I currently have 2 Kimbers. However, I regret selling my 2 Colts. I have learned the hard way never sell a gun, especially a 1911. I will always carry a Kimber, but there is just something about a Colt.

I had a Springfield Armory, a Colt 1991 stainless and aColt Commander stainless. I don't miss them. I will never sell my Kimber. I have a S&W and Sig 1911 on the shopping list......

A Springfield, two Para-Ordnance high caps, a Remington-Rand, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Three SA's for me, two full size and one ultra compact...I'm looking toward another full size in the near future, I'm thinking along the lines of a black stainless or maybe an operator...

Other: self manufactured with parts from the internet.

Colt and SA. Favorite by far is the Springfield Armory. The Commander is nice but has nasty sharp edges.

30 yrs ago it was just COLT!

Well, I currently have 4 of the 5 in your poll. Would have bought a GSR, but the one I looked at was way too poorly put together for a $950 gun, so I bought a Kimber Team Match II that day, instead.

As far as custom 1911's, I have a couple of those, too. None are stock items from the major builders; all are custom to my specs from top local guys.

Colt, Kimber, & Dan Wesson

Uhhh.... Where's the NORINCO choice? The most reliable 1911 of recent times.

Colt 1911 made in 1918 or 1917 not sure. A ORM 1991 Gov, and a NRM 1991 Commander.

And a Python that was my dad's and a 1908 in .380

too big to carry all the time.

every round i shot through it was a round i could have been putting through my g23, which i DO carry every day. practice makes permanent.

they're just "clunky"

if i get another .45 it'll be a single stack, which is ironic because i paid a lot for my hicap mags during the ban.

(2) Springfields (1) Kimber.................I see another Kimber in the near future.......and maybe a Para LTC

Colt, only because I got one HELL of a deal on a 1943-manufactured ex-GI 1911a1

Otherwise I probably would have just saved up and either a) built one myself or b) bought a kimber
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 4:12:22 AM EST
two springfields, milspec & lt.wt. loaded {carry gun} nm # milspec shoots better than any colt i have owned. been into 1911's since 1976.
