it has to be made in germany if you want the best quality. thats why they cost more but they still sell the same amount as the cowboy made ones
I just don't understand why Springfield is getting the votes it is.
Guess that is because this is a forum and not a real scientific poll.
Springfield sold 5,679 45s in 2006
Kimber sold 57,851 45s in 2006
ATF data is not in for 2007 YET
Anyone got anything to say about a sig?? My local shop has one and I am thinking of jumping on it. I think they are asking 800 for it and it is stainless that is all I know I will find out more details maybe tommorrow.
I went and looked at the gun again... It is a Sig revolution Compact c3 in duo tone with two mags any advice or recomendations??
#1. Dan Wesson for fit and finish. A dream to carry and shoot.
#2. Springfield, just excellent fair priced 1911's
1 Para and 1 Taurus are my choices so far.

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 like colt
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.
ok, so i know this is a movie...yea. well at one point in the movie Wanted Morgan Freeman refers to the pistol that the character Wesley Gibson is holding as a "Imanishi 17" ? so never hearing the brand i tried looking it up...nothing has anyone ever heard of this before? i mean i understand this is a movie but why the made up name? i havent even been able to locate a gun that looks similar to this either. any answers anyone?
Les Baer properly broken in. Oooh la la
1 Llama It was a test type thing and it was a total waste of money...
1 Les Baer
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 like the Springfield
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.
Springfield definetly the best metal being built currently
I have both Springfield and Kimber. I use the Spring for targets and my Kimber Tactical Ultra II for carry - both quality handguns -
My Kimber Ultra Carry II is my number one carry pistol.
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.
