I picked up the VBob today. I brought it home, stripped it, cleaned it up, lubed it and loaded 10 mags and took it out for test fireing.
I shot it at 10, 15 and 25 yards. The accuracy was good, and the trigger was crisp and light. On the Lyman digital scale the three pull average was 3.6#'s with no creep at all. I thought muzzle rise was noticably more than my 1911's with bull barrels and recovery not as quick but that could just be me. In 75 rounds I had 2 stove pipes and 2 failure to feed. I was useing the two DW mags, Kimbers and Wilson's.
I had never used straight 8 sights before. I thought they worked well though as another review said the rear sight gap is a little wide and caused me some accuracy problems. Now that it is dark I notice that the sights aren't very bright, but not a big concern.
I had one of these several years ago and really liked it and I think this one will grow on me more as I shoot it more.
Bud's was good as usual and delivery was super fast. I ordered it at 3:45 P.M. yesterday and picked it up at about 3:00 P.M.today. This was the 84th gun I have bought from Bud's since 2009 and this was definetly the fastest delivery ever.
Anyway, in my opinion, for what it is worth, this is a very nicely made pistol and worth the price if you like very well made and shooting 1911 style pistols.
