I found a used stainless Dan Wesson Valor w/box for $1179. It looks great, except for some very slight surface rust. Very minimal. Most likely due to greasy fingers of store patrons (saw the same thing on a Ruger SR1911 in another shop). I may be able to talk the price down a little. From what I can find on Gunbroker and various forums, it looks like a good price. I tend to prefer black/dark guns though.
I was originally looking at a MC Operator, TRP, and Colt Rail Gun, but did not expect to see this at this price. What opinions do you have?
The surface rust is on the muzzle end of the slide, but is so slight, my camera phone did not pick it up.
