I have to agree with the others, the SW1911 is an excellent 1911. I have owned a Colt, a Springfield and a Kimber. I own two SW1911s and no longer have the Colt, Springfield or Kimber. I think that speaks for itself when comparing the SW1911 with other 1911s. I am not a person that gets out to the range on a regular bases :bawling: and I still shoot excellent groups with SW1911 . I do not think you will go wrong with the SW1911.
