Will a defender receiver fit properly with a commander slide?

Also, is there a difference between a 9mm and a 45 receiver on the Defender or is it the same piece with just a different slide and barrel assembly?

Dont know about the Defender but I built a CCO in 38 super. Used a officers frame and an older commander top end. Had to make the mag though.

I think that the Defender has a slightly shorter dust cover than the Officers ACP. The feed ramps are different between .45 and .38 Super/ 9mm.

Yes the feed ramps are different along with the ejector but 75% of the time they will work. I had to change nothing on my built CCO. Pics up on the other CCO thread.
