Disclaimer: I'm not a professional, but i did stay at a Holiday Inn a while back. :biglaugh: Ammo 150 rounds of Blazer Brass (115gr) 150 rounds of Remington green/white box (115gr) 50 rounds of Speer Gold-Dot (124gr +P) I also brought WWB, but unfortunately it was .45ACP and not 9mm. All ammo fed reliably, even during double and triple taps. Magazines The magazines that i bought were 2 of the following: Factory Dan Wesson (Check-Mate) mags Wilson Combat ETM's Metalform/Springfield 9mm. There were no issues with any of the magazines used. I'll use either the factory or Springfield magazines when I carry the Guardian since they are flush with the bottom of the grip/frame. Grip The Shadow grips and 25LPI frontstrap checkering provided adequate grip, though i prefer something with more bite. I have large hands and didn't find the slim grips to be too small. Since the MSH is smooth, i thought that i would want it checkered for better grip. I may replace it, but don't think it will be an issue. Sights The sights were Novak style 3 dot night sights, which is common on 1911's. The Guardian's POI (Point Of Impact) at 15yrds was right on top of the front sight, similar to the dot on an "i". The rear sight will get changed to a 10-8 rear. There is nothing wrong with the factory sights, I like all my 1911's to be similar Trigger The factory trigger is a medium curved Videki style trigger. Like other curved 1911 trigger's my finger started to get tender by the end of the range visit. I'll change the trigger out for my usual "Quack" (flat) trigger. Trigger weight was 3Lbs. 12oz. I'll measure the trigger again after the mythical 500rds. Slide Stop I usually don't use the slide stop as a slide release, but as I had mentioned in the photo review, the slide stop has a nice shelf on it as would make it easy to release the slide with the right-hand shooters thumb. The slide stop was easy to use when performing a slide lock reload and there were no feed issues when doing so. The slide stop is actually the original 10-8 slide stop design. Range Shooting the Guardian was as I expected. It ran without any problem's with the various mags and ammo used. The Guardian balanced nicely in the hand and even though it's an alloy frame, the recoil was minimal, even with the +P ammo. Double-Tap's and transitioning between target's seemed to be faster (I don't have a timer) than shooting my Kobra Carry, but this would make sense since it is a 9mm as opposed to a .45ACP. The spent cases ejected properly and I never got hit in the forehead by a hot case. Accuracy It's pretty darn accurate, it really is. Shooting was done un-supported with a "Combat Grip" and in a 2 handed isosceles stance. Here's a quick phone pic of the last 5 rounds (Gold-Dot) that i shot for the day at 15 yards. The the flyer was the 1st round. I believe i used the slide stop as a release to chamber the first round. I didn't shoot at 25 yards because there isn't any lighting that far back at the range i go to. Overall I feel that the Guardian is a great value. It's well built, reliable, accurate and priced right.
