    Colt will fix it up for you. Only 2 negative posts about Defenders out of 21 is a pretty good indicator. If you do the math it still gets an "A".

    Right now, price is the only thing holding me back. Hopefully soon.
    What range of prices are you finding? If you can get one (retail) for $800 or less (out the door), it's probably a good deal. I'll check with a friend and find out what wholesale is right now.

    "Chiming In. Mine Does Not Extract".

    That's what scares me about spending the cash on one. I had a Gov. Pocketlight that was a little finicky.

    I guess I'm sticking with what works for now (my Glocks), and when I have the money burning a hole in my pocket will consider looking at a Defender more seriously.

    Part of life is taking risks. We've all bought lemons. Live and learn. The alternative, to not own a gun at all, is unacceptable as far as I am concerned. Colt has very good customer service.

    I just got off the phone with Colt. I will send the Defender back to the shop tomorrow. I will post the results.

    I hope this is better than your "send it back to Kimber" experience.

    I have a Defender that would not extract too. I replaced the original (MIM junk) extractor with a Wilson Combat bulletproof extractor. I chose blue over SS because I feel the tool steel is better than SS. The new extractor has completely solved the extraction issue. The new extractor is a much tighter fit than the original and also required a bit of fitting to the FPS to get it back together. Apparently the MIM extractors were used for a short time by Colt. Not a good choice.Chuck.

    I had one of them when they first came out. At first, it was totally reliable and extremely accurate for a small .45. After a short period of time it became unpredictable. At one range session it would run perfect, then the next week using the same ammo and magazines there would be FTF and FTE issues with every magazine. The gun was always kept clean and properly lubed. The extractor and all other functions were checked and rechecked. It was the only .45 Auto I have ever given up on. It was not a satisfactory experience.

    I don't remember where I got my wood grips but any grips for a Colt Officer's model will also fit.
