I have found one that can be mine if I decide to do it. The only thing is I'm going to have to trade my DW CBOB for it. I don't have a problem with doing that as it would replace my CBOB as my EDC. I would rather try to sell it outright on GB or GA as I've seen them fetching over $1300 for the DW Classic. I even saw a '08 go for $1500!
Anyways. I'm just amazed at the quality of this new Valor SS Bobtail. I've been reading many of the reviews on 1911forum and they've been getting giddy over the amazing quality that Keith and the crew at DW has been able to pull of and for such an amazing price! I mean this thing had the nicest feeling trigger of any production or semi-custom 1911 at any price. I held a Nighthawk T3 next to it and a EB Exec Carry also. I couldn't tell what the extra grand was really going for? If the others were maybe $300 or $400 more, then I'd say well maybe they're worth that. Not for what I see in them for this amount.
There has been a lot of talk about how the folks at DW were going down a loosing path with this move, but now that I've experienced the VBOB. I'd have to say they've really out done themselves! These are guns that if you put a name like Wilson or EB on the side and asked $2500 for them... They'd sell! I'm excited to try to make the move and have one of these beauty's in my hands. I'll post pics if I can make the deal happen.
