CZ-USA had many requests to produce a Commander-sized 1911 in 9mm. In response, they've revived one of the early Dan Wesson 1911 models with a twist…
They have combined the best features from two of our most popular models, the Bobtail Commander and the CCO. The new Guardian has an anodized aluminum bobtail frame and an aluminum mainspring housing to help reduce printing when carrying concealed and make it comfortable enough for full-time carry. The Duty Black finished Commander-length slide and alloy frame give it just the right feel and balance. If you are looking for a lightweight Commander-sized 1911 in 9mm, .38 Super or .45 ACP, don’t pass up the Guardian.

Good service from Bud's but both the pistol and my experience with Dan Wesson "customer service" was nothing but an expensive hassle. First, the gun is extremely overpriced for what it is: a production 1911 with an aluminum frame. The build quality of my Kimber Aegis 9mm was better, and it cost several hundred dollars less. The gun was neither marked nor reduced as a blem, but the slide finish has a spot that was missed by the finishing process (bare steel). The slide had terrible machine chatter which gouged up the barrel hood and lugs like nothing I've ever seen in 41 years of gun ownership.

DW "repaired" the gun without my authorization by rigging the barrel fitting so that it didn't fully lock up with the slide barrel lugs, simply changing the link size, polishing already fitted barrel lugs and ruining the lock up, rather than simply replacing the slide and barrel like most any other company would do. When I objected to what they did to rig my gun and requested either a new gun or a proper repair, they responded that there was nothing wrong with it, and that they merely "did some fluff and buff" in order to placate me.

From what I have read (and why I bought this), if you get a "good Dan Wesson," it is very good. Unfortunately, when you get a lemon Dan Wesson, they don't stand behind it, and treat you as if you were trying to take food out of their children's mouths. Not recommended.

This is truly an amazing gun to own and shoot. I put 200 rounds through it yesterday with 1 FTF (assuming break in period issue) but beyond that minor hiccup I was deadly accurate with this bad boy. This gun makes me look like a better shooter than I am. This is definitely the most I've ever spent on a handgun, but after shooting it, I realized it was worth every penny!

I saw this pistol at the NRA Convention in Charlotte and waited months for them to hit the stores. Budsgunshop.com had the first one I saw and I bought it using the lay away option. Smooth and easy transaction just like all other firearms I have purchased from Buds.

The pistol is first-rate. I wanted a commander-size 9mm and this one is a beauty. Fit and finish are excellent. You can feel the quality and the craftsmanship in this pistol. I only have 100 rounds though it, but it has been a dream to shoot so far. Fine trigger feel, very little recoil, and very good sights. Comes in a nice box with two magazines, a bushing wrench, a lock, etc.

All considered, I am very pleased with this purchase. Tom S.
