Looking at Ruger, Springfield, Colt, and Kimber. My buddy has a Kimber Eclipse which is awesome. I had a Springfield mil-spec which was not very nice. Every Ruger firearm I've owned has been fantastic, so I like them. Just looking for opinions on models. I know nothing about the Colt models, and very little about the difference in the SA Operator, Loaded, Range Officer, etc. And I have no idea how the design and build quality of the different brands compares to one another.

I have a Sig 1911 and love it. I had a Springfield before and I feel like the quality, fit and finish with the Sig is superior to the Springfield.

I have the Ruger in Commander size that I love. Can't go wrong with the ones Jhenderson mentioned.

Love my Ruger. Has a couple hundred rounds through and not so much as a hiccup.

That is an easy question.

Springfield Range Officer, period.

Read up on them...great gun....Kimber is a joke, IMO....custom gun aka trademark...again read up.
