1911s are like Corvettes, both original American iron. A '63 Stingray is probably the coolest 'Vette ever built, however, an '08 will blow the doors off of it in terms of reliability and performance.

A WWII issue M1911A1 would be one of the coolest guns to own, however a brand new Kimber or Para will blow the doors off of the old school Colt.

If I had an ISSUE WORLD WAR ONE 1911, would I trust it? You betcha! I would trust it to be sold in a heartbeat- and the money would by me 3 new Colt 1911's !!! Have you guys checked prices on ORIGINAL MILITARY issue 45s from WW I and WW II ? If I had an original Ford Model T, probably would not use it to run to the grocery store. Could it do it? yes, but......

$1000 for a reparked 1913 dated Colt, $1200 for a 1943 Remington Rand, both at a local gun show two weeks ago. I've seen online dealers with higher prices. I would want one for the history as well as personal use. Wouldn't think of selling one if I had one.

My first XDm was a .40, 1500 never a problem with this weapon. easy break down for cleaning. Gave that one to my youngest so (42) after getting a .40 XDm compact, and 2 days ago I finally got my XDm .45. So I guess you can say I am very happy with my Sprinfields. When you get one shoothe hell outt and keep it clean.
