    So just received my new to me D.W. Valor today and I am one happy camper! Clean as a pin and exactly as described. Must give props to dds51968 from whom I purchased the gun. He had a little trouble getting traction here as a newer guy with no feedback. Well that is no longer the case and in my case the sale went exactly as all sales should. Happy buyer, happy seller and zero glitches. Now on to the obligatory pics!



    Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

    I have a Guardian & Specialist but really need the Valor to fill the spot in between them.... by "spot" I mean the empty slot in the safe. :)

    Thanks to all for the replies! This is my third DW in a relatively short time frame. I see another pattern forming:). I like the grips also. Pretty sure they will stay there.

    Ain't that the truth, I'm with ya brother!

    Beautiful pistol! I love my Valor Limited as well. You’re aware of the cleaning solvent dilemma, correct?

    Every day you own a new pistol and don't shoot it, it's a sin.

    Just bought a PM-9. Valor in 45 is next!
