After hearing about the new DW Guardian, I begged Keith at DW to build me one in all stainless . He agreed and 5 months later , I got this :

I can't really say any work was performed . It was a custom build Guardian. Actually, it is more like a 9mm VBOb with Guardian grips.

Dude, I'd make that trade EVERY day and twice on Sunday. Looks sick. That was my first thought....a 9mm VBOB with Guardian grips. Love it.

Thanks guys. I have wanted a 9mm bobtail for a while. I checked out Fusion, and a couple other places, then I heard DW was coming out with the Guardian. I immediatly put my name on the list at a dealer. While waiting for it, I kept hearing about DW doing custom work, like the Bobbed Valor that one of the members hear has, so I contacted them about this build. I was told that it could take most of the year before they got to it, but I was willing to wait for it. I got it in 5 months !

Custom CBOB > custom ProCarry in my humble opinion.

All the work he had done to that kimber I think made them at least equals but that's just my opinion. :)

Oh, the Kimber was very nice. I basically settled on building it when I couldn't find what I really wanted wich was a true commander length , all steal 9mm .There were guns out there that were closer to that than the Kimber like the STI Ranger II, but I got a pretty good deal on theKimber used. Even after all the work I had done to it, I only lost about $100 when I sold it. The DW only cost me $175 more than I sold the Kimber for so I am quite happy with the outcome.
I checked with several builders about the gun I wanted before I built the Kimber, and I could've built the Kimber and bought another one for the prices I was quoted . In fact I even asked DW at the time and was told they could not build a CBOB in 9mm. It wasn't until the announced the Guardian that I contacted them about a build again.

Seems to me like your persistence and patience paid off. I hate you. Really...I do. :tongueout:
