Well, I keep finding myself looking at 1911's and I've started to somewhat seriously look at getting one. From what I've been reading and holding (not shooting) one, I'm sold on the "CCO" format. The 4" ish slide with an offficer's frame. I don't want to go down to a 3" barrel. This will be for CC. Based on what I "think" I can afford, I've narrowed my search down to a
1. Kimber Compact
2. Sig Sauer Compact.
3. Smith & Wesson 1911 ES
So, any opinions and all opinions are welcomed. Any others I should look at? Advantages/Disadvantages of an External Extractor? Does it matter? I've never owned a 1911 before. I've only shot a full-size one. thanks.
