I was close to buying one myself but now I am leaning toward just getting a Springfield. I understand all brands have some problems but Kimber seems to be having a lot lately. Something has happened over there. Where there's smoke there's fire.
I love my Springfield Loaded 1911, and I would not steer you away from that brand. But read my comments above about the Springfield rifle I bought, and resist the temptation to drink the "bash Kimber" coolaid, or the "bash [insert name here] coolaid." Pay no attention to what a bunch of us mooks on the web say, and go handle some of these different guns for yourself. Rent the ones you like if you can, or borrow from a friend who has one like it.

I have little or no experience with Colts, except with a Colt Government .380 that I own. It is quite tight, and the appearance is of high quality, but it is like a lot of .380 pistols in that it isn't the most reliable thing around. But I have no experience with Colt 1911s, so I'm not qualified to comment.

Annoyed Man,

Thanks for that information. All I asked was information on the 2 guns listed. I do not know why this got so out of hand. Those who have given me info on what was listed, Thank you very much.

Guns are like parachutes, if your ever in a situation that you need one and you dont have one, you'll probably never need one again.

Smart buy You will be amazed at how accurate the pistol will shoot. I own two one in 45 CDP Pro and the other in 10mm Eclipse Custom in 5 inch. Both are scary accuarate and have been flawless. I carry one of them every day. PICS now or we dont believe you lol Take Care. :cheers2:
