I've always really liked the Guardian and don't understand why it's not had more recognition among the Wessonites.

Probably has a lot to do with that sissy girlie caliber it's chambered in. Damn it man, don't you know JMB created the holy pistol for God's caliber!?!?!




ps....I'd give my left nut for a Guardian....if Mrs Hokie would let me have access to it.

That Springer is nice, but it needs a flush fit mag. An extended mag kind of defeats the purpose of the Bobtail, in my opinion. Easy 'nuff fix, though...

True...

Although I keep thinking about selling the CBOB while it's NIB and putting a couple hundy into it and getting a VBOB now. Hmmmmmmmm.

Quack
07-28-2010, 09:42
personally if i had a Cbob, i would skip the VBob and go to the KC.

Hokie1911

Yeah, but that's a like $600-700 jump, where the CBOB>VBOB is only a couple hundred.

Honestly, will probably keep the CBOB for a year or so until I get the KC or NoBOB. :supergrin:

Quack
07-28-2010, 09:48
but even if you go with the Vbob, you will still lust for the KC.

Just sayin' :whistling:

Yep,.....I went shopping for a CBOB.
Changed into looking into a Valor.
Sidetracked and bought a Ed Brown KC,.......sheer bliss! :supergrin:

Hokie1911

Just sayin' :whistling:

Even if I got the VBOB now....would still offload it in a year or so for the KC or NoBOB. That's inevitable. I will have one or the other for my 40th in 22 months. Ms Hokie has been warned, and she is none too pleased about that.

I had a chance to fondle a Springer Pro when I was visiting the In-laws back in IN last week.. it was at a lgs named Blythes.. $2,099 otd I could have cried.. that thing is put together amazingly well (as it should b for that price).. after finally handling one the only thing that I did not like about it was the 30 lpi checkering on the frontstrap

Quack
07-28-2010, 09:55
you guys don't know how to do it properly. i take a cold bath in ice water then tell the wife i bought another 1911. that way when she tries to take my nuts, she thinks that she already has them, but misplaced them somewhere along with her keys :animlol:

So that's what you do when you drive to KY all the time. I was wondering what your secret was...

well what ever the lpi is I do not like the way it feels.. the cowboy behind the counter said it was 30 (mind you this is also the fella who said that STI builds a better 1911 than Wilson).. so if I get a chance to order one it will be non-checkered..I find that skateboard tape provides a much more positive grip
(it may not look as pretty but it works):upeyes:

What's worse....carrying a nice 1911 in Kydex....or skateboard tape on your front strap? Me personally, I'd never do either.

then it wouldn't be a Professional, it would be a Custom Carry ;)

Cerebrus
07-28-2010, 11:42

so that is the only difference between a $1,400 and a $2,000+ gun? :whistling:

Quack
07-28-2010, 11:51
The Professional comes in 2 flavors, rail or non-rail, any variance from that and it will not be a Professional.
i believe the Springfield Custom Shop Custom Carry start around $1800 before adding options in. add in checkering, magwell, Black-T and tuned mags to get the same gun as a Professional.

Cerebrus
07-28-2010, 12:03
Man if that is the only difference.. sounds like the Custom Carry is the way to go..checkering, magwell, and Black-T are superfluous and non essential for what they charge for it.. I am more concerned about how it works than anything else.. not that I will be ordering one anytime soon.. but thanks for the insight anyhow Quack.. O and sorry 'bout 'jackin yer thread.. :supergrin:

You'd have likely fainted back in the late 80s, when the brand-new Para 13 round conversion frames came out, and small-handed IPSC shooters were using skate-board tape as GRIPS! :wow:

Removed the bushings and just covered the frame sides and front straps with tape. :supergrin:

Sorry to side track the side track..

But I stopped by Bud's today on my way through and looked at the pistol. So it is ironic that I came home to see this thread.

It has been shot, as the breach face is filthy. But it's just gunk. Other than that, it looks LNIB. Definitely new or a safe queen. It was very nice and I had to talk myself out of buying it.

That and the guy working the counter was a moron................. Nice guy, but.......wow.
