Good Plunker, All Steel
May 4, 2014
This is a Great Little Pistol, Real Feel And Look for a BB Pistol, There is no clip, so you have to load directly into the gun into a force feed chamber, and is very easy, shoots decent for a BB pistol, well made, ideal for a person wanting to learn to shoot, co2 lasts quite a long time,
Pros:
fun to shoot, all steel, good feel
Cons:
could use more power, a clip would be nice

Good gun until it started leaking
September 14, 2013
Shot well and I liked the feel of the gun. Used it for about 1 year and then it started leaking air. I investigated and found I could order a new seal, don't bother, replaced the seal and it still leaked.
Pros:
Great feel and fairly accurate.
Cons:
Unrepairable.

Very nice Colt style pistol
August 7, 2013
Handles like my real 1911s. Almost all metal construction makes it similar in weight for practice at target shooting zombies (yes I'm using the grandkids zombie targets). Lot cheaper shooting BBs than 45s. Very accurate, but then I'm use to the Colt 45s which have pretty much the same sight pattern. I've installed an extra laser sight from my full size parts box which really makes it dangerous on the zombies!
Pros:
On quick look could pass for a real Colt 1911 Very good accuracy
Cons:
NONE

I like this BB gun
June 7, 2013
This one feels like a real gun in your hand or holster. Mine has a smooth trigger feel, not too hard, and has good accuracy. I can hit most everything I aim at in my backyard - 20 to 25 yards. Lots of fun, not terribly loud, but you can tell what it is from the sound. Pretty good sights, no adjustments.
Pros:
Good metal feel, accurate within its useful range. Smooth double action, easy to keep on target.
Cons:
Grip, which slides back to open and reveal the CO2 cart. on one side and built in BB clip on the other, is a bit loose feeling when it is closed and locked, but not a major problem. Doesn't feel like it will accidentally open.

UMAREX CO2 COLT DEFENDER
March 26, 2013
Great Co2 pistol for the money. It uses very little Co2. You get about 90 shots per Co2 cartridge. Very hard hitting pistol.
Pros:
I like the compact size of the gun. Hard hitting, glass bottles don't stand a chance with this pistol.
Cons:
LONG AND HARD TRIGGER PULL. BUT REMEMBER THE TRIGGER MOVES THE BARREL FORWARD AND SNAPS BACK TO RELEASE THE CO2.

Colt Defender BB Air Pistol
March 14, 2013
After shooting approx 500 BB's without any problems, the pistol began discharging 2 BB's for each single trigger pull. If I shoot the pistol 3 times, 6 BB's are discharged. Does not do this for all firings just 50% of the time.
Pros:
Easy to load gas cartridge with minimum gas leak.
Cons:
Discharging multiple BBs with a single trigger pull.

Quality, fit, and feel are good. Good value for the money. Accuracy could be better, but so could my aim.
Pros:
Very authentic with nice heft.
Cons:
No adjustable sites, more power and accuracy, but it is a BB gun.

Great Defender Look A Like
February 5, 2013
This is one accurate little gun. At 40 ft, no issues hitting all rounds in the Middle of a silhouette dirty bird target. It is a bit awkward at first, just how you access the magazine and load it. However it loads faster than the Crosman c-11, the Winchester 11, and the Tanfoglio Witness. I have been able to put 4 cycles of ammo through this with one Co2 cartridge. It truly does sip Co2, even at 20 degrees outside. Back to accuracy. This little gun hits better than all the blow backs. If you are looking for a great gun with great accuracy and a nice "feel," this is a great choice.
Pros:
Just about everything.
Cons:
The STICKER on the mag port area is a bit annoying. I think Umarex could have figured something a bit nicer than a sticker.

great trianing pistol
January 25, 2013
I bought this gun from the airgun depot over 6 months ago. It works exactly as described and does make a safe training pistol. I have a real colt 45 and start new shooters with this gun and then switch them to the blowback winchester 1911 model. After making sure the person I am training is comfortable and follows all gun safety rules, I take them to an actual gun range. I have had great results. The gun functions perfectly and served a very useful purpose.
Pros:
It does work as advertised. I have not had any malfunctions after over 6 months of occasional use.
Cons:
I do wish the trigger and manual safety were just like an original colt 1911.

