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.

I own and operate a lot of handguns and rifles, from Taurus, Colt and Remington wheel-guns, to Sig Sauer, CZ', Beretta and Colt pistols;
and the Dan Wesson 1911 .45 Guardian, including fit/finish, handling and looks, is the finest one I own.

I was going to purchase a .45cal CZ . but, after agonizing a bit (a lot) over the $500.00 difference, I went for the Dan Wesson Guardian. And, I am glad I did after putting over 500+ rnds (450 hand-loads) downrange w/o a hiccup, as well as the other fine attributes of the Guardian, I am glad I kicked out the extra dough.

Per usual, Buds did a fine job of facilitating the purchase of this outstanding weapon.

This is one of my favorite handguns. Very light for a .45, the aluminum frame really makes a difference if you plan on carrying it all day. I took off the wood grips and put some tactical alumagrips on it. I also lightened the trigger to 3lbs. Other than that it is perfect. Magazines that came with it are first rate. I see the price went up though, I only paid $1200 for it 6 months ago..

The Guardian is the perfect carry gun. Great shooing gun I t shoots better than a person will every shoot. Shot 200 rounds no jams. Shot the red out of the target. A beautiful gun. Well balance and designed. The Guardian is well worth the money. You cant beat a Dan Wesson. My second Dan Wesson. Go for it. .

This is my second Dan Wesson 1911. The fit & finish on this pistol is superb. The black Duty Treatment looks and feels like it will last and last.

This is the perfect carry 1911. Lightweight (aluminum frame), bobtail, night sights, series 70 firing system (no extra firing pin safety parts to malfunction), no MIM parts, slim grips, checkered front strap, good trigger, good finish, GI length guide rod (no tool needed for field strip). After 1st trip to range, I am fully confident in this pistol. 200 rds fmj, 50 rds jhp. No failures. Absolutely worth the hard earned money, and no need to spend more or look elsewhere. Like I said, the perfect carry 1911.
