on any 2010 DW's.

Now I'm sure they will be fine weapons but for that much money I'm gonna by a Thunder Ranch first.

Oh Boy - Continuing to wait...
AARRRGH - The v bob black was supposed to be a no brainer, looks like there will be some home work to do (once we know exactly what is being offered at those prices).

Yep, It still doable.

On sporting arms it seems to say it cost's $350 to get black. They also seem to show a bobbed 5 incher, if I am seeing correctly. Maybe they have some fine tuning to do on their site yet.

So, since it's true how/when do we get a headsup about what we will be getting for the bucks?
Hopefully DW can tell us what each of the changes/improvements are so budgets can be planned and decisions made.
As I said I thought the vbob and gbob would be no brainers but now I (for one) need more info.


On second thought, no matter how expensive it may seem $1800 for the vbob black may not be so bad $200 general price increase (vs the '09 Valor), $200 for the upgraded finish and another $100 for miscellaneous goodies. Hmmmmm

Third thought - go pick up my mouse gun over at STI (not gonna carry it anyway, it's a fun piece), save $600, and buy the Vbob no matter what the cost. I got some thinking to do for Monday. More info is always good, best that we know this starting now.
