This weapon was fine. It was the M84 that had the problem with the sliding grip.

By Dante G.

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.

By Robyn P.

Fantastic piece, very happy with it. Works great. Easy to load and shoot


Now, all these people talking about leaks, but I don't hear a word on lubracation!!!!!!!!!!!! That big drop of silicone oil, heavy type on the neck of the CO2 cartridge will keep the gun in super shape & shooting for a very long time. then before you put it away a spray of light silicone oil where the neck of the cart goes on that green seal-can't lose. It will pay off!!!!!!!!!!!

I think the COLT DEFENDER is an excellent airgun.

I wish they made a chrome or nickel one, with black grips that would be great!!! I like everything about it!

A little heavy for my wife

Very nice little pistol very accurate

I also recently purchased the Barrea 400 kit, it arrived on time it's a wonderful looking rifle however it did not come with the battery and the charger it was supposed to and I'm still having trouble getting that sent to me, I doubt I will buy anything else from airgundepot if they can't send everything that I paid for.

I truly like the weight and the feel of this BB pistol it fires straight and is a pleasure to shoot.

I wish it had a larger capacity to hold more BBs and I wish it were easier to load

By Charles M.USAFebruary 12, 2023 Verified Purchase

In my opinion this is a, to coin the phrase, must have pistol. I had to wait a couple of months, because of backorder, for it to arrive. Came close to cancelling the order because of the long wait. I am now very pleased with myself for not doing so. I have many co2 pistols, most of them .177and 22 caliber pellet pistols. Also have a couple of BB pistols. I would have never thought that in such a short time of ownership that this Colt Defender would become, and I hate to say this, my favorite.

Accuracy, easy to load and a phenomenally realistic look and feel.

Longer than normal draw on the trigger. Not a problem, you just have to get used to it.

By KathyJanuary 30, 2021

The only Pro I have is that it was free since I got it for Christmas.

Not even a month old, the CO2 cartridge leaked whenever I put another in. Apparently a seal. Sent it back to Umarex. They sent me another gun. Went to use it for the first time and I can't get the Grip to slide back into locked position. So I won't be able to use this one either. Great product. :(

By MikeDecember 11, 2020

Anyone know where you can get new seals for these?

My Defender bb pistol suddenly stopped shooting. The trigger operates with the safety off just as it does with the safety on. I press the trigger all the way back and nothing happens. CO2 cartridge is good. Any suggestions what to do? I like the pistol and want to get it working again.

Is the barrel rifled?

asked Leslie Frederick Scheeler

Is this gun blowback?

asked cory

No, it is not a blowback, as per the Specifications.


I've tried replacing several co2 cartridges and they all leaked severely when I tried screwing them in. The leak's all came from the seal. Is the seal defective? They were new co2 cartridges.

asked dave

Put a drop or two of Peligon oil on co2 cartridge when you put it in. This should solve problem

Scott from USA

What type of extra magazines should I buy? Where are they available? I didn't find any specifically listed in AGD's Accessories lists.

asked Kevin from USA

It has a fixed magazine thats built into the handle you cant get any for it.. you just poor the bbs into the handle..

r adam from USA

The Colt Defender does not use magazines, the pistol grip pops back and you load it on the side of the handle, but don't let that deter you this is still one of my personal favorites, it has alot of power and is alot of fun to shoot.

Ed from USA

Kevin, the Colt Defender's magazine feed is an integral part of the pistol grip and holds 16 BB's. Unfortunately there is no way to replace the "clip" as there really is no "clip". I have found that the 16 shots are plenty and the ease of reload is such that I have not missed being able to exchange clips.

Louis from USA

Is this BB pistol reliable?

asked David Robinson

I have found the Colt Defender to be very reliable and remarkably accurate. In addition one CO2 cartridge lasts much longer than the number of shots referenced. I have owned two other air pistols in the last 50 years and I like this one the best. My only complaint is the length and weight of the trigger pull, but even that is becoming less of an issue the more I shoot this neat little weapon. I would purchase this pistol again if I am ever able to wear this one out!

Louis from USA

I have had this pistol for a few months now. I have had no problems. The pistol hold a charge for weeks at a time and fires after sitting for weeks. It's a good gun especially for the price.


