I'd been waiting for the defender in 9mm specifically to come in stock for awhile. When I saw it was, I placed it on layaway and had it paid within a month. Once the order hit Buds shipping department, it shipped the next day and was at my FFL three days later. The pictured Colt Defender 9mm shows a different slide cut on the forward end, similar to the New Agent. What I received looks exactly like the 45acp Defender pictured on this site, this 9mm doesn't have that forward slide cut. Not a huge deal but just for those interested to know. I like this one better so I gladly accepted the transfer. The price dropped sharply after I placed my order so after making a claim with BuySafe, they've got a check in the mail to me for the difference. After a good cleaning, this little Colt is a beauty. The included Hogue grips are ugly as all get out but they feel great in the hand. I have slightly larger than normal hands and could get all fingers on the grip. Slide to frame fit is pretty tight, tighter than my Wiley Clapp Commander which costs significantly more. I'm sure it'll loosen up a bit as it gets more rounds down the pipe. After 150 rounds of assorted ball and jhp ammo, there were no issues to speak of. Sight picture is very easy to see and recoil is...well it's only a 9mm, easy to handle. There is some creep in the trigger however it still has a clean break. All in all, Buds was great and I'm happy to have added this little 1911 to my collection.

Fantastic gun. Great for use as CCW. After firing over 200 rounds thru it it runs like a top. There were some FTE issues in the first 50 rounds but the more work it gets the better it works. Only had a couple FTEs after the first 100 rounds. I would recommend this weapon.

Had this one on my wish list since June. Finally became available in October. I didn't have the money to buy it outright, so I took advantage of Bud's excellent layaway program. Three months later I'm out at the range with my new Colt and man was it worth the wait. I thoroughly cleaned it before heading out to the range and took my Glock 19 along as well. I was a little shaky on the first couple of magazines, but after that was consistently in the nine and ten ring from 7-10yds. It performed as well as my Glock, which has a one inch longer barrel and function was just as flawless.
I came away very impressed after my first range session. I've read about many people not liking the grips, but they fit my hands perfectly. I prefer function over looks, but they don't look bad either. Overall, the Colt Defender in 9mm should make any excellent CCW gun with a little more range time. The only knock is that when I opened the case upon arrival, I noticed one of the magazines included was a .38 super. However, a quick call to Colt and a 9mm mag was on it's way.
I waited a long time for this one and it was well worth the wait. It's my first Colt, and I highly doubt it will be my last. I have a Colt Gold Cup now on my wish list, so it's time to start saving up!
