    Valor or other DW in 9mm

    I'm considering a Valor in 9mm. Any thoughts? Anyone shooting a DW in 9mm that can comment on reliability?

    Open ended questions I know. Just trying to get a feel for want I might be getting into.

    Thanks

    Jim

    Had a chance to handle a Valor at Cabelas over the weekend. Black, 45, nice gun. There was an Ed Brown Special Forces next to it; the Valor was equally as nice.

    I'd still like to hear from DW 9mm owners.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I have a 9mm Guardian. So far so good. Fit and finish is excellent, and only a couple of FTE while I break it in.
    Im happy with the quality and am sure I would and WILL by another DW. Had a couple of revolvers in the past
    and nothing NOT to like about them.

    I have the ECO 9mm & besides some issues during the break in period (first 200 rounds had numerous jams) this gun has been flawless up to date with over 3K rounds thru it & has become my every day ccw.

    Just purchased a Silverback in 9 mm. Lubed it up with Wilson Ultima Lube Universal and it ate up 60 rounds of Blazer Brass 9 mm without a hitch.

    I plan on running another 60 to 100 rounds through it this week and no I'm not planning on cleaning it for a least a few hundred rounds.

    It's been a while since I've posted, had computer problems.

    I didn't purchase the Valor, elected not to but a friend did buy one. SS, 9mm, gov't gun. Very nice, shoots well and one of the better builds that I've seen. I think DW is doing a great job and would certainly go to DW when I decide on another 9mm 1911.
