CZ-USA 01926 Dan Wesson 1911 Valor 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Matthew P Date Added: Friday 18 May, 2012
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!
