I received my Crystal Reveal Guardians. One is a Champion Tier and the other is an Initiate. Both were coincidentally the last of its respective kind at Etsy during the time of purchase by me. Some quick observations include

- Both have two drilled holes each, and spaced such that it is not possible to see the holes when the emitter is turned (in any direction) or if removed. The holes hide well out of sight. This pleasantly contradicts the picture I posted in my post #67161 where the holes are visible. Maybe that was an early prototype for the photos?

- There were little factory metal dust / finish along the threads. Nothing that I could not easily brush away with a brush (I used a clean shoe shine brush). Moreover, repeated turns of the emitter do not create new dust along the threads.

- My Champion hilt's recharge port sits just far enough such that I can plug in a recharge plug easily without rubbing against the covertec (i.e. the recharge plug-kill-key is wide enough to literally just about avoid making contact with the covertec).

- Switch sits perfectly level with the flat grooves.

Wait! :huh: So a loaded CR Guardian and an empty CR Guardian? What are the plans with surface mods for the empty besides board install?

Thanks, video later when the installation is done with the Initiate.

There is something about the Champion Guardian's speaker that is exceptionally loud (even on the soft setting). And we have quite a few Champions around to compare, this one is louder than average.

You monkey!!! I was just about to grab one! You suck, dude. Hahaha. I'm just kidding around, but, seriously, I was just about to get one when I saw the listing had been removed. I guess I gotta go with the regular Guardian. But, congrats, Ex66 (and, by extension OvrcAHst). You gonna do a video review of the Crystal Guardian so I can see its fine points on camera?
