    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 !
