depends on your budget. many great choices in 45 depending on how much you want to spend. RIA and American Classic if you want a decent 1911 without spending an arm or a leg. also check out Ruger and Remington or Springfield Armory. also check out the original, Colt.

just read some of Cane's stickies on choosing your first 1911. lots of good information for someone new to the 1911 platform. read it and reread it again.

for some reason i always forget about STI. but they also are a good option for a 1911.

Enjoy your new Kimber, I've been very pleased with my Raptor. I think its all about which pistol makes you get the best groupings on the target. There's so many good ones out there, just find the one that suits YOU best and not what others think you should have in your holster.

most all 1911's teardown pretty much the same. some do have a different guiderod that can be a little more difficult than the traditional one peice guiderod. but all in all, they are about the same as far as difficulty.

Don't worry about it. I was wondering how much of a pain it would be to disassemble. It turned out to be no big deal.

Man that's a nice kimber! Glad you like it... Sorry that X5 has a trust fund and daddy paid for his custom gun... I have a rock island GI and I love it. And if your kimber runs well and you got help your friend then more power to you!

But I hope x5 drops his crapspian crustom in a DEEP lake... Uppity a$$hole.

He probably has to bench rest to get the groups I do left handed with my good eye closed ;p

Rock island with a good shooter > custom and an ******* with more money than experience

For me hands down Springer makes the best 1911's.
