Attn FFL / Dealers / Gun Gurus

I have decided to purchase my next gun which will be a Colt Defender. I have looked all over town here and noone seems to have one in stock, so I am going to have to either order one from my local FFL here or online, so I thought I would post up here first to see if any of you know of any good places to get one at a good deal. If not, then i will just call around the FFLs here and check prices. Thanks

Champion Firearms in College Station has one... I held it in my hand last week.... I bought mine almost 10 years ago and remember it costing about $500 at one of the Houston gun shows. I have not looked at the price since then but 8 bills seems steep... I have only searched for a few minutes and am finding that $805 isn't a bad online price. I would still go to a gun show though..

Try one of the SA gun shows... no doubt about finding one there.

This one was nice as well... called the "New Agent" model (released in 2007) - same size as the defender.. but tailored for concealed carry. Funny though, I couldn't find it on the Colt website - I wonder if they stoped production on these already? Looks like a nice option.

Yeah I looked at the agent too and if I can find one for the same price, I will consider one of those. I like the lack of sights, but until you posted those links, I thought the agent cost more.

Yes $800 is a chunk of change, thats one of the reasons I decided to post up to see if anyone knew of any better deals out there. I think the Saxon Gun show will be in Austin the 21st, so I may just wait and head over there and see what they have.

Check out these two places. I got my 1911 from a mom and pop in Florida and had it shipped to my FFL. Saved 300 bucks!

It is an animated assembly of a 1911.

That is very cool... I took a pic of my 90. I just finished coating it with matte black Duracoat. I like it but don't like how shiny it ended up. I used the matte clearcoat as well. Overall it is cool but I wanted it to be flatter. Looking at their website I now see that they have a "flattening" agent that you can add to the mix. Might have to put one more coat on.

Nice gun, it is a little shinier that I would have thought matte would be

That second pic is the inside the belt/pant holster. Fits nicely in the ol' butt crack.

I ordered some of the "flattening" agent... hopefully it will dull it down a little. I want it almost as flat as the grips. This is my first go-round with DIY gun coating... should have practiced a bit first...

Do a search for B&H GunRack over at Meritt Island Florida. They are pretty cheap. I bought my last 3 guns from them.

Man that's cool as heck RG.

Wish it was an AVI file. Could come in handy if I ever buy a 1911 receiver.
