    Do you guys think DW quality control is going downhill? I have had 11 flawless DW pistols and I think they are the best value for the dollar. Have things changed ? Those of you that have a newer Valor and have had an older Valor what are your thoughts in comparison of the two? i have three or...

    I consider myself lucky to have access to private land to shoot. Though it is not mine, it is my friend and neighbor’s, and I more or less keep an eye on it as he is gone sometimes for a year or more at a time. It is a heckuva hike, about 600 vertical feet in a half mile if you believe the...

    I am reluctantly offering up my LNIB (never been fired) Dan Wesson Limited Edition Government Valor, chambered in 45 ACP. Prior to purchasing this last year, I contacted DW Customer Service to confirm this model has a carbon steel slide and frame. The slide is blued (not Duty Treat) and the...

    As the title states, if you could buy 1 Dan Wesson in 2021, would you buy a used Guardian, or a NIB duty coat Valor VBob? Price difference pre-haggling is $150, meaning the NIB Valor Bob is $150 more. I don’t mind waiting on shipping for the used Guardian, and the Valor VBob would be a long...

    A week or so ago, I started a thread about my gift to myself this year, a DW Valor, Limited Edition, blued slide and Case Color Hardened frame. I received many kudos from fellow Addicts and I appreciated all of them. I mentioned that I had ordered some Mammoth Ivory grips from @SKGRIPS and...

    After having sold my Valkyrie a couple of years ago, I’ve been out of the 1911 game and have been looking hard at the Valor Commanders w/bull barrel listed on GB. At that price point it was getting tempting to stretch the budget a little more, so, I decided to do the opposite and buy one of the...

    I’ve been in the market for a DW 9mm commander for some time, and in my hunt for the best deal, I’ve come across a used Silverback in 10mm for $1600 shipped. It does have a small blemish on the bottom of the guide rod area, but other than that looks barely used. About a year ago I had the hots...

Looked at DW, Fusion and Colt Combat but would have to adjust the Mainspring housing to make it bobtail($200-$300). Thoughts? Thanks...

    I want to thank all who commented and supplied leads on my WTB post last week. A big thanks to @WVsig for supplying me with this lead. And another big thanks to @gtnc for parting with this beauty and making a seamless transaction. If I had opted for overnight delivery and my FFL was quicker in...
