    Have a defender see upcoming pics in the Colt Forum. Will not want to miss this one.

    Called Colt and they told me to stop by if I preferred. I live 30 mins away. New spring Assembly in hand the next day. The part actually failed just a day before!

    Great CS at Colt! I spoke to Karin and she got me back running quick!

    recall

    I got my New Agent back from Colt on 7/16/09; checked the new recoil spring ass'y., it was noticeably weaker than the original outer spring, I was able to compress it to almost the solid state between my thumb and forefinger. Took the gun to the range and fired 100 rounds thru it; had seven FTF's, WWB 230 gr. fmj, rounds wedged themselves up under the slide and the breech face.
    Called Colt service dept. and related the above to them; they're sending me a new outer recoil spring. I asked the guy to check the tension before he sends it, but he said he had one in his hand as we talked and he couldn't compress it between his fingers as I did, so that's a good sign.
    I'll update when I get the spring.

    Colt Service sent me a new outer recoil spring. Installed it and fired 100 rounds at the range ....... no problems.
    Thanks Colt.
