Guardian in .45 ACP mostly.

Changed the thumb safety to a Wilson and mainspring housing to an Ed Brown snakeskin.

Photo below still has the original blocky thumb safeties.

How much fitting did you have to do on the main spring housing ?
Zero. What you see is how they slid in.

There is a caveat however.

DW changed their bobtail profile mid 2018 to where the Ed Brown mainspring housings don't work any longer. If contemplating a DW Guardian, make sure it is dated 2017 or earlier for compatibility with EB MSH's.

I've also changed out the grips to VZ slims.

DW Guardian in 38 Super. I usually carry in a Warbird leather IWB holster or a Galco combat master for OWB.

I love DW's. I think they are absolutely the best value for your money not only in 1911's but in most all guns. The quality & shoot-ability you get for the money is incredible.

Excellent choices! I have a Guardian in 38 super and just love it. Also a ECP, TCP, Valor, and stupidly sold both of my Valkyrie's.

Someone at the classifieds has my ex Valkyrie 9mm with full length grips back up for sale and to me, Valkyrie's were one of DW's best!
