I am in the market for a 1911 style handgun and am flip/floping between the GSR and a Kimber.
I am shying away from the Kimber due to issues I am hearing about their external extractors, however the GSR has an ext. extractor as well, does anyone have any experience with either ?
Also does the GSR accept standard 1911 grips? (I am looking at adding lasergrips to whichever I end up going with :)
Any help is apreciated,
I bought the GSR a little over a year ago. I was flip flopping back and forth between the Kimber TLE II and the GSR also. Very happy with my decision. I have a very early production (serial #2300). Out of the box it had a problem extracting spent cases. Sent it to Sig, had it back in two weeks (they paid for all shipping) and since then I have fired about 1200 rounds. No failures whatsoever. I've never fired a Kimber but I have no need for one now.
