I spent some much needed time at the shooting range yesterday (a la my dad's farm), and put some rounds through my Valor and my new CCO. The guns: 2008 Dan Wesson Valor 2009 Dan Wesson CCO The magazines: DW (Checkmate) 8 Round Tripp 8 Round Tripp 7 Round Wilson 47DCB 8 Round Wilson 47DC 8 Round DW (Checkmate) 7 Round - Officers Wilson 47OXCB 7 Round - Officers The ammo: Winchester White Box 230gr FMJ DoubleTap 230gr FMJ Match DoubleTap 230gr Gold Dot JHP DoubleTap 200gr Gold Dot JHP All shooting was performed 2 handed (left hand) at 20 yards. After every 8 magazines shot through in succession I applied FP10 to the rails and barrel hood. First I shot the Valor. I put a total of 150 rounds through it using a mix of the above ammo and all mags (except obviously the Officers mags). As expected, the Valor was absolutely flawless. By far my favorite pistol to shoot. Here is a picture of my target after 3 magazines: I experienced absolutely zero failures of any kind. This pistol is very accurate, extremely reliable, and just a joy overall to shoot. It functioned perfectly with all mags, and all ammo. The 200gr DoubleTap loading is pretty hot and it was noticeable when shooting it. Here's a target after like 8 magazines (can't remember): And here's a target of 4 magazines full of JHPs, the DoubleTap 230 and 200 gr Gold Dot offerings: By this time my shooting arm was getting a little sore and I was developing a bit of the "shakes" but I wanted to continue with my CCO, so here it goes! The CCO is really a nice little pistol to shoot. I definitely enjoy it but I prefer shooting the Valor and CBOB I think because of the steel frame. Accuracy exhibited in the following targets was due more to my own lack of ability and fatigue than the gun. I have to comment here on the magazines, I bought the Wilson Officers mags prior to reading comments about how they would not seat properly in the CCO. I attempted to fix this by grinding off the top of the steep basepad, and they would successfully fit into the weapon, so I used them - to much dismay. The last round in both of the Wilson mags would fail to feed each time. After several iterations of this I discarded them into my range bag and continued on with the factory DW 7 round mags, and also all of the Gov't 8 round mags (Tripp, DW, Wilson). Aside from that one episode, everything ran completely flawlessly. All mags and all ammo fed and functioned 100%. Here's a target after the first several mags with the CCO: And here's another one after I settled down a bit: I will say that with BOTH pistols, the grip screws were loosening and backing out by the time I was done shooting. I tightened them and in my cleaning process I applied just a touch of Loctite Blue 242 to them to hopefully prevent this in the future.
