But that's what I like and can afford. I like me some Les Baer stuff too.

Ruger. Their 1911s have some of the quality features of the high dollar 1911s but at a reasonable price. You need to form your own opinion but I would stay away from Kimbers all you are buying is the name, there is nothing special about their guns. For about $1100 you can get a Smith and Wesson performance center 1911 that has phenomenal feel and trigger.

Springfield Loaded. Love that pistol.

The one I shoot the most is my Para Expert (not GI Expert).

I've been wondering myself how the new Colt government models compare with the similarly priced Kimbers. I've got a buddy with a Kimber Eclipse II, and it's probably the nicest pistol I've ever shot. Insanely well designed and built.

I am not one to tout a brand but Imma gonna ask....My colt is 41 years old and has never had a FTF with the exception of some handloads I crimped too tight. It shoots where I aim it. One of my best friends has a Kimber that he likes to call "particular" about what loads it "likes". What makes these copies so much grander than the original?

Can't say I've ever seen my buddy's Kimber ever jam. If your friend's is, he should send it back. Most don't.

My Colt M1991A1 has performed flawlessly since I bought it 13 years ago.

"by a mile" ? Really?

What other 1911's have you shot for comparison?

Have you shot Wilson, Baer, or Brown for just a starting point?
