    I acquired a NIB Colt Defender. The box says it is a 07000DZ, supposedly a Custom Shop gun made in 1998. Is it? It is made well. I never cared for the Colts with those odd C-More rear sights. It is a .45. Big difference in that it has two round barrel/slide ports instead of the four...

    First 2 mags from my new Colt Elite Combat Defender 3". Love at first shot!

    The low prices on these are really tempting me just because. After all, who doesn't need a new Springfield for RIA/ATI money, right? They look like they'd be a great beater/field gun right out of the box, except for the arched MSH. Have any of you guys bought one yet? Opinions? Reviews?

    I posted a couple of weeks ago about 9mm Lightweight Defender (Model 07002DSE) a local shop had in the used case and the consensus was it was too high. It looked like new except for the barrel hood wear and we confirmed it had the case and 2 mags with it. It actually looks like someone bought...

    Hey fellow addicts. Looks like I’m moving my Sig P226R finally so I’m wondering what users thoughts are on the Colt Defender. I currently own a Dan Wesson Specialist and a lightly customized ORM 1991A1. I carry OWB exclusively and my normal t shirt gun is a Glock 27 as the 1991 is a little long...

    Found this one locally. Not sure what grips I want to put on it yet, as this will be in my carry rotation once it proves itself. Factory grips not sure what these are as they came on another gun. these are the thinnest of all the grips again not sure what wood these are, but I think they...

    This is the newer model Colt Defender # 07802XE Just broken in with less than 500 rounds downrange, never a failure of any kind. Minimal recoil, extremely accurate for 3" barrel gun. It's never been holstered (not even once), not a mark anywhere, only lived at the range 4x's in the last year...

    Hi all! I've got a Colt Defender (.45) I bought new in January. I've run about 1000 rounds (more or less) through it. Now I'm getting a lot of Failure to Feed issues (about 10%). Is it time to replace the recoil springs? To any Colt Defender owners, how often do you replace the recoil springs...

    As I lurk in the background here learning what I can about 1911's, and picking up good pointers from you all here I needed to ask a question. Many have made a point of looking at the LGS for used pistols. On my outing this weekend, I decided to see what I could find in the used department. I...

    I bought this new six months ago. This colt is LNIB in every way, except I've fired less than 50 rounds through it. It has never been holstered and spent it's short life in a climate controlled safe. $850 shipped from my FFL to yours. It shoots great, but I'm gathering funds for a purchase from...

    Hi guys. I wonder how many of you carry the chopped 1911s in .45 or 9mm? I've never shot one , but like the shorter grips on my carry guns. The Defender or the Ultra are price even in my area, and I'm curious as to how they would recoil with 230 grain ball ammo> Hopefully, not beat me up...