I have one of these an there is a "pellet" bb lodged in it and I cant figure out how to get it out. Any suggestions?

asked Vincent

Is it a blowback pistol?

asked Andrew from USA

No its not the hammer is just for looks and it doesn't slide either.

wayne from USA

NO! If it was a blowback it would say so.




I have purchased this gun and I love pretty much everything about it. I have recently noticed that when I load a co2 cartridge, it leaks... is there a way to fix this? The rubber around the needle looks pristine... but that is where its leaking. Have you experienced any of these issues? If so were you able to fix them?

asked Nick

Try putting a drop of PellGun oil on the tip of the CO2 powerlet before installing it into the pistol. The seal needs a little lubrication to help seal. AirgunDepot sells the PellGun oil.

Tod from USA

try putting a drop of pell-gun oil on the end of the co2 cartridge or replace the seal. try to not shoot rapid fire as this will harden the rubber seal. remember your buying a $30.00 pistol. all my co2s are refurbs and all work perfectly

robert from USA

I have the same problem..rubber looks perfect but leaks co2


Yes Always put a dab of Air gun Lube on the top where t willseal works every time and will keep it from seeping. if you do not shoot your Rifle or Pistols or Revolvers Co2's everyday ,that is. Just like our real firearms Maintenance is key.Keep your guns wet ready to fire and dust cover them when not in everyday use.Take care of your investments as Real Live Ammo is expensive ,a great economical Training device, and helps introduce The Newbie our Kids and also Liberals or doubters to our World. Then work your way up to blow Back Co2 Steel BB and Pellet and don't forget Airsoft to.

Vrmnt Hntr 45 from USA

RULES ... never over tighten the CO2 ,, use all the air up in a CO2 canister .. and when the gun is not being used take the CO2 out .. oil and clean your guns regularly .. and for a quick fix to your seal leaking use a strip of plummers tape over the tip of the CO2 but once the seal is damaged the gun is just cheaper to buy a new one then it is to get it fixed unless you work for a BB gun store where you can get the parts and do the repair your self .

Barry from USA

Quick fix only is to use a small strip of plummers tape over tip of the CO 2 tube before you load the CO 2 in the gun .. but once a air gun leaks the seal is damaged and the gun either needs a new seal or it is just cheaper to throw it out and buy a new .. all my guns are work excellent .. RULE . always use all CO 2 up when shooting your guns oil them after every 3 rd. time and NEVER over tighten the CO 2 and NEVER leave the CO 2 in the gun to give the seal a break ...

Varry Atherton

Does it use a compressed air cartridge

asked John Lampard

Uses 12-gram CO2 cartridges. We can only ship Co2 ground, it is illegal on airplanes.

Scott from USA

asked Nirmal

I bought this pistol from hongkong and checked it there it was good and powerful, but when I came back to India the same gun was like a toy pistol.The velocity has gone down 95%. Any help please?

asked nirmal yadav

How heavy and long are the trigger pulls on these?

asked sourdough

What kind of laser will fit on it?

asked max thompson

A small handgun laser, not the kind you use for an AR.

Mark from USA

can you buy a silencer for this gun ? ,link?

asked luke

Unfortunately, there is not a suppressor for this gun that we carry. Also, if you do by chance find a suppressor, it will simply be for looks as opposed to function.

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.

Scott from USA

Will this ptstol kill a snake or squirrel,, from ,, say 10 yards ?

asked Dayle Young

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.

Steve from USA

if is pocible tha recive a copy of the owner manual the manual tha i ready recive is to small i cand reed,and is no to clear

asked raymundo from USA

I am sorry but we do not carry extra owners manuals. The manufacturer should be able to get you 1 though.

Scott from USA

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

asked Bob

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

asked dinesh

Hi Dinesh, Unfortunately, we cannot ship this to India due to shipping restrictions. The CO2 cartridge can be replaced and is has an average/medium noise level? Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Team

Test from USA

How many rounds can be fired from one CO2 tank ?

asked Moses

About 50+ I believe.

Carter from USA

I think like 40 or so.


What is the average amount of shots that can be fired from this weapon per co2 cylinder?

asked Devon leaman

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.

Scott from USA

About 150, with the last few dwindling in power, volume, and range.


does this gun fire pellets as well as BB's?

asked jonny

Hi No this is a bb only pistol. AGD Staff

Scott from USA

I bought this gun a few months ago, wanted to change co2 cartridge why does all the co2 leak out the barrel

asked Barry Bivins

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.


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.
