    A month ago at least a dozen online retailers had them. Lowest price was a touch over $1300 plus shipping to my FFL. Now that I'm ready to buy, the only one showing in stock is Cabelas. $1600 and will only ship to another Cabelas. That's a 200 mile round trip for me.

    I'm wondering if there was a lot of "backlash" to their "design changes" this year . . . . . .

    They do runs of each model. Sometimes they get scarce before another run gets done.

    The $999 opening bid is a used Guardian. Fair price for a decent used model, but it's an auction, so . . . . . .

    I realize it's used. The seller does have an A+ rating. Maybe I can contact them for some more pics of it. Wasn't sure what a decent price for a used one is.

    @ZoidMeister helped me find mine at a cost of $1100 brand new but it's a 38 super not a 45.

    I’d say $1,000 is a good buy and $1,100 would be the highest I’d go on a used Guardian.

    That pistol don't look to be in too bad of shape for the age.. Seems to have been cared for. I have a .45 but, out of my cold dead fingers lol has to be my favorite gun in.45 and my pm9 in 9mm... And I have a Brown and a Baer. But, the Guardian to me top notch..

    Good to hear that you highly value your Guardian. When I look through the DW lineup, the Guardian is the one that jumps out at me above the others for some reason. It just feels right choosing the .45 model. I have a couple of 9mm semi-autos, but most of the ones I own are .45's.
