Introduced in 1997, the Guardian is one of the few guns that fits comfortably in your pocket. The combination of small size, high quality, and great stopping power have made it North American Arms' most popular Guardian. With many subtle improvements made to the design through the years, based in part on customer feedback, the result is an extremely well-made gun that's convenient, reliable, and very effective. The double-action-only Guardian is built on a stainless steel frame with rear slide serrations and stipled synthetic grips. The Guardian weighs less than a pound and a half and has a barrel length of under 2-1/2" inches, making it a true pocket pistol. This handgun features a fixed front sight and two 6-round magazines. It includes the original factory hard case. Its grips and bore are in very good condition and its metal is in good condition.
