They make a few of the Commander Classics (CBOB) so that folks in California have something to buy (Cal. must approve a firearm before it can be sold there). You don't have to be a California resident to buy one. They are not easy to find. You might also be interested in the Valor Bobtail (VBOB) which is the same size as the CBOB but with some upgraded parts. It comes in matte stainless or the black duty treatment.

You are referring to the Cbob correct? Yes, it's still beng manufactured in limited numbers for the California market.

They are not bringing the 10mm cbob back in 2012. They brought back the razorback RZ-10, which is a 5", non bobtail.

The 10mm cbob was last offered in 2009 as a reverse 2 tone and all stainless (IIRC).

The cbob .45 is still being made in limited quantities for the CA market, but some seem to always be sold outside the market.

The CBOB and PM7 are the only 2 DW that we Californians are "allowed" to buy new from dealers. I would suggest that you go for the VBOB instead of the CBOB.
