    My latest CCW gun - Colt Defender with new Sarge's grips:

    I was reluctant to purchase a small 45 because of hearing they are often unreliable feeders and have a sharp, uncontrollable recoil because of their light weight. Well, I took the plunge and bought this new Defender and have not had a single problem. It is very well balanced and recoil is similar to my Sig C3 which is fine for me. I have shot FMJ, Federal HST's, hydroshoks, and Hornady XTP's with 100% feed and reliability so far out to around 600 rounds now. I have become very fond of it and now use it as an everyday carry weapon. The only thing I didn't care for was how wide the stock Hogue grips were. I have since replaced them with Sarge's Red Mallee Burl grips. Hope you like the pics - I sure think it looks great.

    Congrats on the powerful but small SD package.

    That's a great looking gun. Love the grips and also the black trigger. I've been looking into a 3" 1911 myslef.

    Nice looking package!

    Sarge keeps threatening to make grips for the P7. If he does you'll see mine here.

    +1. Sarge's grips really accent the pistols lines.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
