Sure they both did the same thing; they put holes in things, but how about accuracy and reliability?
Lonewolf, I'm not sure how you can say SIG 1911's are overpriced when most of their 1911's are at or under 1k, which is actually less than the average price of a Kimber. Anyone who thinks that SIG's 1911's are somehow inferior to other "mass produced, higher end" pistols has clearly not owned a SIG for any length of time. I urge anyone to give SIG a look, and I guarantee that the SIGs will run with any comparably priced gun.
I hope I didn't come off as cranky, but.... I am! Headed to the dentist and I'm not really in the mood for that!
I always respect other people's opinions as I hope others would allow me the same consideration. Thanks.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
$720 out the door, brand new from a Kimber Master dealer plus another $20ish for the grips. $1100 to $1200 is about average price on a Sig 1911 around here, but you can still pick up base Custom IIs and Compact IIs for about $700.
