    Hello,

    I had been wanting a Valor 9mm blue, then the discontinuance was announced and they were gone. There is currently one on GB with a short spur hammer, which I've never seen. Just wondered if any of you DW guys had any experience with them or if this was special order or it's just been replaced. Gun is supposed to be unfired...

    On their website it shows a skeletonized hammer on the blue Valor just like the Duty Treat and stainless ones. Don't know if there was a run of special blued Valors with that hammer or not. It is marked used so ask the seller if it was changed out (looks like an A2 one) as this would be my guess that it was.

    You sure it’s not an A2 cause the A2 blued comes with a short spur hammer.

    Yep, I'd call the shop and ask, looks to be Wade's in Bellevue WA. Sights look like Valor not A2 but the hammer is wrong, they list as 01864 but that shouldn't be a spur hammer.

    I would guess somebody special ordered a Valor with an A2 hammer. Actually, it looks kinda cool to me.
