Dan Wesson Valor VBOB Twins

I have been looking at Dan Wesson's for a long time and finding most of the time the ones I like to be overpriced or at least more than I wanted to invest. I decided what I wanted/needed last October when Dan Wesson announced the Valor and several other popular models would be discontinued. Guess what happened, yep everyone wanted one and the prices went up. Both of these was way under the current going/street price. Bottom Valor is .45acp, top right is 9mm. The 9mm was brand new in box from GunsInternational and the .45 was slightly loved from a upstanding 1911Addict forum member.
I dribbled a little BreakFree on the rails and they are super smooth and slick as glass. Will they shoot better than the Kimber's? I don't know but they are smooooth!

Congratulations Arland, My Vigil Commander 9mm has been 100% reliable and is one hellava shooter. It’s a well made 1911. Good luck.

Arland, you're out of control!

I love it! Great score there buddy. I'm also liking to have 'matched' pistols in nine and .45. No real reason, just seems like a good idea (read: fun).

I'm also available for adoption.....you won't have time to fondle and shoot all those nice 1911's you have now.
