      I like my Dan Wesson's. If I had to go high dollar, probably a Wilson Professional.

      I love my Rock Island 1911 Tactical. It has been flawless right out of the box plus I only paid $425. Their customer service is #1. Ivan, the US rep, hangs out on the forums over at m1911.org and will take care of any issues you have. Unfortunately, more people are starting to find out about them so their prices are increasing

      Springfield gets my vote....and here's why.

      I have owned Colt, Kimber, Dan Wesson, and STI. I have since sold ALL of the above EXCEPT a .38 Super Colt Combat Commander that my father owned, and a slicked up Officer's ACP in .45ACP that my father gave me as a backup gun when I was still a LEO.

      I now go with Springfield Armory exclusively.

      The smartest money I have EVER spent on a 1911 was two years ago when I bought my first SPRINGFIELD ARMORY LOADED 5". It outshot the Kimber I had been carrying, and was more reliable than the STI I also owned.

      I was absolutely won over to the Springer.

      My next 1911 is going to be a Springfield Armory Micro Compact...as soon as it gets into my local shop.

      If I like the Micro Compact as much as my beloved Glock 30 as a carry piece, I may even start carrying a 1911 again.

      Right out of the box I'ed have to vote for Kimber. Here's why. Until the prices went crazy you could pick one up for what a Taurus costs now. I have never found any fault or isues with mine. I have one or more 1911's except Wilson:STI or othe high end Guns. My Kimbers,Springfield,Taurus, and Colts, are all 100% reliable. The Kimber Target I own will shoot under 2" at 50yards off the bench. The others 2-3" at 25 yards.

      Hi. not to knock your RIA, but I heard that the 1911's from the Phillippines (RIA, High Standard, & Charles Daley) had soft locking lugs in the slide. Any problems?

      1911's are not supposed to have firing pin blocks. If your too in competent to keep it cocked and locked safely you should'nt have one.

      Along time ago John Browning invented the perfect pistol. It only needed a few changes to get us to where we are today. Springfield Armory stays pretty close to that design. If I were going to buy a Kimber it would be the warrior. They biult it for the marines, and the marines told them to "keep your hands off of it". No firing block or series II crap on this one.


      RIOT EARP, COULD YOU ELABORATE ON THIS FOR ME. I AM CONSIDERING BUYING EITHER A KIMBER 1911 OR A SPRINGFIELD, THIS COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR ME.
      THANKS,


      OLE

      Yep, this should have been multiple choice.

      I like pretty much all of 'em. But if I was to go shopping right now, I'd probably check out the Colts first.

      That said, my every day carry is a series 1 Kimber and it's been a good one.

      tough call

      I'm a 1911 guy first and foremost with one rather important caviat, that they work. After 2 Springfield Ultra Compacts, 1 Pro and 1 very nice stainless mil spec that failed to feed and eject from the start I am done with Springfield. Many have had good experiences but mine have been a disappointment. For those of us who are not savy gun smiths and do not relish sending our handguns across country to have work done dependability from the start means a lot. Kimber has also had it's issues but I have a pre series compact stainless aluminum that is working well for me as well as a full size custom classic stainless series II that never hicupped. From what I've owned I'll vote Kimber but admit that I am starting to think the Colt guys are on to some thing with the everything else is a compromise perspective. My next full size will be sporting a horsey unless I can trade a kidney in towards a Wilson. YMMV

      Peace,

      I almost picked one up last gun show but the price was so low (low 400) I was afraid. Then I started to ask around the range and found two people who had them and love them. I won't turn one down now.
