Dang if I know which has the best warranty, but my Springfield Armory 1911a1 bought in the 80s and fired tens of thousands of times has never needed any work.

RIA, Metro Arms, STI, SA, Colt all have a life time warranty. Kimber has a paltry 1 yr warranty.

If you are primarily intrested in a warranty you need to buy a Hi-Point. Lifetime, transferrable warranty and a reputation for excellent customer service.

Not the world's best gun, but a great warranty...........

Buy the type of firearm you want, buy it from a decent gun maker, don't obsess over the warranty.

I had to send in my sig stx and they paid for everything without question. I was on the phone for 3 mins and they emailed me a shipping label and it was off. All of their guns minus the mosqito have lifetime warranties (even the 1911-22). Although a slid warranty is nice, don't hesitate to buy a used gun without one... Their are many gunsmiths who can easily fix a 1911 if anything is to go wrong.

SIG has a lifetime warranty to the original owner. And I am happy I bought my SIG 1911 if I might add.

I considered a Kimber as well but I heard the "II" models are spotty in terms of QC and at the end of the day they do only have a one year warranty. I can't go for that, and firearm I own should have a lifetime warranty and they all do (either beretta or SIG). I bought a SIG Nitron in a tacpac with 3 mags and a holster, and paid about $750. I couldn't be happier. Great pistol, quality magazines and a lifetime warranty.
