Sig all the way. I've known 4 people with Kimbers and they all including my own had jamming problems.

As far as the Springer or Kimber, depends what model.
What's this you speak of, Cane? Other than the external extractor and different slide design, what other parts on a Sig 1911 aren't interchangeable?

I'm showing my age. The only experience was with a friend who owned a first Gen GSR that was a bag full of problems. His LGS kept telling him he had to ship the gun back to Sig because none of the parts they had would work in his GSR.

He got tired of Sig having his gun more than him and traded it in for a Colt 1911. This second hand experience clouded my opinion of the mark and I never followed through with the real answer.

Sorry guys, I spoke with authority on a subject I had no hard facts. I have since found out that with the exception of the external extractor, the Sig uses the same parts as many other 1911s.

Thank you Olympus for pointing out this mistake. I will do research on any future statements I make when I don't have the hard facts to back the statement!

I just wanted to make sure I wasn't misinformed either. Sig also makes a "Traditional" model as of 2011 that has the normal slide design and internal extractor.
