Quick...is there any real difference in quality between Dan Wesson Valor or Specialist? Have an opportunity for a quick buy!

Not between those two models.

There may be a minor bit of difference in final fit/finishing between the higher end DWs and the less expensive "entry level" models (A2, Vigil, etc.).

As you may know, the Valor line has been discontinued by DW - if seeing a nice deal on a good example of a Valor, that might be an influencer.

Enjoy whichever you select, either would be a fine 1911.

Edited to add: be sure to post pics of your choice!

The Specialist is effectively a Valor with a rail.

And a magwell.

And different grips.

And an ambidextrous safety.

And a serrated top rib.

I have two Valors. They are outstanding examples of 1911dom. I would buy either with no regret.

True. I was thinking major difference and quality comparison. You summed it up better than I
