good starter gun
November 7, 2016
I was surprised with the accuracy of this gun
keeping the gun on a soft shot makes it a good starter gun
the gun doesn't shoot hard enough,2 co2 cartriges would help

Nice gun for the price.
October 3, 2016
I ordered this pistol, just because I liked the looks, It shoots fairly hard, I can't commet on the accuracy, as I have bad eye sight, also, it has nice weight to it. I just wish that it has more power . It is a nice gun over all..
Nice looking, good power.
Too much things molded in.

Colt Defender BB PIstol a Thumbs Up!
September 7, 2016
Recently bought another BB pistol for more $$ from another online website which I haven't been thrilled by. I saw the AirGunDepot ad for this item & took a chance. This pistol is an absolute bargain. Compared to the other major brand BB pistol this Colt is metal and looks like the real thing. As for being "refurbished" my gun arrived wihtout a scratch and looks as though brans spankin' new. It also functions flawlessly and much better than the "new BB pistol I purchased elsewhere. For this price you'd better buy one before they run out.
Metal construction, dynamite looks and operates smoothly without any glitches.
Absolutely nothing negative I can say about this pistol.

Three Star Pistol
August 18, 2016
I bought the refurbished model on a lightning deal. The gun looks brand new out of the sturdy box and bubble-wrapped bag. I actually prefer this method of packaging over the hard plastic formed containers being used on most pistols. The Colt is really a nice looking little gun, worth having on that basis alone for the price. It feels nice to hold, good weight, trigger fits my hand. The handle is designed to slide open to expose the CO2 loading space and on the other side of the handle, the built-in BB clip. That's where the problems with mine began. First, the handle popped off the spring that pushes it out. It pushed the handle right off its track. Easy enough to reinstall, just be careful when pushing the spring release button from now on. OK, that's solved, now let's load the BBs. The top of the spring slide tab doesn't protrude enough to get a fingernail on it to move it down to the detent space that holds it open. I use the tool that came with my CZ75 to hold it down and lock it. I loaded the BBs easy enough, clipped the handle back in place, took it off safe, and fired. I couldn't find the first few holes in the target, but moved to 10 feet, fired again and discovered they were very low. I installed a small laser, started again, and got a shotgun pattern in the first four shots. Then the gun started shooting blanks. I opened the handle, brought the spring down, the BB string straightened out, released the spring, and fired the next 10 with no issues. I did that several times. Several times the gun stopped shooting the BBs until the last 8-10 BBs fired with no issues. I learned not to load with more than 10-12 BBs for trouble free operation. Accuracy was poor, even with the laser. I'm not the best shot, but I'm not bad either. I have 29 pistols. This one is near the bottom of the list in accuracy. Most guns have a personality; this one does too, for sure. I'll figure it out. Not sure what to do about the accuracy issue, and the other stuff is not a reason to return this one. Three stars out of five, minus one for accuracy, minus another for the fiddly nature of the handle and the misfires.
Good looks, nice to hold, pretty good trigger.
Handle slide is a good idea, not well-executed on my pistol. BBs tend to misfire when the clip is filled to capacity. Needs a laser for any kind of accuracy, and even at that, not so good. Recommended only if you are looking for a bargain, but a Daisy 426 or 415, Baby Desert Storm or Brodax are better choices for about the same amount of cash.

Refurb Defender.
May 4, 2014
I collect 1911 airguns so I purchased this at the refurb price just to have it in the collection.
Fun to shoot. Looks good.
Lots of non functioning parts, but ok for the refurb price. Can't expect to much for the price.

Fun gun to shoot fast
October 30, 2012
Nice weight, metal frame. Fairly accurate. I love how compact it is. Fits perfect into a crosman holster.
Excellent quality Fast for a Co2 BB pistol Reasonably accurate Great a self defense weapon Compact and packable
Grip is a bit cheesy.

Colt Defender refurb BB Air Pistol
March 10, 2012
Shoots well for a refurb. Good weight; feels like the real thing. Downloaded some targets from the net. Found a good one of Bin Laden to shoot up.
Good weight. Shoots well. Empties without any jams; quite smooth. Good value for the money.
One blemish but to be expected with a refurb. Did not like the loading system; it felt clumsy. Would have been better with a clip style feed.

