As I have been making my way around the forum...I noticed a few comments about poor quality coming from Kimber. I own two Kimbers and both have operated flawlessly for me. I am considering getting a commander length .45 and would like to hear from the community...pros and cons and what manufacturer makes the best "value" in a 4" .45 auto, preferably not stainless steel? A value buy would be a quality firearm, accurate and reliable, with a good warranty, with night sights for a median price or less. The gun would be a range gun, not SD....prior to reading the comments, Kimber would be a logical choice, but there has been some sharp criticisms of Kimber so I am rethinking...also, another brand might be in order anyways just to try something new.