FUN, FUN, FUN COMPACT GUN GUN GUN!
October 29, 2012
Serious target shooters need not apply! Unless of course, you are looking for a little fun! The Colt Defender is a compact weapon that's feels great in your hand. The frame is all metal lending to a very realistic feel. As far as accuracy goes, at 20 yards a pie plate is riddled like swiss cheese. At longer distances, a pizza box becomes a decent target, especially with taped on balloons. In my opinion, this BB gun is surprisingly accurate, even with the occasional fliers. After all, its a smooth bore. In the fun factor department, the little colt scores a perfect ten! 16 shots will rip out of the barrel as fast as you can pull the trigger! If a stray, "unwanted" animal were to cross your side of the fence running? WOW! You'd have 16 shots peppering their path, laying down a serious hurting. BB's are a bit tricky to load, found that the grip feels cheap while open, and good when shut. So far, no problem with mine. Gas seals good. Always leave it empty. Very fun compact to stuff in your backpack while hiking. Would be very good choice as a deterrent for an large "animal," that might have made the decision to do you harm. Only weak point worth mentioning are the grips. I like how it feels in the hand, seems cheap plastic comes to mind when I take a look at it open. I average about 80 shots or more before a fresh Co2. Overall, if I had paid $30 more for it, I'd still be happy. I think this is a steal under $60.
Pros:
Fits perfect into Cosman's little holster they sell at wally world. Powerful. You can see silver BB's like tracers. Fast!
Cons:
Cheap plastic grip. Not accurate enough for squirrels.

Was Great for a couple of months
August 23, 2012
I bought this, from someplace else , for my girlfriend to let her have some plinking fun and to get her use to a nice realistic gun feel in her hands before I buy her a real one . Anyways, This was VERY accurate and she was getting about an inch and half groups all the time at 25' . Really liked seeing her hit a can and keep it rolling with each hit after another. Now , however , it has lost its accuracy for some odd reason . Too bad the sights are not adjustable like the 357 I bought from here . I have cleaned this gun , oiled , tried just about every BB I can find , and still no luck . aiming at a bulls eye on a 8" target it hits every where all around . After about 100 shots it more looks like I shot bird shot though a shot gun . Maybe me and her are doing something wrong but I doubt it . I ordered a new Beretta Elite II Co2 BB Gun from airgundepot which will be here in the morning , so hopefully she'll be happy with that one .
Pros:
Realistic feel Easy load BB's in slide out in handle Convenient co2 installation in grips Realistic look
Cons:
Nothing really My above main review might be user fault so it's not fair to down grade a product based on my own problems Would have been great to have adjustable rear sight

Worth the $$
May 23, 2012
The Colt Defender has a real nice feel and is quite a solid pistol. Much more metal and less plastic than most I have seen in this price range. Have put about 200 rounds through it in the 4 weeks I have had it. Pretty consistent and good accuracy for a pistol with a real long trigger pull. The reloading process is a bit awkward at first but after a few times you can figure out a good way to do it fairly quickly. Enjoy shooting it and happy with the purchase.
Pros:
Seems to be very well constructed with a lot of metal rather than plastic. Looks and feels a lot like the real thing. Got about 160 rounds from the first CO2 cartridge over 3 + weeks, was impressed with that!
Cons:
Long trigger pull.

Colt Defender fun
April 23, 2012
Pistol is well built ,lots of metal.Feels like the real thing.Good Quality, A fun gun for plinking.Accuracy is acceptable.The price is sweet for such a quality built gun.
Pros:
Authentic looking Colt.Great Quality build.
Cons:
BB follower is a bit tricky .It takes a couple of tries to lock the "bb follower spring.Once you get the hang of it works fine.You have to use 2 fingers to lock the reloading spring.1 to push it back,the other to keep it from snapping back,while you get to stay in reload mode.Hard to describe but you will love this gun.

Just received my Colt and MP5 in the mail today unpacked them, and started shooting a couple rounds with the Colt in the backyard. Whew!!! I tell you this packs power 500fps indeed or more than that. GUN SAFETY!!! Easy to reload the CO2 and BB's. The weight of the gun is excellent. Can't wait for the CP99 and Dan Wesson revolver. Thanks for a super quick and safe shipping AIRGUN DEPOT!!!
Pros:
Easy loading of CO2 and BB's (Guaranteed) Realistic look (Finish) and weight Great power for a shorty... : )
Cons:
NONE... I just love my Colt : )

