Of those 3 I would go Springfield Armory,there quality improved years ago and make a good piece.
I'm not a Kimber fan,their warranty is short and QC has been spotty for a long time.I do have to say problems are minor now compared to years ago,they're normally simple fixes.
The Ruger I don't know,heard mostly good on them.
Go to 1911Forum.com and go to the manufacturer's section,you can find out just about anything you want to know about a brand.Just remember everyone and their brother are making them now,and there's going to be a lemon from everyone at some point,some just have more than others.
I still prefer Colt and have 3 ranging from 1918 to the mid 80s.I had a real early SA (Springfield) that was a good gun,but got a later one that was an out of spec nightmare.Still have that one I'll throw a 22 upper on one day.After that one they tightened up on quality,and I'd buy a newer one if I were in the market for one.
Enjoy the hunt.
