Dan Wesson Guardian 9mm..I Own One
I own a Dan Wesson Guardian in 9mm. My experience with this pistol has been completely positive, this is without a doubt the most impressive 1911 platform pistol I've owned in 45 years of 1911 ownership. I'd hesitate to guess the number of 1911's I've owned both .45 and 9mm, but it has to be at least a dozen. The Dan Wesson Guardian exhibits "0" machine\manufacture marks, the fit is to very close tolerances, their Duty Finish, which I understand is a ceramic bonding, is absolutely flawless and tough as nails. After many many trips to the range and many hundreds of rounds run through the pistol, the finish shows "0" wear. I've not seen anything like it from any manufacturer. The old saying "You Get What You Pay For" is an understatement when it comes to the Guardian. In my humble opinion, it is the equal of most custom built 1911's out there costing $2000 and up. The parts that Dan Wesson does not make in house are sourced from the best in the business, no down level components live in this pistol.
