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.
