Nice pistol Blaze!

I know you'll enjoy it, I have the Defender Plus model (8 shot mag) they only made it less then 2 years. I just put 10 mags through it today. Very accurate, nice to shoot...only failure I've had was a broken extractor last year. And I've put a lot of rounds through it.

Haugrdr thanks. Nice looking gun ....
I always wanted a officer size and I really am impressed with all the reviews and positive outlook with the defender.

I did learn that the new models now can use the full size mags just fine.. I will be giving report soon about it... I have several 10 rounders from Wilson combat I looking forward trying

Thanks Jim. I did run one mag thur it already just to get the feel and I was very impressed of how it felt. I look forward to running many types of ammo and mag sizes thur it to see how it performs. According from colt all the mags should operate flawless in the newer models and they claim now that all brands and speciality ammo will have no problem in this model ...
