The Guardian, as the name implies is a PDW designed for those in charge of protecting high profile diplomats, family or personal property. When it comes to defensive weapons, we firmly abide by the K.I.S.S. rule. We want simple, effective, and proven products that deliver. As is familiar with all of our Night Ops models the standard equipment we use is our own matched upper and lower receivers sets machined from billet 7075 T6 aluminum, and pinned together with Battle Arms enhanced take down pins. Night Ops upper receivers are completely coated in NiBx to facilitate smooth operation and enhance reliability with the exterior top coated in cerakote. Lower receivers sport enlarged trigger guards with all edges chamfered to remove "Hot Spots" and flared mag wells for faster reloads. Other parts used as standard equipment are the Axis ambi charging handles, and Night Ops enhanced bolt carrier groups with all critical areas inside and out hand polished to a mirror finish. Night Ops barrels are true match grade 416R stainless steel with 5R rifling, hand lapped bores and polished feed ramps. All of our Guardian barrels are 8.5" long and fitted to one of our proprietary integral suppressors, bringing the overall barrel length to 15". All neatly tucked inside our very own aluminum handguard equipped with 5 quick detach sling attachments points, full length top rail and three forward rails positioned at 3, 6, & 9 o'clock positions. We utilize the ARC, PDW stock made by MVB Industries. This stock is unique in that it is the only PDW stock that allows shot gunning and the use of Mil Spec BCG's. All familiar qualities to the AR operator. We then give you, the customer a list of options to tailor the build to suit your individual needs or taste. Stand Strong!
