Which 1911?

1944 Views 22 Replies 19 Participants Last post by  Maudite
I am looking to buy a new 1911 in 9mm. Narrowed my choices down to a Springfield loaded or a kimber custom 11. Would like to hear any pros and cons on these 2 from anyone with either. Thanks for your help guys.

I have a Springfield 1911 9mm. Works every time, is gentle to shoot, and is an awesome piece of equipment.
Looks like this one.

I also have mil-spec, tactical, and custom 1911s in 45ACP.
They renge from RIA, to Thompson, to Sig Sauer.
The Sig is pretty too.

But there isn't a Kimber in the pile.
I understand Kimbers are good guns, and lots of folks like them, but I also understand there are proprietary parts in there.
Couldn't tell you which ones.
If someone knows, I'd be interested.
I like to stay away from as many proprietary parts as possible, but you can't always do that.
When it comes to 1911s, more mil-spec is better.
