I've been looking at the Valor all week at my local gun shop, deciding on whether to pay the $1599.00 price tag. I walked in today at lunch and they were having a 4th of July sale and the Valor was marked down $400.00. Needless to say it now has a new home. Love the fit and finish, and the trigger is remarkable. I'd like to replace the stock thin rubber grips and get a nice set of thin diamond cocobolo (rosewood) grips to compliment and dress up the brushed stainless finish. Any suggestions on websites to look at? Other color grip suggestions would also be appreciated. BTW, research on this forum led me to the valor...Thanks...Jim Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
