I couldn't be happier. Great pistol, quality magazines and a lifetime warranty.
Their warrenty is voided if you even take the grips off.

True it's a 1911 anyways so it's not like it's going to beak very easily.

True. Given that, why not stand behind your product even further. I don't know I do t think it would be a deal breaker for me, but when I knew the gun I was buying HAD a lifetime warranty it was a deal sealer for me.
If you use your firearms there's a chance that something can go wrong so it's good to know that the manufacturer will always stand behind it within reason.

Warranty Coverage
Terms of Warranty & Service Agreement
This limited warranty has been drafted in compliance with the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Federal Trade Commission Improvement act, which is effective for goods manufactured on or after December 31, 1995.

Kimber firearms are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of the original retail purchase as new merchandise. Kimber agrees to correct, by repair or replacement with a new or comparable model, a qualifying Kimber product without charge, if returned with a copy of a dated bill of sale. Kimber assumes no responsibility for product malfunction, physical injury or property damage resulting in whole or in part from criminal use, or negligent, improper or careless handling, unauthorized modifications, use of defective, improper or hand-loaded ammunition, abuse, neglect or any other influences beyond Kimber’s control.

This warranty does not apply to the normal wear of any parts or surface finish, including metal, wood, plastic, rubber or other materials. This warranty does not cover repairs related to unreasonable use, corrosion, damage, barrels damaged by an obstructed bore. It also does not apply to loss or damage suffered during return shipment.

Kimber reserves the right to inspect the product before making replacements or repairs covered by this warranty.

Under no circumstances shall Kimber be held liable for incidental or consequential damages with respect to economic loss, injury or property damage resulting from the breach of either the express or implied warranty. This limitation does not apply to states that disallow the exclusion of consequential or incidental damages.

This warranty grants specific legal rights to the original retail purchaser only. Other rights may apply and vary from state to state. The terms of this warranty may only be changed in writing by an officer of Kimber Mfg., Inc. The Kimber factory at 1 Lawton Street, Yonkers, NY 10705 is the only authorized repair location.

I can't speak for the warranty on Sig or Kimber, but if you're looking for a top quality 1911 with outstanding customer service and a lifetime warranty you should really check out STI. The following is part of STI's answer to a warranty question in the FAQ section of their website:

"We stand behind our products and if you EVER have a problem with an STI, we are going to make sure to take good care of you! The STI warranty covers the product- not the original purchaser so even if you purchase it used, we will still warranty our work."

As the happy owner of a number of their pistols I have always been very impressed with their products and their people.

They cover used guns, that's nice.
