STI Guardian




Seen a 9mm commander size for 995. At my LGS they don't carry STI but got this from someone who won it from STI. That person traded it for a rifle so this gun has not been registered and is still considered brand new. I might be interested in buying but I thought I would ask for opinions. It is two tone black alloy frame SS steel slide and barrel.

Buy it you'll love it. T.A.S. sights on slide labeled Guardian? on an alloy frame is a big plus to me. If ya buy it and don't like it, save this message and PM me, please I'm interested.

Yep TAS sights and roll marked Gaurdian, not sure about the alloy frame it isn't an option according to te the STI site so it is steel with plastic MPH. That maybe why I thought it felt light.

GREAT CARRY GUN, anyway! I have one in .45acp. I also have the original Ranger1, same slide but marked Ranger/ fixed sights. Abbreviated grip length like a detonics combatmaster. Both are a sheer pleasure to own, carry and shoot. Most accurate. And ....Made in TEXAS.

Very tempted to buy it but just spent 1k on an AR so my wife will forbid it. The GS sells Kimber, SA,S&W and Colts and my opinion the Guardian was the best built in the price range.

Where's the shop? That's a few hundred below msrp. If it was a .45 I'd buy it immediately! I love the ranger 2 but a smaller pistol would nice, too.

Ditto to PeterGunn. Buy it. I've got a 9mm Guardian as my primary carry and it's outstanding. Mine is an all steel version with stainless slide and T.A.S. Amazingly accurate for a commander size. Easy to shoot and not much recoil in the 9mm version. You will not be disappointed.
