    New Colt Defender

    My wife and I drove down to Prescott (an hour or so south of Flagstaff) today. There are more stores down there, and she was looking for shoes. So I said: "honey, while you're looking at shoes, I'll be at the local gun store".

    Long story short, I picked up a new in the box Colt Defender - series 90 - also bought two Wilson Combat 7 round magazines with a .350" base pad for this model gun. Hoping it makes a nice concealed carry piece.

    Here's a picture. Range report to follow.

    Colt Defenders are sweet! Don't care for the stock grips but they can magicly change quickly. I think you will love the gun for carry. I carry an Ultra CDP in a Max-Con V and I forget it is even there.

    Nice pick up, I hope your wife found some shoes at least!

    Looks good Nick - guns are soooo much more fun than shoes too

    Just wondering tho - how many pairs of shoes equate to the gun and mag's ??

    Thanks folks - Will post a report as soon as I can - Read a pretty decent review of the Colt Defender last night at http://www.sightm1911.com/ so I'm happy to have found one.

    She bought 2 pairs. Looks to me like I came out ahead.

    Nice gun! If you ever change the grips I'd love to see a pic. I'd really like to get a small 1911 for carry and whenever I ask for advise, the Colt Defender comes up. It looks like the color of the frame is different than the stainless slide. Is it? An do you like the contrast? Would love to see some close up pics! Enjoy shooting and be sure to tell us how the recoil feels compared to a 5" 1911.

    And if you don't mind me asking, how were you able to pick it up like that? In Missouri we have to get get a permit to acquire a handgun. So if I find a gun, I can put money down on it and then I have to get my permit (takes 3-7 days) and drive back to get the weapon. Costs 10 bucks and it's always approved, but it keeps you from picking up guns on the fly. The one time I went to a gun show, I got a permit to acquire before I went in case I found something. It's a pain!


    From what I've read you won't have any problems with that weapon!

    God Bless

    In Arizona, there's no permit or waiting period needed for handguns. If you have a CCW, you just fill out the paperwork in the store, and you're good to go. Without a CCW, all the FFL dealer does is make a phone call for an instant background check.

    If you're interested, here's some further detail information on the Defender from the Colt site http://www.coltsmfg.com/cmci/Defender.asp

    By the way, I do like the contrast between the frame and the slide. I'll try to post some pics soon.

    Gideon, The frame is aluminum alloy and this is why you see the contrast in the frame and SS slide.

    Also do you have your MO, CHL permit? PTA's are a major pain but with my CHL I get mine on the spot now. No waiting from my sheriff! Missouri is just backwards because even with a PTA you must pass the federal back ground check too and my FFL does it online and within a minute or two approval comes through. PTA's are a buch of BS!
