The Valor is loaded with features, including a forged 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 Valor 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!

The Valor is a Government full size 1911, but also comes in a Bobtail Commander version known as the V-Bob.

This is a high quality and very accurate weapon.
Mine arrived defect free and it is now I guess officially broken in with 500 flawless functioning rounds.
I have read some amateur reports of galling but I personally believe that is operator care malfunction.
Use the supplied oil during break in which should last at least ten cleanings then use manufacturer recommended oil sparingly.

The Dan Wesson Valor is now the most well-crafted gun I own. It shot flawlessly at the range using low-cost Armscor ammo.I look forward to shooting it for many years to come.

Excellent firearm. 300 rounds with only a single malfunction in the first few mags fired. Very reliable. I had to take a star off for DW's customer service because there was a nasty burr in the frame (that doesn't affect function) and some rust spotting on the barrel which arrived liberally coated in oil, although the gun was very recent manufacture and sold as a premium gun, not as a blem, and DW didn't want to hear about it. The pistol's overall build is tight as a drum, all tolerances seem to be absolutely perfect.

Fit and Finish is really good. The trigger pull on this 1911 is the best of any 1911 that I own (All production 1911s). I have not had a chance to get it to the range yet, but I expect that if accuracy follows the rest of what I have seen so far, this one will be a keeper.

I now own 4 1911s!!! sig scorpion, Springfield trp, Wilson CQB, and now a Dan Wesson Valor. I shot all 4 today (1100 rounds Winchester 230 gr fmj and Blazer 230 fmj) All 4 guns are dead accurate but the Valor gave me the best groups. My Wilson has the best trigger out of the group and the sig is the best value My TRP shoots great but was the only one that jammed on me (twice). The build quality of the DW is every bit as good as my Wilson slide to frame is tight and the controls are excellent. If you want Wilson type quality at a fraction of the price the Valor fits the bill. My TRP has always had a jamming issue (1 jam every 300 rounds or so) and will be sold in the near future. If you cant afford a valor take a look at the Sig Scorpion it is a solid reliable well built 1911
