If you are looking for a superbly fit and finished 1911, with inherent accuracy and reliability right out of the box, AND, with a minimum of cast and MIM parts, than Springfield Armory is for you. Forget Colt...it's a has been.
I don't really see why everyone worries so much about MIM parts. I have heard that a lot of the manufacturers MIM parts are very strong. I know my Kimber has a few MIM parts but that doesn't not stop me from trusting it 100%
