I have been wanting one of these since they first came out and read all the reviews but haven't heard anything about them lately. I know they are not readily available here in the PRK but so are a lot of stuff which people still are able to come up with.

Here's a review of one

I don't have a Colt New Agent, but have the very similar Defender, and have put about 800 rounds through it. The Defender is stainless instead of blued, and has regular sights instead of the groove of the New Agent. I believe that many of the internal parts are the same for the two guns.

The Defender is a good little gun, and has been reliable and accurate for me. I've had mine modified a bit with a Wilson beavertail, slim Alumagrips, McCormick trigger, Wilson magazine, steel checkered backstrap and dehorned slide.

Aside from the sights, finish and a few minor cosmetics I think the Defender is much the same as the Agent. Given a choice I'd get the Agent, but I just bought a Defender last week. I want to replace the grip safety, which Wilson did you get?

Since the Agent isn't yet on the list I presume it won't be because of the roster.

.

The Wilson grip safety was already on the gun when I bought it used, so I'm not sure which one it is. I have looked on the Wilson website and there are several listed, so be careful that you buy the correct one.
