    Kimber vs. Para

    Ok, I am in the coming months, going to get my first 1911. I just want some opinions on which of these manufactures have the best quality gun.
    I'm not partial to any one nor know much about 1911 style semi-autos.

    I am looking at either Kimber or Para.

    OMG, what a decision! I'm going to enjoy watching your decision proccess...
    It's got to be nice knowing you can't make a wrong decision.

    There are spotty reviews and complaints on both companies. But, I prev had a Kimber, and it was very accurate. Now that Kimber has gone back to the internal extractor design, I would buy a Kimber if I ever bought another 1911, although the Smith and Wesson 1911s are right up there too.

    S&W has some awesome customer sevice, and I have rarely read anything neg said about them.

    I am happy to announce that Kimber is my pick hands down and I have narrowed it down to one of these (for time being) atleast. These are beautiful weapons.

    Be aware that the the finish on the blackened steel doesn't seem to be as durable. It scratches very easily.

    Kimber. I have a Pro Carry that I do in fact carry. Never had an issue. I want an all steel Kimber next. It is good to see Kimber getting the respect they deserve on this forum.
