Just got back from the range with my DW 5" Valor. Fired in all 300 rounds WWB, 150 rounds Winchester Ranger T, and about 36 rounds of I don't know what they were. I took some pictures of the first four rounds fired. They were fired at a distance of 25 yards. Not too bad I guess for a glock guy. The trigger pull scared the *insert word here* out of me on the first shot, wasn't expecting it to fire yet. Anyway, this is a 4 shot group from a standing position, two went into the same hole on the top left one. First impressions: Although it kicks more than I'm used to with my 9mm, the sights line up pretty darn well and are easy to get back onto target for quick follow-up shots. From the Blackhawk CQC holster it draws fast and points naturally. It wasn't hard at all for me to transition from my Glock 19, which has been my EDC for the past three years, and the Beretta M9 which has been my duty weapon for the past 5, to shooting this. I've shot 1911 before, and I've owned a couple of them, to be specific, a 5" frankengun, a baer, a para ordinance, and a taurus. In my opinion, I got more gun value than what I paid for. Oh yea, and 0 malfunctions/stoppages during the entire course of fire, and the slide locked to the rear every time with the factory checkmate magazines as well as the wilson 47D magazines. Dan Wesson will receive my business again. I'd rate the DW Valor in the following Fit/Finish: 5/5 Accuracy: 5/5 Sights/Site Picture: 5/5 Recoil Controlability: 4/5 (But again, I've been a 9mm Glock guy for years) Reliability: 5/5 Fun Factor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Compared to the 1911s I've owned in the past, the DW Valor blows away everything, and I can't tell the slightest bit of difference between it and the Baer.
