anyone have experience with this?

A good buddy of mine has been selling off most of his gun collection, while he was showing me many of the pistols he has, we came across a Colt Defender 45 all stainless that he bought some time ago and forgot he ever had it. It has never been fired and still in box w. papers and wrapped in plastic. He wants to give me a good deal on it. Any of you guys know anything about the pistol?

The Colt Defender is a nice 3" gun like a Kimber Ultra. I was looking at one last year in a LGS and was tempted at $850.00, I hesitated and when I went back a week later it was sold.

Don't own one, always wanted one at least for the last few years. Just like everything else in the world heard good and bad, some people love them and some people hate them.

If he offers a good price I would buy it. Prices are a little scattered at least on GunBroker. They did make some that were Talo Editions.

The price he gave me was well below the 850. looks like a good shooter though.. he put it on the side for me. he said ther is no urgency

If I had a chance at it "for well below $850.00" I'd jump on it but that's me.

Heck yeah what Chuck said, I'd jump on it! When you come across a good deal like that you can't hesitate.

Colt's MSRP is $973.00 but there are some on GunBroker for more and some for around 850 and there are also several auctions well below 850.

My take is if you know the guy and his price is "well" below 850 I would not hesitate giving him the money. I personally think that is a real good deal. I bet it will shoot great. If you don't like it I will buy it from you! lol

I'm pretty confident I won't have to buy it but it is OK if I do.
