Two good choices there. I'm not sure there's a clear-cut favorite.

I had an excellent Springfield in .45, and replaced it with a very good .45 Kimber 1911. The Springfield's slide eventually cracked for the next owner, and the Kimber has now digested tens of thousands of rounds. I guess I've got a slight preference for the Kimber, but not by much.

I think Springfield would have replaced that cracked slide if the owner had asked, and at any rate it was 15+ years ago so likely has no bearing on what they're producing now. I remember it as a very good, accurate pistol. The Springfields I've shot since have also been good.

Not much help am I? I like them both!
