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

I have owned Kimbers and Springfield Armory 1911's and while nice, the Valor is just that much better. The fit and finish are superb and the gun is tight, but not overly tight. Trigger is crisp with no creep. There doesn't appear to be any tool marks outside or in. I didn't know if I would like the slim grips but the VZ's are nice and grippy. 25LPI checkering is perfect. All the sharp edges are nicely dehorned. Racking the slide is like butter.

If I had a complaint it could only be that the thumb safety is a little sharp on the top paddle. Dan Wesson should round the safety a little bit better. There is also a little side to side play in the grip safety, but it works and is fitted perfectly to the tangs. I had to take some 1,000 grit sandpaper and sand the guide rod and inside the recoil spring plug, to get rid of a gritty feeling/noise while racking the slide.

My valor was made in 10/13 and has what appears to be an EGW grip safety and not an Ed brown, but it is a nice part. The Heinie straight eight sights are nice and bright, but I'm not sure I'm personally going to be able to get used to them.

This was my first transaction with buds and it went smoothly.

I've purchased several guns from Buds and have always been happy with the price and service. After ordering a Dan Wesson Valor in Stainless I was having second thoughts if I really needed to have a 1911, but after receiving it, holding it, trying the trigger, all I can say is Ohhhhhhhhhh Baby! This is the first handgun I've owned that I won't have to have a trigger job done on. This isn't a gun, it's a swiss watch jewel. The feel of this gun is wonderful and I consider it to be among my finest handguns. I highly recommend a Dan Wesson Valor to anyone who is looking for a top 1911...perhaps the best production 1911 gun on the market. I've heard it beats many of the custom guns costing twice as much. Buy one and you won't be disappointed.

First, I would just like to say that Buds was great. Customer service was exquisite, and they processed and shipped my order in a very timely matter. The transaction date to the date it arrived to my FFL was 4 business days. Purchase was seemless and I will definitely do business with Buds again.

The Valor was received in perfect condition. Build quality was superb and it came as described on the website. I have not been able to shoot it yet, but the gun is flawless. Thanks again Buds.
