The popular Bobtail Commander is now available in the Valor series in the form of the V-Bob. The Valor series is our flagship line, meaning it’s the best we have to offer. Frankly, we feel it is the best built production 1911 on the market.

The V-Bob is loaded with features, including a forged Bobtail frame with 25 LPI checkering front and back, an undercut trigger guard, tactical ledge night sights, VZ slim line G10 grips, EGW carry bevel bushings as well as our tool-steel fire controls and other premium small parts. Every piece that goes into the Valor series is hand-fit, polished and blended to provide you with not only the best functioning gun we can provide, but also the best looking.

The V-Bob  can be had with either a matte stainless glass bead finish or our super durable black Duty finish. This finish is a revolutionary treatment process that actually bonds to the components and creates a super-durable matte black skin. Our Duty Black finish beats any of the spray-and-bake finishes most companies use today, hands down. Our durability testing proves it and our customers love it – which is proof enough for us!

I was skeptical about the quality of the V-bob for the price, until I recieved it. This gun is absolutely the very best fitted and silky smooth 1911 out there
in this price range. Makes me look like alot better shot than I am. 1-1/2'' groups at 15 yards. Could only get about 3'' with my Kimbers. Also a very comfortable
carry piece in the commander size. If your on the fence about this one, get off!! Grab one while they are in stock. I would recommed to anyone!! Took about
10 days for me to recieve mine, but buds was great to deal with. Will be back for an ECO soon. Awsome gun!!

I have owned Ed Brown, Les Baer, Kimber, and Colt 1911's. This Dan Wesson Valor Bobtail is my absolute favorite. The finish of this 1911 is as nice as my Ed Brown. It is much nicer than the Colt, Kimber and Les Baers. The fit is superior to all, even my Ed Brown. There is zero slide to frame movement. The barrel lock up is bank vault tight. It has the cleanest breaking trigger I have ever felt. The safety snaps on and off clean and crisp, and the grip safety is very firm, no rattles. When ever I read a review this positive, I always think it isn't real, but I have honestly never been as satisfied with a gun purchase before. Beautiful gun, excellent value.

Buds shipped fast, and had a great price. I would buy another firearm from Buds without hesitation. I have nothing negative to say about the gun or the service from Buds.

Fit and finish on this gun is perfect. This is my second Dan Wesson and I will buying a third (ECO). You cannot beat DW's product at the price they deliver it for. This gun is super accurate and a dream to carry. It is easy to conceal and the bobtail makes it even more concealable. The trigger breaks at a very crisp 3.75-4lb. No MIM parts and only quality components from companies such as EGW and ED Brown and in house parts from DW. Transaction with Buds is once again super smooth, delivered to my FFL with no issues.

I've owned it a little over 1 year now. I STILL think this is the best value in 1911's out there. Fit and finish are better than expected. So far, zero failures of any kind. I would recommend this to anyone.
