My latest and most unusual Colt Government Model, also one of the coolest pistols out of Hartford recently.

No matter who you buy from, make sure they have a good warranty. 1911 frequently need some fine tuning.

Sounds like the ATI Titan FX45 I almost bought. After reading about all the trouble people have with them, I decided against it. Now I'm looking for a quality .45 compact......

Don't get me wrong, that Kimber is my favorite gun now. I have 2 Springfield EMP and a a full size Kimber that worked perfect from the start. Once adjusted properly they are fantastic.

I just bought one at a pretty good price. Can you fill me in on some of these problems?

Looks like it would have a heft trigger, how's the pull

Just Google ATI TITAN and you'll find plenty. Sounds like they can run o.k., but most guys end up sticking a couple hundred bucks in them and a trip or two to the gunsmith, so I figured I might as well spend the money upfront on a Springer or a Colt. Kimber is in the running too, but the 1 year warranty is a minus.

I doubt you'll need more than a year warranty on a Kimber but when you look at the price of Springfield and especially Sig, it's hard to pass those up.
