    I think the best production 1911 is the Kimber Super Match II, but they cost $1700-$1800 in stores.

    I collect 1911s, so I'm giving you feebback based on experience and ownership of many models.
    Any thoughts on the STI Lawman? Considering it, SA TRP and Kimber Raptor or Grand Raptor. Need to look at the Colt Special Combat you listed above.

    I currently own a Kimber and a Smith & Wesson .45.

    They are both very good guns.

    The Smith is 20 years old (I bought it new) and carried it as my duty gun.

    The Kimber is brand new and a dream to shoot - it comes with a lot of "gunsmith" custom work already done to it.

    Everyone knows how good the Springfield is -

    So I guess I'm saying "get the one you want" - the one that really turns you on, because all three models and brands are outstanding.

    i voted for springer. mainly because i have one and it is a fantastic 1911. it's a champion operator.

    based on everything i've heard from kimber owners at the range, i would never buy one. just my preference.

    i hear smith has nice nice 1911's though.

    I've got a chance to see and shoot a few of the Smith 1911's. I was surprised at how well they shot truth be told.

    Can't go wrong wit ha Springer in my opinion either
