    Hello All,

    I am new to this forum, so I wanted to say hello!

    I understand that everyone as a personal favorite 1911. I am sure that each one has it's own great features. I do need your assistance, If someone could tell me what is the difference is between the Gold match VS the Super Match 2. They both have the same features, but the SM 2 is almost a grand more? Why? Because it comes out of the custom shop? Got to shoot the SM2 and fell in love. I have never been able to group under .75 at 20 yards! I did with the Super Match. I shot it again, thinking that it was a fluke. Nope did the same thing! Shot many other 1911 and have never shot that type of grouping.

    Thanks

    I'm not postive, but if the SM2 comes out of the custom shop, I imagine it had some hand fitting done which increases the price & accuracy. Someone should be along that can tell you for sure.

    Yes, The Super Match does come from the Custom Shop. It is the finest pistol they make. It is the only one that they give an accuracy guarantee on.
    "Each one is guaranteed to have fired a 5-shot, 25-yard group measuring one inch or less center-to-center." "The Super Match II is produced in limited numbers by the Kimber Custom Shop. " From the Kimber website

    The only other differences I can see, is the Super match has stainless steel slide and frame, and better coatings on them.
    The Gold match is carbon steel that is blued.
