I recently picked up my Valor that I had Steve Owens @SteveO here in the forum work over for me. The work performed Mostly cosmetic but also some internal work and upgrades as well.

Initial impressions after taking it out of the box from My FFL were very impressive. All the machine work, blending, bead blast and polish work is excellent, very well executed and flows very well IMO. Gun feels great in hand as well no sharp edges everything smoothed and blended very well. Trigger is excellent as well very little take up and glass rod break 3.5# right on as requested.

The new thumb safety is very positive on and off no Muss no over travel and blended nicely to the frame. New barrel bushing is very tight to slide and barrel Close to Baer tight but not obnoxious like many Baers perfect IMO.

I put 200 rounds of Ball Ammo through it today. The pistol is a shooter shoots as well as any 1911 I own and runs just as well. I couldn’t be happier with the work that Steve performed on this gun and see him doing great things in the future. And have to say that he was a total pleasure thoughout the build and after. The turn around time was excellent as well but I’m sure it won’t stay that way forever. Just have to decide what to send next before he gets booked up ;). The below targets were shot at 10 and 20 yards standing unsupported. I’m am extremely happy with the results Steve was able to achieve. And will be sending him another pistol in the future.

I was even shocked at the finish when WWB sent me the pics.. It was cloudy and over cast here, no sun at all. And these darn Flourescents show about every little speck you could possibly see. I told him when I saw it, "Wow that finish" Not patting myself on the back, was actually shocked lol... It looks nearly ice blue.. crazy.. I will add a couple pics though lolAJ's Valor Completed 011.JPG AJ's Valor Completed 012.JPG AJ's Valor Completed 013.JPG
