Let's see. Mine, mine, mine, mine, and uh, yeah, mine. I love all 5 of them and think they are all great.

What's the ranking criteria? Are we talking for the dollar? Best production guns? Best custom guns? Most expensive? Most historic?

The Stainless Steel Springfield 1911A1 also shoots well.

You are asking for a pissing match here. Everyone's opinion is different. But I'll play and give you my top 5:

Colt
Colt
Springfield
Colt
Sig

Did I mention Colt ? Nothing else is built like a nice Colt.