December 9, 2011
I just got one of these yesterday and was plinking with it today. Feels great in your hand, Nice weight and balance. Hits hard and is very accurate. Nice little gun.
Pros:
Metal construction, has nice weight and feel. Easy to install CO2 cartridge and bb's. Accurate.
Cons:
Plastic grips. If they were hard rubber, that would make this gun just a little nicer.

solid and accurate
November 27, 2011
The quality and accuracy of the Colt Defender ranks among my other two favorites, the Makarov and the Crosman C41, both all metal like the Colt. The sights are bold, making for easy aiming. Like the Makarov, the Colt doesn't favor Copperhead BBs, but shoots trouble free using Daisy zinc coated BBs. Plenty of shots are had from each CO2 cylinder, which load easily.
Pros:
Solid and secure feeling in hand. BBs easier to load than with pistols with removable magazines. Value
Cons:
Nothing

Colt Defender
November 13, 2011
1st and fore most... Airgun Depot ships to FPO/APO meaning they support us overseas. It may not seem like a big deal but wait till you're station in some far away land where they don't habla and then tell me how you feel about...
Pros:
As for the pistola... Heft is all there, on target and good seal on the gas. I left a tube in for two weeks and fired countless BB's on the same tube.
Cons:
The grip is a little on the loose side and is very noticeable when pulling from a holster, however once on point with a firm grip you don't notice it. All in all for the price I paid not a bad deal and I'm happy.

This beauty lives up to its name -- within week of purchase, my shepherds and I were attacked at night by a pair of aggressive dogs running loose in the neighborhood -- happily, I was carrying my Defender, and I fired off several shots that hit their mark and had them running -- This pistol has heft and firing power and due to its superior balance, feels extremely comfortable to hold -- Long live Colt.

Awesome Pistol for an Awesome Price
December 15, 2010
I had bought this gun from a local retailer about 6 months ago, and while I absolutely loved the gun, at the time I needed the extra money for myself. I ended up returning the gun. This week I decided to reorder the Colt Defender after receiving a gift card for Christmas. I love this gun... Period, and of course I recommend it, so lets just go into the pros and cons of the gun itself. Pros: >Heavy and Realistic Feeling- The feeling of holding this gun is just breathtaking. The whole gun is constructed of metal (the grips are made of high quality plastic), and it weighs about 1.7 pounds and feels great to wield. This gun actually weighs nearly as much as the real Defender. >Looks- Everything about this gun mimics the real Defender. The only things missing are the signature Hogue grips and the Single-Action trigger, but I find that Double-Action is a bit better than Single-Action anyway. >Accuracy- Because there is no Blowback involved, the accuracy is great. 1-2 inch groups every time. The front sight also has a white dot painted on for target acquisition. >C02 Consumption and Velocity- I can get in between 80-100 shots off a single C02 canister. The velocity tops off at around 440-475 FPS, which means that the gun "COULD" be used for basic defense. >Holster Compatibility- Due to the realism, this gun fits all standard holsters, as well as concealed carry ones. CONS: >The only con I have for this gun is the built in 16-shot magazine. Although it would alter the design a bit, the addition of removable mags would make for easier reloads. Also, the gun arrived promptly in three days after shipment. A tip of the hat to Airgun Depot for their excellent service and their fast "within 24-hour" shipping times.

I bought this gun a few months ago, wanted to change co2 cartridge why does all the co2 leak out the barrel
By Staff on November 11, 2011

Answer:
Hi

Did you you leave the CO2 canister in the gun? If so it could have caused the seals to break down. You could try to use some Crosman Pellgun oil to help re lubricate the seals. Put one to two drops on the tip of a fresh CO2 cartridge and insert it into the gun. That could stop the leak.

If it doesn't you may want to see if you can get it repaired under warranty.
By stealthcrazy from Jamestown, ND on July 18, 2012

Answer:
I had the same thing happen to mine. It leaked out of the barrel, not around the cartridge. I put a few drops of 3 in 1 oil down the barrel and also a drop on a new cartridge before putting it in. I shot about 30 shots through it quick and it has solved the problem so far. I also stopped re-using bbs just in case that was causing the trouble, but I have a cardboard trap so that shouldn't be causing the problem. I use Copperhead bbs and they do have some imperfections so maybe there's a better bb out there.

By Staff on January 7, 2012

Answer:
It also will depend on temperature. Co2 is not as effective under 70 degrees so you won't get ad many shots if it's cold.
