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!

This is what first rate customer service looks like. I ordered on Saturday evening online with a question. I received update information the next day. I received a telephone response to my question first thing Monday morning. Order arrived on Thursday, a day earlier than projected. Excellent.

I will update on the pistol later.

I picked up the VBob today. I brought it home, stripped it, cleaned it up, lubed it and loaded 10 mags and took it out for test fireing.
I shot it at 10, 15 and 25 yards. The accuracy was good, and the trigger was crisp and light. On the Lyman digital scale the three pull average was 3.6#'s with no creep at all. I thought muzzle rise was noticably more than my 1911's with bull barrels and recovery not as quick but that could just be me. In 75 rounds I had 2 stove pipes and 2 failure to feed. I was useing the two DW mags, Kimbers and Wilson's.
I had never used straight 8 sights before. I thought they worked well though as another review said the rear sight gap is a little wide and caused me some accuracy problems. Now that it is dark I notice that the sights aren't very bright, but not a big concern.
I had one of these several years ago and really liked it and I think this one will grow on me more as I shoot it more.
Bud's was good as usual and delivery was super fast. I ordered it at 3:45 P.M. yesterday and picked it up at about 3:00 This was the 84th gun I have bought from Bud's since 2009 and this was definetly the fastest delivery ever.
Anyway, in my opinion, for what it is worth, this is a very nicely made pistol and worth the price if you like very well made and shooting 1911 style pistols.

Good gun, but not as accurate as I had expected / hoped. I have also had a few reliability issues (1 or 2 per 100 rounds, so nothing too bad).

This is the third gun I have purchased from buds. Always the best price I can find,and fast shipping!! This Dan Wesson v-bob is even better that I expected!! All the hype about Dan Wessons are well warranted! My favorite pistol now!!

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!!

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.
