This true, but is definitely debatable to no conclusive end.. There are many owners very happy with their 'copy's' and feel they got more bang for their buck..
Taurus and Ruger come to mind.
Then their are those of us with Kimbers that haven't suffered the CS and other reported issues that trust and swear by them..
There are lots of great 1911's from lots of manufactures.. I personally believe to limit oneself on others opinions, one time/one gun/product experience is short sited..

For example I bought a brand new Ruger P345 and had several light strikes with different types of ammo, then after shooting some +P rounds that the manual said was ok, the pistol felt lose like it was going to come apart in my hand.. I did sell the gun and informed my buddy before buying it.. If based my opinion on Rugers based on this exp and a few other experiences with friends Rugers(which I didn't care for) would be ignorant..
Point is the Colt design is long lasting and classic but there are MANY 1911's that preform as well or better and just as many that look better IMO.. Colt is a cult figure because of the govt models.. Had Springfield made the govt issued guns and or designed the the original this would be a completely different discussion.. Personally a Wilson Combat or other high grade 1911 is higher on my list then a Colt, save for a govt issued gun..

I've got no issue with Colt, but there are equal and better 1911's.. Closed minded and short sited comes to mind.. Others didn't invent the wheel, only made it roll better.

Gee! Here we go again. Why I bought a copy of a Colt 1911. It is your money and your choice. Mr. Colts company supplied hand guns from the Texas War until today. Mr. Kimber supplied handguns from ? Until ?

I've owned a few 1911s kimbers, a few sigs, and others. I'm telling ya all, STI.
Ever see a STI for sale or trade in a local gun trading site or favorite gun forum? Ill bet no. Even their entry level Spartan at 599.00 though slide and frame are made in the Philippines they are sent back to Texas to hand fitted and tuned there by the people who do thief high end stuff. Using their patented trigger that goes on their most expensive pieces.
STI IMO is at the top of the 1911 world or at the least shoulder to shoulder with your best choice
