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!

Awesome 1911. Well made with excellent fit and finish. Would have thought it was a custom 1911 rather than a semi-custom 1911. I got my money's worth, especially when compared to other commercial 1911s. 150 rounds of 230 gr round ball so far and no bobbles. Of course Bud's is excellent. Took a little longer than other guns that I have ordered from them. Willing to order from them again should I find the need for more.

I purchased this Dan Wesson VBob last month. The pistol is the nicest 1911 I've had and I've had plenty including $2000 plus from a legendary smith. This VBob is better built. The gun is more accurate than I am. I followed all the break in instructions and the gun has been flawless. Do yourself a favor and check one out.
Buds was great to deal with. My order was processed e check and shipped within 6 business days. No problem and great price.

This was a totally painless purchase and I would not hesitate to buy from Bud's again!

As for the gun...I was a bit hesitant to buy such an expensive pistol and as my first 1911 to boot. Even with the price tag, it is ranked among other 1911's with much higher price tags and I totally understand why. It feels awesome in the hand and has the feel of PURE QUALITY! I have only been able to put 200 rounds through it but of those 200, I had ZERO malfunctions and it was exceptionally accurate. I shot better with the Vbob than I have with virtually any other handgun to date. I have been following the break-in procedures outlined by Dan Wesson and all I can say is that this pistol is a keeper and I think I may be a full convert to the 1911 platform. Thanks again to Bud's! Their reputation is well known and it's all true!

Hands down the finest firearm I own. The fit and finish is second to none. If you are trying to figure out how to come up with 3000+ to buy a custom 1911, do yourself a favor and try the Dan Wesson valor series first. Use the money you save on mags and ammo. You will not be disappointed!

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!!
