This is my first 1911 45acp. Fit and finish is as good as you could want. This gun is a shooter! I ran 100 rounds through it without a single hiccup. If you have soft hands, I could see where the grips and front checkering might cause some chaffing after extended shooting, but provides a sure and repeatable grip. This is an excellent gun and I highly recommend it.

I had to wait a week till the item was shipped which was unusual for Buds but it was shipped in the time allotted. The pistol is awesome. I took it to the range and put 300 rounds through it using cheap ammo and had one failure to feed which I blamed on the ammo. The sights take getting used to but once figured out the pistol was a tack driver. Great Gun

Buds process worked very well, gun arrived unmolested, and the weapon was all it was supposed to be. Dan Wesson gets an A+ for product production.

This pistol is as magnificent as all the reviews on the web say it is. It is beautifully machined inside and out, and every part is fitted to perfection. It's super tight, but not so tight that it's difficult to operate. The slide appears to be lapped, the trigger is perfect for a combat pistol, being crisp and as light as I would want for it's purpose. The grip fits perfectly in the hand, with plenty of traction without feeling like a wood rasp. The finish isn't's a metal treatment on the stainless, and it looks like a soft matt blue. If I had to nit, the underside of the thumb safety is a bit sharp, and I wish the edge had been broken like every other corner on the pistol. Still, a minor issue. It is an awesome gun, and though I suppose the quality may seem subtle to some, it feels night and day different compared to mid-priced production 1911s. It's pricey, but a great value.

The Valor I recieved was NIB condition BUT it was manufactured in 2010... No where in the web writeup was this indicated... It is new weapon just not BRAND NEW... My only concern is has DW changed anything on the Valor since this one was made (2010) and why am I paying 2012 prices for a 2010 gun...? Buds customer service is looking into this for me... Buds did a GREAT job keeping me informed all along the way form the start on the Valor Waiting List (i was on the Wait List for 3 1/2 months) through purchasing, shipping, and delivery to my local FFL... I have purchased many items on the web and will definitely get my future business... Great folks to work with, Very Good Web Site...! Thomas L, Battle Creek, Michigan

My first 1911. I have shot others, Kimbers mostly and this Dan Wesson shoots better, looks better and just feels awesome (don't get me wrong, the Kimbers are impressive guns too). I have 500 rounds through it now, I have had minor issues with loading jams (8/400 times clean and 8/100 times dirty), I think I have to break the magazine springs in more. No ejection problems and no misfires. These are my favorite sights! You will not see the glow until it is really dark but the white outlines are visible until it is really dark anyway, great design. The finish is beautiful, I am showing some wear now on the slide latch catch point and one slider under the firing pin area under the side, it is turning a copper color (not through the coating but maybe copper is one of the layers under the black?). Fit cannot be better, it looks and feels like a custom gun, no slop anywhere but everything moves like it's supposed to. I have shot Winchester and Brazers brass and the Brazers is half as dirty as the Winchester bulk ammo. Overall, this is an amazing handgun, you get what you pay for, so depending on what else you want you may be just fine with a Kimber Custom II, or Stainless II or maybe that Remington 1911, but if you want the last 1911 you will ever need/want, this is it. Also Buds is awesome, timely and professional, keep up the good work! Matt
