just got my defender few days ago (bringing a gun out of a store always feels good). dismantled it and cleaned/eezoxed it and had a nightmare aligning the slide stop pin and the barrel link. Spent a lot of hours figuring how to assemble it back. but at the range... 100 rnds no trouble... 200 none... till the shooting hand numbs. no trouble at all. I really was thinking CCW of it and it seems perfect.
