I'm sure this has been beaten to death, but I just gotta get a new consensus on the subject.
Currently, I'm carrying a series 70 Gold Cup that was completely reworked by the late Austin Behlert. The pistol is one heck of a tack driver and will handle everything I can feed it including emptys.
Unfortunately, I'm starting to get really tired carrying around something this big and heavy. At first (many years ago, when it was "size matters") I enjoyed the discomfort. Well, I've gotten past that and would like something smaller (4" barrel) and shorter butt. I figure that selling my GC would get me almost or all the dollars to purchase either a Wilson or Kimber.
I'm looking for is recommendations from you guys (and girls) as to which is the better of the two. Considering, I have owned cars costing less than either of the two, I assume that their both good production or semi-custom .45's.
I guess it would be unfair to compare either to my Behlert as that was made solely for me by Austin himself, when this type of work was affordable by mortals.
I would really appreciate your thoughts on what to buy.
