About the Gun

This Colt Defender Series model is a short, light semi-automatic intended for concealed carry and police backup roles. The New Agent handles like a classic M1911, complete with a single-action trigger and a short single-column magazine. It employs the Colt Series 80 firing system. The New Agent has no sights in the conventional sense of rear notch and front post. Instead, a narrow full-length groove has been milled into the top of the slide, called a Trench Style sight. The bushingless bull barrel locks directly into the slide.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed by John Browning and was adopted by the United States Ordnance Department along with the Colt-Browning automatic pistol in 1911. It has also been made the official military handgun chambering by several other governments, notably Argentina, Mexico and Norway. The 45 Automatic is the most powerful military handgun cartridge in use today. This is a heavy and powerful sub-sonic round. Although its muzzle energy can exceed 400 ft-lbs, its velocity and bullet weight creates a steep trajectory curve that limits its effective range to self-defense distances.
