I will play, my favorite is the v7, however i am really warming up to my v1lw the longer I have it. The lightweight is hard to beat, and with the same toughness if ya will as the std v1, it is a real winner. I bought the v7 because of the mfr and it is a DD but the new rail design was a real eye catcher at the time, still is imho.
Now I am trying to decide on which will be the next on my list. The v5 is calling quite loudly!! I still have a couple grandsons to buy for before it is to late. Praying it won't happen, but I consider it an investment. Like gold!
