Hey all, I have been looking hard for a new and first 1911. I have looked at Kimber, Springfield Loaded, Dan Wesson, Sig Sauer, also STI. All are in my price range, kimber being a bit more than I like. I have been searching and trying to find out which of them is the better. I know Kimber had a lot of problems with the external extractor, but is now better. Basically just curious as to which you all like better? I plan to use it for carry, so reliability is a must. Thank you all for your help and comments.
