What's it have for sights? Groove on the top?
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 1:38:26 PM EST
Worth it? Depends on what the offer was.

How much $?

I have heard many good things, but never saw one at a price that I felt was right.

As a new Lightweight Commander owner, I say yes.

Its sho' is purdy, I know that much.

ETA: though Im not going to lie, for something that size I would rather have a 9mm, and for a 9mm 1911 that size I would rather have an EMP, but if I was set on .45 I would get that in a heartbeat if it suited my needs.

Hasn't had any problems so far.

Fantastic gun. I don't love the size in .45 either. I'd shoot one first before you Fo.

They made you sing a non-disclosure agreement?

The bottom one is a New Agent. It came from the factory with XS sights instead of the trench sights. I had a Wilson beavertail added. I carry it often, used it through a couple draw/shoot classes. Love it.

I don't think it's a New Agent, it's probably a Defender.
I don't see how they could install sights on the New Agent.

Yea, it's top secret too.
The owner asked me not to say what it is.

Link Posted: 12/14/2013 2:41:22 PM EST
So, how are we supposed to know if it's worth it or not?
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 2:42:40 PM EST
FO!
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 2:46:58 PM EST
I have a Defender and really like it.

Why is your offer some big secret?
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 2:57:55 PM EST
Love my New Agent but if could do over would probably get Defender with sights.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 3:36:33 PM EST
Price????

I kind of like them, depending on the cost. My grail is a Detonics Combat Master at a reasonable price.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 3:42:25 PM EST
Where is the rest of it
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 4:00:32 PM EST
I have a New Agent. It's a good pistol and I practice with it about once a month.

Like the poster above, if I had it to do over again, I would

Make sure this New Agent has the recall work done if it needs it. The recall will fix the recoil spring guide pad. It needs fixing, if your pistol is in the serial number range.

A defective guide pad WILL break under repeated firing and the pieces will jam the pistol up, making it difficult to disassemble and diagnose. Ask me how I know.

I regret selling mine.

Why? Not like I'm going in there and asking for a price match.

Never had a breakage, but did get the recall taken care of, and I concur with Ken's assessment.

It depends on what I'm wearing or doing.

I know there is a significant difference between the two, when using the same belt and holster, I won't even notice the alloy-framed OACP 10 hours later, where the steel frame Gov't model will always make its presence known.

You got a TALO New Agent XS.
That's how you have sights on your New Agent.
Nice.

Yessir. I changed out the grips.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 5:44:18 PM EST
I like my New Agent for what it is, a compact, large caliber handgun. It's not that much fun to shoot but it fills a role that its big brothers cannot.
