Two... A Kimber Ultra CDP II and a Kimber Pro Rapor.
When John Browning invented the 1911 in 1908, he originally named it the 1911 Kimber.
Remember what Sam Colt said? Something like, "God didn't create all men equal, Kimber did"!

5 - S & W e series , colt 1991 commander, Kimber ultra crimson carry, sig extreme, colt new agent. More coming soon
Currently 2, a S&W Compact Pro (3") and a Kimber Ultra CDP II. Probably will be looking for a 4" or 5" steel frame sometime in the next 5-6 months for heavier range use.
None anymore....had 2, went back to revolvers.

no 1911's for me yet. It's on the list though. Unfortunately, there are a few things still above it on the list. I've got a 22-250 that i've been piecing together for about 3 years now that keeps getting postponed as I buy other stuff....gotta finish that project. Then I NEED to get an AR built just because they are cooler than my old trusty mini-14....then I want to send my 870 off to have it reworked for more defensive purposes...then 1911.
Before all of those things though, I have to decide on which sights I want to put on my glock 17 and 19...this "hobby" / whatever else you'd call sure seems to be an ongoing project. :)
One...and that's not enough...

I to have a few one a rem mod 1911 my father inlaw had In wwll.
Colt series 70 .45 goverment Model pretty much stock, a Colt Combat goverment model in .45 pretty much tricked out & both run like tops.
Also have a Kimber Pro Raptor with a Ed Brown Bobtail slim VZ grips & all the Kimber MIM parts removed & replaced with Ed Brown steel parts. It ran great for a couple of thousand rounds now it likes to "nose dive jam" or double feed. So I can't seem to fix it . Its now in the shop of the best 1911 smith I know If he can't get it to run more than a couple of thousand rounds without another major fit I am DONE with Kimber & ANY 1911 with MIM parts & soft (steel) frames.
Newest 1911 is a .22 rimfire Colt (Walther) Gold Cup under a 1000 rounds but this pistol so far is a lot of fun! All my full sized Govt. Model holsters fit it & can carry it cond. one, this fall it may well be my "woods bumming" gun.
Sure do like the looks of the new stainless Colt Combat Commander XSE.
I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
Just one. For now. Colt Series 80 stainless govt. model. Still coveting any number of classics and new models
