The Defender is the best of every world combined. Configured in 9mm with 17 round magazines, this 2011 has every performance upgrade packed into it. To our surprise, when compared to other single stack 1911s without a magazine, the Defender is 8 ounces lighter. With the mandatory Marvel disconnector rail slot cut in, this 2011 promises to send projectiles down range faster and smoother than the competition. Built with the same precision standards, the Defender places rounds exactly where they are intended to land. You can’t go wrong with this 2011.
