New Defender 9mm issues?
I was at my local gun shop this afternoon and they had a new Colt Defender 9mm in stock. It had the 100th anniversary stamped in the slide so it must be a newer manufactured gun. He wants $999.00 for it. Is this the going price?
Do these newer 9mm Defender guns have any issues I should know about? I have read a couple of posts about people having problems with a Teflon finish coming off the gun? Do they have any functioning issues?
I have a Series 80 Colt 1991A1 that I love and would love to add a Colt Defender to my collection to be used at a Carry gun.
Thank you very much for your thoughts and comments!
Not sure where you are located but here in Texas it is common to find a brand new colt defender 9mm at gun shows for 850. 999.99 is a little high IMO. I would maybe pay that for a .45 colt defender. Even those can be had for 950 New in box. YMMV. Hope this helps.
My stainless one was less than that.
No functional issues whatsoever with Colt or Metalform mags. My gun came with a too-tall front sight and it was hitting low as a result. A quick trip to Colt sorted that out.
