I like Kimber for the precision and the trigger. It is the most accurate 1911 I have had. I have an Eclipse Pro II and I really like it. Whether or not you want to purchase a Kimber could depend upon how much you desire to have a very high quality 1991, akin to one of the custom made Wilsons or Baers. Kimber seems to approach the quality of those brands.
All 1911's I've had were reliable and shot well. The ones we had in the service shot whether they were muddy, wet, cold or hot. At self defense ranges they all work well. So it's really all a matter of desire.
I currently have a Springfield that is about ten years old, and the Kimber which is new. I like them both. But I love "driving tacks" with the Kimber; just for shooting fun. The Kimber would also be my choice for a pistol to carry in any emergency. I do not carry it concealed though.
hope this helps some. Good luck with your choice and shooting!
He lowered his price to $550.00 + a 12ga I have nothing in. Have to go for it. Also found out from Kimber this is from the custom shop before they made it a production item, & just stamped the name on it + he just had a new set of 24/7 tritium installed plus 6 shooting star mags. Just wish it had a rail. May add a rail to it. Brownells sells one for $50.00 + whatever acraglas runs these days. I'm getting everything I can before the election.
Only reason I'm selling my enforcer is wife & I have agreement, if one comes in something has to go out. Least attached to the .30 cal. pistol.
Changed my mind after test firing jammed every round of hollow point regardless of brand. It would take ball and jam one out of 8. Replaced with a brand new mag off the shelf at the range still jammed. I think I'll keep my 4506 it eats anything it's not a tackdriver but 3 or 4k rounds its never FTF or FTE.
After looking on gunbroker & several other auction sites it seems a new in the box doesn't go for more than $8 or 900. With MIM parts and some of the problems that seem to plague this pistol = no hollow points no get.
