  1. I had a Springfield loaded .45, perhaps not a fair comparison to the RO? It was an okay pistol. Dan Wesson slide and bushing fit is much tighter. DW uses all machined internal parts and the trigger out of the box is very good. Comments on the RO (I see) always shooting it for a time than take it to a GS to have the parts installed the DW already has. I purchased the 9mm Valor and PM9 used, and I mean slightly used for $1000 each. They have been reliable, excluding sights they have everything I need and want out of the box. My ability to shoot them in USPSA is lacking and believe until I am an A class competitor they will serve me well. I bought the .45 Valor Duty Treat new, it was $1600. At that price point maybe a Les Baer (used) is a better value? The Valor is a great pistol and it too has not failed a single time. I case gauge every round, use Tripp and Wilson magazines exclusively, that probably helps also.
  2. Second JNW, my PM9 and Valors in both .45 and 9mm are 100% reliable out of the box. I added magwells to each, Dawson FO front sights, 10-8 rear on the Valors and milled the PM9 rear sight notch to .125" wide. Dan Wesson 1911's are a very good value pistol.

    Shadow2 Tune Up WOW!!

    I had the opportunity to shoot my Shadow 2 with CGW pro kit installed, WOW! My problem before installing the pro kit was the first SA shot after the heavy DA first shot. No problem now.
  6. I just made C class in single stack after a year of D. My equipment is reliable and reloads work quite well. It helped getting my sights worked out, thank you CHE-LEE for the excellent article on sights! I'm not really dry firing yet, rather working on my draw and consistent grip. My stage planning is still still a work in progress. One year in and having a great time.

    Shadow2 Tune Up WOW!!

    I installed the CGW pro kit with reach reductionin my Shadow 2 today. It took me a few hours but the result is excellent. The disconnector required no tuning.

    Shadow2 Tune Up WOW!!

    I have the CGW pro kit and still researching installation. Are there particular videos, instructions you think best? Thank you.
  9. I have a PM 9 and 9mm Valor and I prefer the Valor, it just seems smoother to me.
  10. One of (8) 9mm Tripp Cobra mags purchased this year has failed. The spring looks fine but the follower gets hung up. I looked for warranty information but can't find how to go about having it repaired.
  11. I'm with Yeti, Sport Pistol is great powder. 125 Blue bullet 4.1 g Sport Pistol 1.140 OAL Works well in my Dan Wesson PM-9 and Valor.
  12. Dan Wesson PM-9 or Valor with Duty treat finish.
  13. Found this forum researching Dillon reloading equipment. I've shot a couple GSSF matches and Friday Night Steel matches. I'm considering IDPA and (or) USPSA. This forum is a great resource for those considering reloading and so much more. I ended up buying a Dillon 550 and enjoy time spent at the reloading bench.
