Ive been in the market for a 1911, I was fixed on the colt xse 80s series but then I seen the kimber custom 2. I like both and money is not an option, which pistol is made better. I will post pics of both

I don't have any experience with that colt but i've had a kimber custom tactical II for several years now and i love it, i can't imagine a better 1911 IMO

I have a Kimber that has been flawless since day one, I like it & will probably own another one some day, but I vote for the Colt. May cost a little more, but a lifetime warranty vs 1 year & a better customer service reputation.

I'd choose the Colt but if money isnt an option........
Nighthawk
Les Baer
Wilson Combat supergrade
Dan Wesson
Why limit your choices, live out my fantasy

Colt is made better hands down...take it to the bank. Buy yourself a Colt Combat Elite and if money really isn't an issue get a Colt Special Combat Government.

Get a Colt over the Kimber please. As was said 1 yr. warranty vs. lifetime. Colt also has a custom shop and Kimber doesn't. If money is no object then PLEASE look at Ed Brown or Les Baer. WAY better than either of them. Love Colts but they do not compare to EB or LB.

This is a 5X8 sheet of paper. Four rounds (WWB from Wally World), fired from 40 feet, off rest, made that hole on top.

Pistol? Bone stock Colt Combat Elite purchased for $800.

Colt, hands down.

Besides, Kimber is a girl's name. (If you have a problem in the one year warranty, and have changed something as simple as the grips, they void the warranty.)
