Hi folks, glad to finally find this forum.
I've decided to purchase a 1911, but aparently the choice is not as simple as I thought it would be. My criteria is:
1. must be $1,000 or less (less is good)
2. full size
3. I would expect ultra reliability in a defensive situation, accuracy is second but also important
4. no polymer!!!!
5. good to go out of the box
6. nice trigger
I have heard horror stories about Kimber's customer service, and strange reports of Springfield's slides breaking in half. I am leaning toward the Kimber Custom Stainless. Any suggestions are appreciated.
