i was planning on buying a custom Kimber, spending around $1200+.
but after reading reviews and getting input from other 1911 owners, im considering an SA Mil Spec. now that ive thought it over, i figured that because id mainly be using it for home defense and casual shooting at the range and not competition, i would be spending more than i need/want to going with a Kimber Eclipse. II like i was planning.
it seems that the Mil Spec is very reliable and pretty accurate (within 4 inch groupings at 25 yards is what im looking for). and to be honest, im actually drawn to the rugged look of the "no-frills" 1911.
and lastly, i figured with the money id be saving by going the Mil Spec route id be able to put that towards another shotty... like a Remington 870 and have some money left over for a few accessories to add on
anyone own or use a SA Mil Spec? any "war stories", good or bad, would be appreciated.
