    up to you.
    they are going from Ed Brown parts to their own, if that makes a difference.

    For a Valor, I would get it now. The biggest change for 2010 is that all models will now have forged frames - something the Valor has had all along. There are other nice changes, but I'm not sure there is a dollar-for-dollar improvement in the gun over the 2009 model.

    I had been looking to buy a Valor last year but I had some health issues I had to deal with, now things are better and started to look again and wasn't sure if I needed to hurry to buy one before the new models came out. I have decided to get the 2010 model for no other reason than it seams to be as good if not better so no hurry to buy the one I was looking at now.
    Thank for your help in this post and other posts on this forurm.

    I would wait. You'll pay a few $100 more, but you will get a better overall weapon - better fire control parts, thumb safety, finish, rear sight, higher front strap checkering....

    I have a 2009 Valor and plan on getting a 2010 model as well. Of course, I will wait until there are few out there to hear the reviews, but I'm pretty confident that the reviews will be very positive.
