Kodiak.....DW needs more like this!

I know it will come in 10mm, pretty sure other calibers will follow  O0

“I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them."  John Wayne as J.B Books in "The Shootist" 1976

I fear DW is turning into Kimber. Then again, I am accused of being a 52 year old curmudgeon. :)

Anyone found what the difference is from the Bruin other than color, rail and front serrations?

I am so in love with that gun. From the 1st day, I saw it, I started squirreling away money for one. Now if only it had an MRDS mount.

Color
Sights - Bruin has night sights. Kodiak has target sights.
Safety - Bruin is single sided. Kodiak is Ambi
Front Slide Serration- Bruin has them. Kodiak does not.
Barrel Bushing - Bruin has on. Kodiak is bushingless
Bruin has rounded butt. Kodiak does not
Accessory rail - Bruin does not have one. Kodiak does

Maybe I'm getting old and curmudgeonly too, but I agree.

I love my CCO and 10mm Valor though.  They had to get around to making them to come up with something that good.  I suppose they can keep right on going, coming up with new twists, they just "must" not lose the quality!

Handled the Kodiak at the NRA convention and had my dealer looking for one before I left. Since handling it and owning a Bruin I can say the kodiak does handle a little better but also carriers a little more weight but well balanced. Having also shot a Kimber super Jagaer and being very unimpressed both with the quality and balance. Especially after having to take apart to clean it after about 10 mags to get it to run reliably again even after their recommended break in period.
