Default Can't Decide

Greetings from Minn -15 degrees. I have been thinking of 1911s lately (mostly range work) and getting the fever, I have never owned one however have shot some several years ago, can't remember the brands. Currently shooting a p229 40, p226 9mm and a G21sf. I think it's time I jumped up a notch but can't decide on a kimber gold match II or a TRP Trophy match, I have held them, however no one around here lets you test drive before you buy. Any one have any knowledge with these or any others in the price range.
Thanks for any input,,,,,,,,Randy

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

What kind of 1911 do you want?

The more refined 1911s are the Kimbers. The more "down and dirty" 1911s are the Rock Island Armorys.

What is your price cap?

You could always go with Nighthawks. They are the cream of the crop in the 1911 circles.

This is the model 1911 I have:



The only difference is I have a Hogue grip in place of the wood. Very solid 1911 pistol in my opinion. It's heavier than the Kimbers because of heavier materials used in the construction of the frame.

Average price for this 1911 is around 400-470 dollars. These make good "utility" 1911s I think.

Well if she kicks you out, come on down to the Gunshine State.

82 today and I caught a bass in my back yard lake.

Good luck with your search.
