After a lot of research and way too much time on these forums I decided to get a 1911 .45. Here's what ended up being my choice. Off to the range first thing in the morning
Crimson Custom Carry II
Well...made it to the range this morning, man does thing shoot sweet. The aluminum trigger felt a little strange at first but it quickly got accustomed to it. I must say the Crimson Trace laser is like cheating . After a quick adjustment to line up the laser to the sights @ 50', it was just point and shoot. I'm a novice shooter at best, and as long as I just sqeezed the trigger and didn't have any jerking it was dead center. Even the missed shots were only 3-4" from center, which I think is pretty good.
Shooting back to back against my Sigma 40VE, I was ready to just throw that thing in the trash on the way out. I think the Sigma may be headed for a trade-in.
Just how do you go about adjusting in the sighting on that model? I'm really close to buying a Kimber, just not sure which 5" barrel model I want. That model really caught my eye. Was looking at that 9mm Custom model too. Knowing that ammo is so much cheaper at the range/store for 9's than .45's.
Congrats, my Kimber is the best shooting gun I own.
I just bought one and hope to pick it up soon when I get home from deployment.
Sorry for being so long responding to your question, I guess I overlooked it.
I have a Kimber Pro CDP II with the Crimson Trace Laser sites too - wow what a great gun.
I'd encourage anyone that wants a 1911 .45 to look long and hard at the Kimber - the laser site is good for most guns.
Very nice looking gun!! Congrats!! Going next week to decide which Kimber to buy me!
