Shipping a Firearm

I have to send back my New Colt Defender to Colt for repair. Most expensive firearm i've ever bought and its already jacked up.

Since I am shipping to the Manufacturer I guess I dont need an FFL from Texas?

Any help would be appreciated?

ok, i've bought several Taurus' and never had a single problem. I go high end for a carry weapon and I get to send it back in the first 30 days and they arent sure they will fix it for free.

Just curious what happened to it? I heard Colts aren't what they used to be.

The pin between the safety and the slide lock is loose and coming away from the frame. Its far enough from teh frame that the safety wont move back to hot without screwing with it. I am very dissapointed. I may sell it once I get it back and get a Tauraus in .45

I actually had a Kimber Pro carry in my hand and went for the Colt.

10 years ago i had a Colt full size government model and i loved that thing. Used to shoot it 3 times a week at the range and actually competed with it for a few months. Wish i never sold it. Nowadays i think other companies have stepped up their game on the 1911's and are making better products than Colt unfortunately.
