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.

Paid for on a Tuesday and picked it up Thursday at my FFL in Cincinnati. This 1911 is just as great as all the reviews i've been reading and watching for a long time now. I had a Heritage model and I think that it is the best 1911 you can get for around $1,000.00 but i wanted the front strap checkering and a little nicer finish. The valor I found out is more than that. It is tighter than the Heritage I had and the overall quality is amazing. I shot it at the range today and had Zero malfunctions and I was very pleased that it made me seem like a better shooter than I am. I started with a ruger 1911 and sold that for a Sig traditional 1911 then traded that for a Heritage to sell that a get the Valor. Each one was better than the one before. I love this Valor.

Simply amazing 1911! No doubt the top production model. If you are looking for a top quality 1911 in the 1500$ range this is your handgun! Trigger job is beautiful and the tolerances are super tight fit & finish. Truly impressive piece.

Fit and finish on the Valor 1911 is high quality. Not a flashy firearm but it is very accurate. Trigger pull and break are consistent and predictable. Weight and balance are comfortable. Initial range work indicate that the firearm is dependable and accurate. Cleanup after range work was not difficult. I put both re-loads and factory ammo through the piece without issues. The firearm is as I expected for one at this price point.

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.
