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.

    My wife bought me a DW Guardian for my 70th birthday! (Happy Birthday for sure!!!) It is the most natural pointing pistol I own, and I have several CZ’s. Rapid accurate target acquisition, silky smooth trigger and so easily concealed, For a CCW, it is perfect! Makes me wish I turned 70 again soon!
