    Colt Defender or Colt New Agent??

    my next pistol is going to be one of these bit i cannot choose . I can say the reason i want the new agent is because i dont have a 9mm and would like one but i like the SS finish on the Defender but that is only .45, please help me in this decision and why you would choose it....Thanks in advance.

    If its a play gun , I say go with what you want, but if its a carry gun for SD,stay with one that has sights, I know the other has the copy of the old Guttersnipe channel, and I had one of the modfied S&W's but the sights will work out better in the long run, Just my 2 cwnts

    I agree with Dave James - get one with sights. If you really like the 9mm in a 1911 format, the EMP is a fine package.

    Actually, the Colt New Agent does not have a copy of Paris Theodore's "Guttersnipe."







    It just has a channel that run the length of the slide.

    You CAN get the Defender in Stainless in 9mm. I have one that I bought for my wife. When I take both the .45 & the 9mm to the range, sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference just looking at them until you look at the end of the barrel.

    ^^^^^^^^^If this is true, ^^^^^^^^^^^^^



    I would look at another manufacturer, and stick with .45, as I believe, even though you didn't state the reason, by your choice of compact pistols, this is to be a SD firearm.
    Too many better choices for 9mm for SD to bother considering this one.

    Not only insane, it's complete bull.

    ^^^^^^^^THEN if this is true^^^^^^^^^^^^^^




    I would opt for the larger caliber, with the fewer rounds you will have available for SD in 9mm.

    That's why I ask because that guy online sounded like he knew what he was talking about, I will just stick with my .40 px4 sub compact.

    Personally, I like sights on a weapon for social purposes. The New Agent is probably a great pistol for those that like the platform sans sights, but I would choose the Defender, as sights add versatility to a gun.

    As far as feeding HPs, I don't know about that, but it would not deter nor affect my decision at all.
    It's a Colt, and a solid 230 weight slug will suffice quite well.
