Not all come with a threaded barrel. My Scorpion carry 1911 is flawless. Everything about it says quality, the Kimber is also a great 1911 but I would go with the SIG. Just remember SIG 1911s dont fit standard 1911 holsters
I was referring to the full size models as I believe that is what the OP was considering. And the Sigs may not fit a hard plastic or kydex holster, but they will fit just fine in leather or nylon.
I have both. Had an issue with the Sig. I sent it on a Thursday from Florida to NH. I had it the following Tuesday morning. Four days total, door to door. Outstanding pistol. The Fastback Carry is the most accurate pistol that I own. I have a lot of them I love this gun!
I have a Kimber and love it. The Kimber has a longer/more extended thumb safety which is nice for quick positive safety disengagement many times at the range. IMO an external extractor is not true 1911 design but then again I guess there are quite a few things on both guns that aren't true to their roots. Both companies IMO are great as I have pistols in both brands and have never had any problems.

picture of the internal extractor used on most 1911's. as far as i know, there are no real advantages or disadvantages of one over the other. now many prefer the internal extractor simply from a cosmetic standpoint, because that's what 1911's have had from the beginning. i prefer the looks of the internal, and that's my reason, purely cosmetic and in keeping the more traditional look of a 1911.
I've had no luck with Kimbers over the years. Had two and they where not near worth the troubles I had. I've shot a couple friends that where pretty good but I wont spend money on another one. I'll stick to about everything else. I've yet to own or even see a bad Sig.
