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.

Nice looking package! :hand10:

Sarge keeps threatening to make grips for the P7. If he does you'll see mine here. :image035:

Sarge's grips really sets that gun off.
