DW Guardian 9mm...a rare do-over
« on: July 17, 2017, 10:03:37 PM »
Had one, liked it a lot....sold it off a few years ago since I convinced myself I no longer wanted to partake of the 1911 world.  I just reacquired a new one, not easy to come by anymore at a reasonable price at least.  I have owned several 1911's most higher-end semi-customs, but this was the one I've really missed.  It has everything I wanted and still want in a 1911.....70 series internals, no MIM parts, commander style alloy frame, bobtail, match barrel, three dot night sights.....would prefer 30 LPI checkering but 25 LPI is very doable. It will be my only 1911 but a great one....AGAIN!   ;D   Anyone ever have a similar experience?

I've got a guardian in .45.  It's a wonderful carry piece and shoots phenomenally well.

Congratulations !!
Mine wasn't that similar though.
Back in late 80's I bought the Colt combat elite 1911, then sold it . Got away from the 1911's and went with Sig 220's.
Then some 25 plus years later, shot a 1911 again, researched alot of 1911's,then found that the CCO had everything I wanted in a 1911 as you mentioned, only I bought it in the middle of the gun grab  a couple years ago , so I paid to much,,,, But, that was the one for me.

Enjoy your new Guardian

Bad news........just found out it was stolen in shipment via FedEx........its a sad day.  A fairly regular tale from FedEx, haven't ever heard of one being stolen when shipped via USPS, though FedEx I do hear about fairly often.  :-\