Nice Look, Nice Feel.
March 9, 2012
This pistol feels great in my small hands, looks good too. I bought both the Beretta Elite II and this Colt. The Beretta is the better of the two but needs a bigger hand for the large grip. The shooter should be able to operate the entire pistol with one hand so the other hand can reach for the next magazine to load.
Look, weight, construction.
Tough to load.

Colt Defender BB Pistol
February 7, 2012
I was absolutely thrilled with the quality and workmanship on this gun. It's weight is perfect and feels like the real thing. The "Colt" lettering is clean and straight. The chamber cover appears to be real but is a well placed brushed aluminum style decal. I found it very accurate to shoot and it's safety well placed for safe operation. With the safety on, the trigger can be pulled all the way back with no resistance and will NOT fire. While shooting, the trigger pull is long but didn't bother me. The C02 was easy to install since the grips slide back out of the way and then flip back allowing complete access. The C02 tightening screw is hidden in the bottom of the grip for a realistic look and has a spring to keep it tucked under. It's screw handle is just a bit small but still manageable. The weaver rail allowed me to install an NC Star red laser on with no trouble. If you're looking for an inexpensive fun shooter, this is it. If you're looking for something with levers and gadgets look for something else. I gave it four stars because I did have an issue with the C02 hissing for a few seconds after installation but Airgun Depot's customer service was amazingly quick to address my concern.
It's weight, accuracy, clean lines, fun to shoot, realism.
No movable parts other than grips.

Great Gun
January 25, 2012
I received it today and put two co2 cartridges through it already! For being a refurbished this gun is in great shape, the only flaws are a few spots where the paint is rubbed off. I was surprised at how quiet it is, I have another co2 pistol that's twice as loud as this gun. This gun is very easy to shot! I'm looking forward to putting more co2 and bb's through it.

How is this CO2 air pistol different from the Daisey Powerline which looks much like this pistol and has about the same amount of capacity? It shoots 480 feet per second.

Excellent deal
December 4, 2011
A friend and I have been putting this excellent pistol through its paces shooting targets. The pistol I received is like new, works perfectly, and is a joy to shoot. It's an accurate shooter, and feels solid in hand. I like that it doesn't have a removable magazine, but a quick and easy loading slot that's part of the handle, and the grip locks into place. Since I've had problems with Copperhead BBs in this, and my Makarov, I use Daisy zinc coated BBs without problems. The sights are bold, making for easy sighting For the refurb price, it's a steal.

Great for money
June 14, 2011
Arrived pretty much indistinguishable from new. Works well. For me I wish I'd put the extra into either the px4 or cp99 blow back pistols but that is to have the blow back operation more than a quality issue. Love the all metal build and can't imagine a better bb pistol for the $$

The condition of this refurbished air pistol was far better than I anticipated. The only blemish I found was a 1/2 inch long scuff mark. The pistol shoots great. I get about about 80 shots per cartridge. The sights are almost dead on. This is a joy to shoot.

OK gun - sub-standard refurb
November 30, -0001
The gun is ok, but the grip doesn't stay in place. You are supposed to push the grips back to put the CO2 cartridge in, but the grip on this refurb slide around freely. I had to fix it so it wouldn't rattle or slide when I shoot. I don't think I will buy any more refurbs from this place.

Hi Dinesh,

What kind of laser will fit on it?

By Bob from AZ on March 19, 2012
I bought this gun just before xmas 2011. Fired it off & on for about 2 months. I really like the gun. Untill i went to replace the CO2 tank. The 2nd and 3rd tank leaked out. so I looked for a seal or o ring in the pistol port and didnt see or find one. I tried the drops of oil & still leaked out. Q1- is there a seal or oring in the gun that prevents leakage? Q2 what does it look like & where can i buy some? Q3 does this problem happen with every co2 tank change? Q4 what can i do to resolve this problem permantly or at least for a 5 box of CO? Thanks i appreciate any info that will help solve this problem
By Staff on March 20, 2012

I would recommend contacting the manufacturer of the gun to get new seals

Will this ptstol kill a snake or squirrel,, from ,, say 10 yards ?
By Staff on May 2, 2012

If you are looking to take out small game I would recommend a pellet pistol over a bb pistol, as you will be far more likely to get a clean kill.

By randy from Lexington, ky on May 21, 2012
Are these worth the money? How do they hold up?
By Staff on May 24, 2012

Our refurbished guns are usually decent quality.
They all have a 30 day return policy though so if you do have problems we'll take care of it.
