:shock: What are you waiting for?? I looked at one of these in a 9mm, and they aint cheap. If anything, you could pick it up, and if ya don't like it, could sell it and make 3 bills. :razz:

My concern is you haven't bought it yet. Sounds like your gun guy is giving you a good deal on.

For $900, I'd pass.
For $600, I might take a shot at it.
But I'm not really partial to the 40cal round, even more so in a short barrel.

If that was a 9mm Defender for $600, I would buy it myself....;)

Unlike the EMP, which changed I think 14 or 15 parts, the Defender probably uses traditional 1911 parts.
The 40cal has little to do with the parts, minus the mags and barrel.
Much like my Kimber CDP Ultra did.
It was a 45ACP pistol modded down to 9mm.


Let us know what you decided brian.

If it is in good condition, $600 is a great price.

Nice. How is the LDA trigger on it? Pretty light for a double action?
