For the first time, I had the pleasure of handling a brand new CQB this past weekend. It was green/blk with the rail. I was truly impressed. I knew they had a good rep, but until I got to feel the fit and work the action, etc. I never knew how good they were. I've always liked them, but even the best pictures I have seen do this pistol little justice. I comared the CQB with a Kimber Gold Combat II. There was NO comparison and I would tell you if there was. The shop guys would say, well for 400 or so less you can have this Gold Combat and it's really just as good. No way, not even close. I have always kind of wanted a CQB but now I am having a tough time deciding what I will sell to get it. Although I can afford one, we limit fun money for savings, etc. But wow, I just wanted to tell you all that I am impressed. I have a Kimber, an early OR gun and love it, however, the CQB is like nothing I have handled including several Les Baers. NICE!
