    Just a suggestion, but have you looked at a compact kimber. They have to same frame height of a Ultra size but is has a 4" barrel. I have two kimbers, a CDP pro and a Eclipse pro, and they have been 100% reliable out of the box. I have a Colt 80 series officer's model (about the same size as the defender) and it has jammed MANY times. I know some people get along just fine with their 1911's with a barrel less than 4", but I don't. As I see it concealing a bit longer barrel is not an issue. So with the a compact I think you're getting the best of both worlds. If I can ever sell my Officer's model I think a kimber compact stainless might be replacing it.
