Dan Wesson had never caught my eye (not big into shiny BBQ
guns, but when the Valor came out, I read a LOT of good things about it and
finally got to handle one at the 2009 IDPA Nationals at Matt Mink's CZ Booth he
had set up. I am embarrassed to admit I hadn't really heard of Matt Mink
before, not being a big CZ fan, but he is quite a nice guy and a dealer to boot.
Bought something from him on the spot, and told him when he gets the Valor in he
was expecting (only allocated one), I'd buy it.
It is an incredibly well put together 1911, just as all
the review had said, finally a pistol that lived up to the hype. Terrific
value for what you get. Here's a great review:
