    I'm a pretty big fane of Les Baer although now I own an Ed Brown and it is very well made. I have yet to shoot the Brown so at this point I'm still a Baer fan.

    I have a Kimber Pro Raptor And a Sig P220. I like them both but the Kimber is a real tackdriver!

    Not many opinions on the Sig Sauer line of 1911's on this forum, any reasons why not??? I've been looking
    at the Revolution Nitron. I would like to hear your comments/opinions.

    Thanks....

    Good Lord! I love them all. Even the ones that don't work as well as others. I have a S&W, Kimber, and I just ordered a Nighthawk T3.

    Well, I recently picked up a loaded Rock island thinking it would be a decent project gun. I have been really surprised to see that to performs really well!

    It's not enough to make me want to change my stand on Springfield. I still believe that they are the best I've had the pleasure to own but I'll not just overlook the RIA like U wold have a couple years ago.

    If you’re looking for the $500 to $700 range: Springfield
    If you’re looking for the $700 to $1200 range: Kimber
    If you’re looking for $1200 to well I guess I’m single again range: Wilson Combat

    I personaly am a Kimber guy... I have never shot one that wasnt awesome. I really like both of mine.

    I was such a Colt fan for so long. Not that I'm anti colt now, I picked up a Kimber custom II a few weeks ago and I just really like it. I'm not opposed to owning another colt somewhere down the road. but I'm enjoying this kimber.

    Those para's are damn good pistols. You'll really like getting that one dirty

    I voted other, because even though I've got a Kimber Classic series 1 that is now perfectly reliable, it took about 2 years, lots of ammo, some Wilson parts, and lots of cussing to get that way. It always has been very accurate I must say.

    I fully intend to acquire a Les Baer.

    Kimber

    I have always shot mispec style 1911's and loved them. They are not tack drivers, but they are reliable and more than adequate for self defense shooting. But now I have encountered the Kimber, and I am impressed. I am considering selling a couple of guns I do not use, so I can purchase the Kimber without feeling the damage. Who knows? I just might!

    I voted Kimber, the one I have has not had the first problem and I like the way it looks. But the next time at the range, it may be nothing but problems, hope not.

    Springfield for utility.
    SVI for show.
    Tussey custom for fit.
    STI for go.

    Ultimately, I'd rather have a gunsmith build a frankenstein'd 1911 for me.

    My Les Baer was a nice start and then went to John Harrison for some personal touches. My Dan Wesson Valor is the best for the money. All forged frame and slide and tool steel trigger group, like the Baer.

    Baer/Harrison











    Valor

    Actually it's the only brand I've had the plesure to shoot so far so I don't have any depth to my opinion.
    But the one I got sure is nice and it shoots good tooo
