no pictures but wanted to pass along that I found the name, Guns4sale on this site. Kenny, at Guns4sale could not have been more helpful. His interest in Dan Wesson will match anyone on this site.

Wanted to thank posters here because the information that I found here about the Valor helped me pull the trigger.

After I purchased it, called Dan Wesson and my call was returned quickly and my question answered thoroughly. It was quite a change from my experience with Sig customer service. Service was so good that I returned my Sig and purchased an HK. Can I say that here?

One of my gripes about Kimber is that they achieve accuracy in their high end guns with the aid of a 3 lb. trigger as does my Wilson CQB. Interestingly to me, when I picked up my Valor at my local gun shop, standing next to me was the U.S attorney.

If I had to use my Valor to defend myself, the 4 & 1/2 lb., crisp trigger measured at the gun shop would be a lot easier to defend and the word "hair trigger wouldn't be used," by the D.A. at my possible criminal trial or the attorney at my likely civil trial when some perps second cousin that never met him sued me.

Like an earlier poster, I've owned a lot of high end 1911's and my Valor feels better in my hand than my old TRP and has a better trigger out of the box than that gun had after a trigger job from the factory. It is better looking and feels every bit as good as my Wilson CQB.

I'm having a hard time believing that this is a production gun. Thanks to all here who made the Valor a big production, talked about it and published pictures. I have all of you to thank for my education and new arrival.

Couldn't be happier. Will let you know how it shoots.

nice catch on the valor.
ive spoken with kenny @ guns4sale several times in my quest for my DW.
we were waiting on several weapons to come in and he was great with communication and spent time talking on the phone etc.

during this process a razorback came up on gunbroker for 799 B-I-N and it was just a deal i couldnt pass up.

kenny was so helpful and outgoing that i honestly regret not be able to give him my business and would not hesitate to deal with him in the future.

... and props to DW for the tightest 10mm on the market.

Glad to have you aboard our little forum and congratulations on a very fine weapon choice,such a shinning endorsement from a first time DW buyer realy speaks well of the folks that build these little beauties. it sounds as though you are familiar with some of the bigger names in this business which gives your comments even more weight. keep us informed of your experience with your DW Valor.
