I can assure you my Kimber Classic is not a 'Mantle Warrior' and the quality and accuracy of my particular Kimber pistol will stack up well with anything in it's price range. I think these types of generalizations are at best biased and since the OP did his research and picked Kimber as his choice, trying to push him towards a different choice of 1911 isn't offering him any help in making the decision on the configurations as he was asking for.

To each his own. I agree kimber makes beautiful 1911's. The fact that kimbers have such a lengthy break in period and require a spring change at the 1000-1500 mark is ludacris. By the time you finish the break in period, its time to change the spring. Just for the record I own 3 kimber coverts. 1 in each size. I feel there are better guns out there for the money. Thats all.
