I know this isnt a hunting questions per se, but you guys are all pretty smart about firearms in general so I thought I would take advantage of it and see what you all think.
I am in the market to purchase a 1911 and I have been looking and without surprise I have narrowed it down to the big three in my eyes: Colt, Springfield, and Kimber. I am in the price range of about 700-1,000 and want the best bang for my buck. If a thousand dollar gun is worth it I will do it, but if I can get the same quality out of a gun that is 800 dollars I would rather do that. I guess my question is, do you guys own any of these particular 1911's and if you do, what is your experience with them and do have any suggestions. I know I am being a little vague but anything regarding 1911's in general would help me choose, and if you have specific suggestions as far as a specific gun I would really appreciate it.
Ive had great luck with getting responses from you guys in the past, so thank you in advance.
