      The Pointman Seven is a 5” series 70 style 1911
      Beautiful finish on DWs. Plus I like the lack of a firing pin safety and no MIM.

      The Pointman is great, as is the entire Dan Wesson line. I have the CBOB.






      I plan on getting a Valor, which is an upgrade over the PM and CBOB, and in the class of some of the other 1911s I listed as being premium production models.

      I would consider the CBOB and Pointman lower mid range 1911s, albeit very good quality guns.

      I don't see the Valor on the website??

      What is the trigger weight on the CBOB?

      The Trigger feels to be about 4-5 lbs.

      The Valor is brand new and didn't make it to CZ's website yet. Its DW's new top of the line 1911.

      Here's a generic Valor pic. Its stainless with a black Teflon finish. I think its beautiful. Right now, they are hard to come by, however.

      This is totally off topic but every time I open this thread my AVG software tells me that there is two viruses in somebody's Photobucket links. Never had this happen before and it list two links or photos infected.

      I'm not sure what the "DK" means, but I would personally choose the S&W. I was in the market for a Springfield Loaded, until i found the SW1911. That gun just felt so much better to me in every way. And thats just the $830 version, not this "DK" model. Its all just personal preference i guess, but thats how I feel about it.

      DK stands for Doug Koenig, a competitive shooter. S&W is his sponsor. No major wins since 2003. Apparently S&W 1911DK is their competition 1911.

      Then again, I like Todd Jarrett better but that alone won't motivate me to get a Para Ordnance.

      You are comparing a $1,000 service gun to the $1,500 competition guns in the poll.

      I shouldn't worry...

      Both Kimber and S&W use a Swartz Safety FPB. Swartz's are finicky about grip safety alignment to allow you to fire. Kimber's Swartz uses a small plunger pin that is prone to shearing. One more thing to worry about when competing.

      Springfields have no FPB and use a titanium firing pin instead. Yours has a forged frame, slide and barrel.

      All three in the poll have MIM internals that is unacceptable in a $1,500 gun.

      At the price you paid for yours, you can have a gunsmith replace all the MIM with tool steel and still have money left over, confident your gun is more reliable than those in the poll.

      Best 1911

      "In your price range, I'd suggest an STI Targetmaster. For the money, you can afford a full on competition gun (MSRP 1,440) and one of the best values for a bull barrel 1911. STI has one of the best 1911 actions in the industry and is the go-to supplier for 1911 pattern race guns. "

      If price is not an obstacle, which 1911 would you buy, including true custom models?

      Thank you.

      Have to say the Springer. I have two and they are two of the best pistols I have ever had
      Neither has yet to not do what it's supposed to do over thousands of rounds. Are they the best? Depends on how you look at things. I've had 1911's that cost em a whole lot more and were supposed to be "top of the line" but failed on more than one occasion and made me not trust them 100%....So they had to go away. My 9mm is a Brazil gun ..the other is an older used to be middle of the road 45 ACP pistol that was rebuilt by me and a tool maker friend of mine. I have no idea what it would sell for..It's priceless to me though. That's the great thing about 1911's. There's so much you can do to them to make each one unique. I have never looked at a 1911 in the box without thinking what I will want to do to it to make it my own. It would do my no good to buy some custom shop gun. I don't want to trust someone elses work when I can take it and do what I want and I know exactly what was done and how it's going to perform

      Springfield TRP 1300 and it's got lots of custom features. Some hand fitting and 2 inch accuracy at 25 yards.

      Sometimes S&W have some major sales and you could probably get an S&W performance center model for around $1400 or a little more.
