1st 1911: valor, trp or specialist
I'm really into striker fired pistols; but work has been good, and I'm going to leap into the world of 1911s. I'm looking at the three pistols in the subject. The guy I buy all my guns from is steering me towards the wessons. What do the baws of the outdoor board think?

TIA

You can't go wrong with any of the 3, but I'm partial to the Dan's. I have a Specialist 9mm.

ETA: the real answer is get one of each

Going bobtail or not? The DW is a sweet 1911!

Having owned all three, I would go with the valor unless you really need a rail. Of course, the DWs are about $600 more...

Thanks guys, I'm set on the valor. My question now is whether the "duty coat" is worth a $300 premium over the stainless? My lgs can get me the valor in duty coat for 1699 plus tax. It ends up being about the same as buying it from buds once I factor in the $25 ffl. I just hate paying tax of any kind.

My Specialist has the coating and while I haven't really put it to the test or ever will. It is cheaper to get one now with the coating than to wait and decide you want it later. I have a buddy that has a stainless Specialist and he wants to get his coated now. As far as being "worth it" from what I understand you aren't paying $300 for a $50 paint job.

Valor, unless you need a rail. I really like the duty treatment - my v-bob has it. I'm trying to decide between duty treated or blued valor for my next one.
