I have a brand new current production 5" SS Valor coming to my local FFL after reading reviews on it. Forged frame and slide, match barrel and bushing, tool steel sear, hammer and disconnector, Heinie tritium sights, Ed Brown thumb safety,slide stop and beavertail and slim-line grips. I'll probably change the slim-lines and bushings for a regular set of grips. Everything else is surely staying put. So who owns or has owned a DW Valor? Accuracy,reliability, part wear and anything else you can think of would be appreciated. Not my pistol but its exactly what I'm getting I went with this over a TRP since it has 25lpi on the front strap instead of 20lpi and a normal 70 series setup instead of a 9mm/38super firing pin. There is also the fact that it has zero MIM and a clean slide. I don't mind FCS but I have enough models with them already. Never had an MIM part break but if its the same price without it then why not? The Valor and TRP are the max I will spend on a 1911 and with the amount of care given to the Valor I really question why companies charge more except in the case or bevel/melt treatments and finishes but even then its not worth twice the price. According to CZ themselves, there are zero MIM parts: http://cz-usa.com/press-releases/34/ Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
