Now, on to issues at hand....
STI has two lines of weapons. Their entry level and their competition geared level.
On the entry level guns, they do use MIM parts, on their competition guns I do not believe that to be the case.
There is nothing wrong with MIM parts, but for me, personally, I will not carry a weapon for personal defense that has them. That is personal opinion.
I believe the Guardian is the skeletal trigger, cast frame model. If that is the case, I believe you probably have a few MIM parts in there, but I do not know for sure.
For average carry and for average range time, I am betting the weapon will perform flawlessly and be a great exition to your arsenal.
I would recommend having it looked over if you want to feed it a steady and healthy diet of +P ammo - but for basic range work and carry, it should perform as advertised.
Looking forward to a Range Report.
