Hey everyone, just came across this forum and thought I'd sign up to get your input. I'm on the market for a new 1911. I have a Colt lightweight officer and have had Sigs in the past. I have been very happy with both brands. I have also had friends that swear by Kimber's though.
My question is, of all the models of those brands what do you think is the best as far as accuracy and reliability goes? I understand it is going to be completely opinionated, but I welcome anyone's thought.
I have had 2 Kimbers, a Tac II Pro and a Custom TRl w/ the rail. I don't even remember what the 5" was even called, lol. Anyway I don't own a 1911 anymore. The Custom had feeding issues. Magazine? Maybe, who knows. I didn't want to mess w/ it. Glocks now M&Ps for me.
So if we are basing this off "originality" then why wouldn't I just get a Browning seeing how he designed the original 1911 or go with the high power as it being his last? I know Colt's are good and every one likes them because they're an old company that has contributed more than their fare share to the fire arm community.....But, with modern technologies and advancements in fire arms I would like to go off more than the fact it was in two wars.
I have my grandfathers colt military issue. It shoots better than some of my newer 1911's. I have mot found anything it would not feed, with only a feed ramp polishing. I have seem it function when kimbers, and sig wouldn't with the exact same ammo. Look for canebrake's reply he can help as well as several others just give em a little time.
