Get the Pony. I had a Colt National Match Gold Cup and unfortunately had to sell it due to money issues. The Colt will hold its resale value way longer

I have a Custom Carry and a Raptor by Kimber. I have had ZERO issues with either. Looking at buying a third one in December as a present to myself for Christmas. I am certain it will be a Kimber.

Buy colt! Kimberly gets predominately bad reviews. Colts customer service is excellent

I would go with the Kimber TLE over the Colt. Colt has had some QC issues.

I've owned my Warrior for 6 months and put well over 1000 rounds through it, and so far no hiccups.
