I was a bit harsh on my previous response but I do feel that way anyway. Many "purists" dump on guns like SIG and Kimber for having extraneous parts that did not exist in the original design. As far as I'm concerned JMB was a great and prolific inventor that was always looking for new designs. He would have been shocked if he woke up today and found out that no one was tinkering with his design.
In any case I stand by my previous statement, Kimber, SIG and others like S&W make great accurate and reliable 1911 style guns that suffer only from 1911 snobbery...
