This pistol was purchased new in the box, as a Colt Defender Plus, (model 07860D), in .45acp. It features a lightweight alloy/aluminum frame, and a s/s slide, with a 3" barrel. While unfired, and still in the box, it was taken to a local well known, and competent gunsmith for upgrades prior to carry. These upgrades included:
Commander-style hammer, tool steel sear, solid aluminum Videcki-style trigger with permanently attached overtravel stop.
4 1/2 lb. trigger job.
A decision to retain the Colt origial semi-upswept, wide factory beavertail was made, in order to prevent cutting of the original frame.
Wilson thumb safety, shortened and reshaped.
Novak Low Mount Rear sights, (black), with matchined dovetail fitted front sight.
Match barrel bushing and recrowned muzzle.
EGW checkered slide stop.
Flat 20 LPI checkered or serrated steel mainspring housing.
Beveled mag well.
Reliability Package including a Caspian bar-stock extractor and an oversize firing pin stop to keep the extractor from moving.
Black micarta checkered grips.
Mild dehorn on the slide, keeping the gun's lines intact.
Wolff and/or Wilson springs.
This gun has not been fired since returning from the Smith, who fired enough to ensure reliability and "sight in" at 15 yards with Gold Dot H.P. These are rare, and this one includes a list of all of the work performed, the original box and papers, along with two original Colt magazines. I am willing to ship it to your FFL for $700. If you are seriously interested, please just ask for photos.
