New 2020 Dan Wesson’s online

https://danwessonfirearms.com/products

Looks like they have their 2020 offerings up.

Valor is back and looks great. Multiple vbobs.

Specialist with front serrations, I prefer the old one.

Bruin without the angle in the front of the slide, easier to take down. Not as pretty in my opinion.

Not liking the ambi safety and trigger on the Valor.

Agreed. Don't like the new Valor, doesn't seem to be a Valor at all.

Do want to check out the DWX compact whenever it drops, but if they wait too long I'll lose patience and just buy a EDC X9.

Easy enough. Just reach into your parts box and swap them out.

No big loss IMO, I think the DWX line will have much more traction from gamers and regular schmoes like me, assuming it's reliable and the trigger is as good as I expect.

Anyone have any idea when the DWX is slated to launch?

No A2 Commander? Too bad. Mine is tight smooth, and an excellent shooter.

As is mine. Love the A2's. Keith told me their A2 offering is still in production. Carbon on Carbon should always be available IMO-

Should have kept the Valor untouched and then created a fancy name for this new creature.

Ambi on the V-Bob is an unwanted change.

Preferred the original Specialist, too.

Hated seeing the PM-38 go.

I do like the mainspring s checkering on the Guardian.

Yeah, just got to believe they're going to at least want to offer a 9mm as well.

I really wanted to see a VBob offering in 38 Super. I have the 38S Guardian and a SS Vbob in 45, I need another, but I don't see a 2020 Dan Wesson pulling my purse strings.

If they offered the Commander Classic with a bull barrel, I would already own one.

I was told that DW was to offer the 2020 specialist Commander in 10mm.

Only the 5 inch specialist. I'll have to settle for a V-BOB Commander in 10mm. A use one as I really only need a carry gun.

Please show your V-Bob 10s and holsters and ammo choice.

Unfortunately....(or fortunately, depends on how you look at it), nothing new trips my trigger, so my wallet is safe.....

Well, I ended up going with an Ed Brown ExecCarry in 38Super this time around. AZ I think it was you Sat nite giving a heads up of spotting it on GB. It's inbound.

Oh, and I did contact [email protected] he gave me a good quote on a CBob in 38Super, I was preparing to go that route until this gun surfaced.

I had asked DW about fitting my 9mm Valkyrie CCO with a .38 Super barrel a while back and they said they could for something like $200 (I can't recall the exact quote) plus a mag.

Can't imagine they couldn't pop an ambi safety on it for you too, though I suppose you'd probably need new grips too then.
