Its like buying a car right off the lot for 35% off or whatever. There are guys that buy them , want another , have money and do this craziness. I see it all the time.

    Very true. There are typically several very nice 1911s on there for really good deals, itís about the only reason Iím a member. The Pro, as nice as it is, seems a bit like youíre paying for what it is, instead of the features.

    There seems an abundance of folks that on Addicts that are more focused on acquiring the latest/greatest, than actually shooting.
    Just my sense. It is a great outlet for picking up some really fine pistols, very reasonably.

    Oh my! 1911addicts is dangerous! To the op looking to buy, definitely start your search there. Still, a Dan Wesson will shoot every bit as nice as any of the higher priced, custom guns your going to see.

    Depending on your carry preference, I’m a Valor guy through and through. As noted, it’s heavy! Which is probably why it shoots so smooth. Ive owned a Valor and recently picked up a Specialist, with the duty finish. Never owned a Springer, but I have shot plenty and personally prefer the DW trigger - crisper, clean break and quick reset. Either way, you can’t go wrong. It’s a Dan Wesson!

    I own a VBOB (Valor Commander Bobtail) and a Vigil CCO (Commander barrel/slide, officer's frame). Quality wise both pistols are the same. Same parts, barrel, slide material, and tool steel parts. The big difference is of course frame material and sights. The Vigil has an aluminum frame and and Ameriglo front night sight. The rear sight is a Dan Wesson all blacked out rear.

    The Vigil also has the Duty Treat on the slide and in all honesty, when comparing the two, I like my Vigil more. I simply love the gun.

    How well does Dan Wesson stand behind their product after the 5 year warranty?
