    Thumbs up Colt Defender purchase

    Well guys
    Yup, the "buy-it-now" bug bit me again. I picked up this Colt 90 Series 45ACP 3 inch BBL Defender today. Came with the box, 2 stainless 7 shot mags and paperwork. I paid $550.00 for it. I've seen them for a whole lot more in other places, so I figured it was a pretty good deal.
    Gotta clean it up a little, but here's what it looked like before the strip down/cleanup process. I've got the extended slide stop and extended safety somewhere in my box of goodie parts. I'll put those on as well. Oh I added one more pic, just to let you see the "size factor" in the hand

    Curse you and your envy inducing deal finding ways!

    That IS a good deal. I saw the same thing for $850 locally. Sold within a week.

    I remember that discussion we had. I know most of them are very fussy about what kins of diet we feed them. The deal was just a very good find, and I'm going to dress it up a bit, and got riight through it. I do have my Lightweight Combat Commander I purchased a few months ago, and I'd stake my life on it. (it came with TONS of custom goodies doen be the previous owner) But what the heck, where can ya find a Colt at a reasonable price? especially the Defender series or similar

    You done good.

    Just a matter of being in the right spot at the right time.

    I carry a XSE stainless Combat Commander myself. Didnt do anything to it though...it came with all the goodies. Only government model I own that I havent "improved"...

    I had the Defender on hold for a few days, where I make most of my deals. I'll probably try it out either Tomorrow night, or Tuesday night at the range. Will give a report on it I'll try several brands of ammo, with several bullet weights as well.
