Picked up an aluminum framed Guardian 9mm in a trade. I had a full stainless custom one, but had never handled the aluminum version. I must say it is a quality gun. I swapped out the grips for a pair of VZ Gatorbacks I had lying around, and I replaced the bushing and plug with a set that Dave Severns did in Hard Hat when he did my VBOB. The bushing seemed to fit just as well as the stock one and since they are both commander size, I felt it would be OK to use them. Someone smarter than me please correct me if I am wrong. I am planning on taking it to the range tomorrow to see how it handles. Here are a couplke of really bad cell phone pics. Thanks for looking !
