Postby a10acfan1 » Thu Oct 02, 2008 8:42 pm

I'm in the market for a 1911 pistol. There are a lot of good brands out there. Looking at a Kimber CDP II with 4" barrel. What do ya'll have and good or bad experiences and advice. Thanks in advance.

I've got a Springfield XD-40. Only auto I own, so I can't compare to others. I will say that it is fun to shoot !

Kimber is an excellent choice. I am a die hard GLOCK shooter though, but as for 1911 style, the kimber is great. Before buying the Kimber though, you need to look at the STI's built in Texas. They are super nice and cheaper. The new S&W style 1911 is nice as well. Also the Rob Latham Model is tricked a bit, but cost is high. "get what you pay for"

I got an old plain jane Springfield. I bought it from a buddy about 10 years ago. I can load it with shotshells, ball, hollow point, and five other types of ammo in any order. Then it will shoot them as fast as I can pull the trigger. I have worn it on my hip all day while bush hogging or haying and it shoots fine. Doesn't seem to matter what I do it keeps on ticking. And it is very accurate. It ain't for sale, but if I was buying a 1911 it is the only one I would buy. Of course this one I own may have prejudiced me just a little bit.
