Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The slide has very little play to the frame. The trigger has just a little bit of creep. This pistol has a Series ’80 style firing pin safety. We did not fire this firearm. As with all used firearms, it may need a thorough cleaning to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This pistol comes in a blue plastic Colt box with serial-matching label, manual, and a total of two 8-round magazines, all in Excellent condition.
Our Assessment: This is a Colt Defender Lightweight, Officer’s-model 1911-style pistol chambered for 9mm. This example is in Excellent condition showing little sign of use. A lightweight, compact pistol chambered for the 9mm cartridge and with a 1911 trigger will make for a great concealed carry pistol. This one, appearing to have spent more time in its box than out, will also be a nice addition to a Colt collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
