oh spit - found something on GB I'm interested in and guess who the seller is.

I sent this inquiry:
"Very interested but I notice a large number of negative reviews over the past 6 months..... 63 negatives is concerning. How can I trust that you'll ship if I send you money?"

D&L Shooting & Supplies (DL Supplies Gunbroker) review history on GB indicates a downward trend. Sad to see given strong reviews in the past.

Someone please let me know if I'm confusing names. If that's the case, I'd want to delete this post.

Just checked my Thursday's email (it's a little after midnight) and low and behold, there was a UPS 2nd Day Air Shipping Notification that a package from D&L is scheduled to be delivered to my gun dealer's shop on 31 August 2020!!! Amazing is all I can say right now.

I'll keep you informed until the Valor is actually in hand. Probably won't be able to pick it up until next Thursday based on my work schedule and the gunshop's hours. So, only one more week at the most. Hey, after a 3 month wait, 7 more days isn't very long!

That is fantastic!

The help wanted ad says they need someone who:

MUST BE KNOWLEDGEABLE IN FIREARMS
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE
ANSWER PHONES
GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS
PROCESS AND CASH OUT ORDERS

That could be because no one there now obviously knows how to do any of these. Maybe the Dumbasses & Losers will get their stuff together and not have you wait for...

Okay, so I'm pretty sure there isn't going to be a next time.

I haven't followed this thread. Were you aware of the 63 negative feedbacks before you entered into a contract with the thief err seller? If not, why not?

No, I was not. I saw the multiple thousands of positive feedbacks which made me feel D&L is a good seller. Plus, I bought from them before without incident.

Finally some really great news! My dealer called today saying that the Dan Wesson arrived at his shop. On Thursday evening I will pick it up and am looking forward to ending this three month long drawn out mini-series! Stay tuned for hopefully what will be the final nail in this thread's coffin.

BTW, I also got a call from the lady at the RI Attorney General's Office asking whether D&L came through with the "product" yet.... No, not YET was my answer, because it was before the dealer called. I'll give her a holler after the Valor is actually in my possession.

Go look at it and inspect it thoroughly tomorrow....Your dealer will allow you to do that........I bet their free gift was 1 extra magazine.

My bet is it will be a 5% discount on a future order over $1000.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

It's here and it's now offically mine! This whole ordeal feels almost like I experienced a miracle first hand. Went to the dealer's and picked it up last night about 8.30pm.

I have to honestly say, this Valor is a beautiful piece of workmanship! To date, my only experiences with 1911s involves two Series 80 Colt Combat Commanders (one is a 9mmm the other a 45) which I still have. The first thing I noticed was how tight and crisp the slide and controls are. The trigger is outstanding! No grit, no take up, nothing negative in any way, shape or form. Simply put: it's light and crisp.

One of the first things I noticed was the lack of the barrel "rattling" when the slide is retracted and left in the open position. Another thing notable is the heavier Match barrel. There is no removable barrel bushing and recoil spring plug which is all new to me compared to the Colts. That's going to take some getting used to when field stripping. The manual indicates using a paper clip to do so because of the full length guide rod, which, personally, I'm not going to be a fan of. I like the old style better without the need of an extra "tool" for take down...... It's going to take some getting used to, but "it is what it is"! I was always of the understanding that Commander-sized Valors came with with the removable bushing/recoil spring plug set up. Did they switch over somewhere along the way?

Ok, now to the extra goodies D&L promised. The goodies are: a range bag with the FN logo, a T-Shirt with the Mossberg logo, and two NIB blued 1911 mags made by Metalform. Now, here's a kicker! Those two
mags are 9 rounders for 9mm pistols!!! LOL. I should bitch, but I'm just glad this whole f****** nightmare is over! Since I have a 1911 in 9mm, I at least have a couple more spares. BTW, my Valor came with two 8 rd stainless steel Checkmate mags.

So, this is the proverbial last nail in the coffin! Thanks so much to all of you who followed this thread and a special thanks to you guys who reached out to D&L on my behalf! I firmly believe that was the real game changer as well as the input from the RI AG's Office, which got involved by reaching out to D&L. Take care folks, and I'll be doing a range report on the Valor which you can follow on the handguns forum!

Para: thank you so much for providing the shooting community with a great website. There are so many decent, helpful, supportive people here with a great wealth of firearms knowledge. It's great to be a part of it.

Kashi sent me some pics. It's sweet.
It looks like a Limited Edition Valor Commander--Stainless Steel, Bull barrel, Amerigo Night sights, Cocobolo Heartwood grips.
From what he posted and looking at his pics, I believe that's what he recieved==Limited Edition Bull Barrel Valor.
