Product Description

We?ve had many requests to produce a Commander-sized 1911 in 9mm. In response, we?ve revived one of the early Dan Wesson 1911 models with a twist?

We 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.

New for 2014 is a variant in .38 Super.

Features

  • Bobtail Butt Profile, The Bobtailed frame may be non-traditional, but many prefer its feel in the hand as well as the reduced frame size that results in less printing while carrying concealed.

  • Fixed Night Sight, A Novak-style snag-free sight with tritium self-illuminated vials.

  • Frontstrap 25 LPI Checkering, Sharp, 25 LPI checkering, giving plenty of grip without being too aggressive.

  • Medium Solid Trigger, This is a slightly shorter length trigger with serrated face.

  • Night Sight, Novak-style and snag-free, these three-dot night sights have tritium vials that are always illuminated.

  • Smooth Mainspring Housing, The absence of checkering allows for a snag-free carry experience.

  • Tactical Hammer, The skeletonized hammer helps to reduce weight and maintains the clean look of the pistol.

  • Traditional Cut, The traditional cut keeps the lines of the traditional 1911 slide with a dustcover swoop.
