      #1. Dan Wesson for fit and finish. A dream to carry and shoot.

      I like my Dan Wesson CBOB. Extremely good lockup, slide to frame fit, and it uses all Ed Brown parts and wolff springs throughout. No MIM.

      I just refound thia site after playing on several others for a bit. As of now my favorite is a toss up between my Springer 45 Longslide and my Springer 9x23 rebuilt by John Harrison. I may change my opinion early in 2009 as I should take delivery of a Fusion Bobtailed Commander in January. If its as good a shooter as advertised I will be a very happy boy. Looks Damn good if I do say so!

      I've had some good Colts. Still got one though I'm thinking about selling/trading it. It spends way too much time in my safe and I don't like guns that do that in my collection. I've not had a Colt yet though that I didn't like.

      Out of:

      4 Kimbers
      4 Paras
      2 Colts
      1 Springfield
      1 Llama It was a test type thing and it was a total waste of money...
      1 Les Baer
      1 Wilson

      I'd have to go with Springfield or Les Baer with preference going to Springfield due to lack of "Break in" and lower price point.

      The last 1911 I bought was a Les Baer TRS that was set up exactly how I wanted it, up until that point I was about to but a SA TRP.

      I am satisfied with my one colt. It has eaten about 4500 rounds without a hitch. I did put in a high ride wilson combat grip safety.
      I think if I had it to over again, I'd get the base stainless model and have it customized to my liking. I don't like the holster-eating front slide serrations.

      Kimber

      I have both Springfield and Kimber. I use the Spring for targets and my Kimber Tactical Ultra II for carry - both quality handguns -

      The Ed Browns are at the top of the tier, period. Followed closely by Les baer. The older pre-redundant safety Kimbers were great guns for the money, but the quality has since slipped some what. The other brands are somewhere in the middle, and good value for the dollar. The present day Colts . . . . . .I won't even go there.

      Maybe I am biased. I have never shot any other 1911 but my Kimber. It shoots great. I have shot many other handguns, and it tops all of them.
