Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The slide has very little play to the frame. The trigger has just a little bit of creep. This pistol has a Series ’80 style firing pin safety. We did not fire this firearm. As with all used firearms, it may need a thorough cleaning to meet your maintenance standards
Our Assessment: This is a Colt Night Defender Lightweight, a Talo Exclusive Officer’s-model 1911-style pistol chambered in .45 ACP. This example is in Excellent condition showing little sign of use. A lightweight, compact pistol chambered for the potent .45 cartridge and with a 1911 trigger will make for a great concealed carry pistol
