I can't decide on a 1911 and need help?
I'm stuck and need some suggestions so I thought I would turn to my friends here for help. I am looking for a compact 1911 for conceal carry and I am stuck between 2 types. I am looking at the Colt-New agent or defender. Or the Kimberultra cdp II. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Ed

Get your hands on all three of 'em and then decide.

my opinion either of the colts excellent. ive got a new agent and love it. i like the trench sights but if you want the standard sights get the defender. colt products are head and shoulders above kimber.

Pick a Colt and skip a Kimber....

Colt (or check out the Springer models).

Springer! Although, someone here has said, and is even quoted as saying, that basically, one is as good as another. Should be an easy choice.

I vote Kimber.

I'm happy with my Kimber Compact.

Any of the "name brand" 1911s will serve you well and we all have our favorites. The bottom line is choose one and be happy as it will likely not be the last you acquire...
