Colt Defender 1911 45 ACP

What do you think about this video?

Paul Warner: got one last week 863. tax and all.stainless wood grips.I'd prefer the rubber.

xkguy: My Defender in 45 ACP has handled 230gr FMJ, 230gr plated (I loaded with 10.5 gr AA#7) and 185 gr JHP (also hand loaded)...all with no issues. I might have gotten a good one. Only a few hundred rounds through it though. Compares well to Glock, Kimber and Springfield I have owned. I prefer 40 cal for personal defense and 9mm for plinking. 5.7x28 (Five Seven) is also nice. With 22LR ammo so high in price it is almost better just to practice with the bigger rounds. I also noted that plated ammo in 45 ACP is barely above what I can hand load it for.

Will Cap: would you like to trade?

bigbadmamiejama: Hey Jsnissan, excellent vid. Thinking about a compact 1911. Narrowed it down to 1) Colt Defender 2) Springfield RO compact/champion 3) Kimber Ultra Carry II. Do you feel like your pinky has a good purchase at the base of the grip? i have a medium size hand. Looking at the Springfield RO Champion cuz of 4" bbl and full size grip, but would prefer the Colt. Your thoughts?? Thx.

JoeBWahn: Hello, I have owned my Defender since May of this year and I absolutely love it! Just wanted you to know this video helped me decide to purchase the Colt and I am glad I did. GREAT video, only 255 rounds through it, so no HP ammo yet.

Will Cap: Do you still have it?

Will Cap: Do you still have it?

Chief60: Why does everyone start talking about something else(your stupid knife diatribe)before they talk about the reason for the video in the first place?
Lame ass way to make a video

akaitsmedre: Shot my new defender today for the first time. I shot 150 rounds FMJ with zero malfunctions of any kind. It was also fairly accurate.

rrosadomilan: Did you use a dremel to polish the feed ramp or just a product like Flitz?? Coo video!!!

moaski: With the rubber grips removed, is there any checkering on the front strap of the aluminum frame?  I'm looking to buy a used Defender, but don't care for the rubber grips as I prefer the feel of traditional wood.

1021tap78: You need to post a more detailed shooting vid

Carlos A. Flores H.: Good video pero espiquin españis

Extranegative: Ive had one for 3 years NEVER has jammed with anything! I mean ANYTHING.

Arthur Barthélémy: Magnifique franchement elle et carrément parfaite pour moi surtout que elle et plus petit que les berretta et les colt ou autre et sa sait vraiment important surtout quand on et dans une forêt ou dans le urbin âpre il doit être plus puissants et surtout en vitesse de deguenage et de prise en main en plus sait colt donc robustesse soliditait turabilitait moi je lui mais 19/20

marko kamberi: thAts bad whats the range on this 4 feet?

Russel Mack: Question,, why does the action on my new Defender lock open when cycling slide with an empty clip inserted ? .. and won't permit the slide lock release to be dropped down until the magazine is removed? Haven't experienced this condition with any of my other semi autos. Thanks for the help.

jsnissan: @barakuna not yet I'm still looking for one

barakuna: So no hinderer?

jbjr13: I would recommend a polish job on the swirls seen @ 8:50, also on the ramp inside the frame. Ask a gunsmith if not comfortable doing it yourself.. This wiill greatly improve feed with all ammo, Love the weapon, carries nice, shoots well and feels good in hand. Worth the purchase.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
