What part of their test results do you have hard evidence to dispute? What links and hard evidence do you have that show as a percentage of pistols produced that Wilson or Baer have fewer issues than the listed S&Ws and Springers? We'll leave Kimber out of it because after all nobody expects much out of them anymore. Both Wilson and Baer make seriously fine weapons but both S&W and Springfield make fine pistols that more than hold their own. Last I heard there were still a few top competitors making their living with S&Ws.Gunblast? The ******* know nothings that said Smith & Wesson, Kimber, etc could compete against Baer, RRA and Wilson? Gettin' off topic....
And what part of the test results do you have hard evidence to dispute? Are you saying that they lied when the authors stated that they got 1-1/4" groups out of a production S&W? Or 1-3/8 out of a RRA Limited Match?:biglaugh: Not the S&W 1911 PC, the regular production gun. Vs a Premier II, RRA Hardball and CQB.
Which one fits your hand (and pocket book) best? That's the one to get.I have finally narrowed down my decision on buying my first 1911 and would like your opinion on the following choices please.
1. Springfield Trophy Match
2. Smith+Wesson DK (Doug Koenig) cheaper priced model
3. Dan Wesson Pointman 7
Thanks for your imput.
+2 on Colts. The others offer a bunch of add-ons that I don't even want for free. Go with a Colt Gold Cup and never look back.....it's the cadillac of production 1911's for 1k or under. Next would be the series 70 or XSE model depending on what I was looking to do with it and spend.+1 on the Colt for your first 1911. Everyone after that you should look closely at what Springfield has to offer and trust me, there will be many more.:rock:
