Very nice handgun! I have not owned a Colt in many years and I am very please with this model. It is also my first short-barreled 1911. The fit and quality of the firearm are top notch. It feels great in my hand. I did not care for the wrap-around rubber grips so I replaced them with wood grips. Some people might like the rubber - but give me wood any day. The Defender functions flawlessly and is great for concealed carry. I would have preferred tritium sights - but the Novaks are the next best thing. I highly recommend this Colt Defender. It is a firearm worthy of the Colt name. (Not so with the new Lightweight Commander).

This bad boy went to work as soon as I squeezed the first round! I put about 100 rounds and worked like it's supposed to. I love how it feels on the hand and its great accuracy. My new favorite toy and worth every penny....thanks Bud's

I bought this handgun for EDC and am glad I did.After taking t to the range and putting 200 rounds down range with out a jam with both FMJ and HP's I see no problem carrying this daily.This weapon was very tight and hard to take down to clean but I think it will loosen up after a few more range times.

This is my first review of a gun from Bud's even though I am happy with all of my purchases and choices. The Colt Defender is now my carry pistol. Thanks to all of you who have posted comments on the positives and negatives (although for me there are no negatives). I just went to the range and fired all my compacts and sub compacts. For accuracy the Defender for me beat the Glock 43, Ruger LC9 and to my surprise the CZ SP01! The .45 caliber Recoil was very manageable. I won't put up with too much so for me to recommend this over a 9mm is something special for a 3" barrel in .45 cal. Yes, it's a little heavier than the 43 or the LC9 but not by much and not much bulkier either. I had no failure to feed or fire with some cheapo ammo. I'm really happy with this firearm if you can't tell by now. I shopped around and Bud's had the best price by far. One dealer, when I told him what Bud's price was told me to snap it up cause at that price it was too good to pass up. To sum up.... 2 words....Buy it !!!

This is one sleek 45ACP shooting firearm. Just got it, cleaned it then took it to the range and ran a box of Winchester 230g FMJs through it. Flawless 50 out of 50 rounds with no issues and a surprisingly manageable recoil. The pic doesn't do any justice to the feel and niceness of this gun. Makes a great looking little brother next to my SS Colt Commander, also purchased from BGS. If you're looking for good smaller size firearm to carry with plenty fire power but don't mind the extra couple of ounces of weight, you can't go wrong with this one. After all, it's a Colt. What makes it a real sweet deal is it's a Colt from Buds. As always, great quality at a great price. Thanks BGS! Another homerun.
