I paid 799$ a year ago, if you can find one now, they are going for that or more used
I could not give my Defender a higher recommendation!
I am a long time 5" Government shooter and the transition to the mini-me 1911 took some adjustment. It has run flawlessly since I mastered the 3" barrel.
This gun is great for CQB which is what it is designed to do. For jobs >8m I go to my 5" Government. For 1 shot, 1 stop I put the 460 Roland Barrel in the Government.
The Defender gives me all day carry comfort with 8+1 45 ACP +P power. IMHO, it just doesn't get any better.
This one went for 895$ AA Auction, NIB Series 90 Defender
Another great Colt 3" is the New Agent.
Same great Colt Series 90 action but in black, w/wood stocks and no sights, just a view channel for optimum carry.
Price and ability to find one is similar to the Defender.
You won't be disappointed with a Colt!
