New 1911: Kimber Super Carry Custom HD
After looking at over 30 different 1911s today, I picked up the Kimber Super Carry Custom HD...and it was love at first grip. Yes it was too expensive, but the GS gave me a "frequent buyer discount" and it was a done deal.
Put 200 rounds through it, straight out of the box. Used 50 each of: Federal, Magtech, Winchester, & Independence. One FTF with the Independence (bad round). Otherwise it was flawless. Best production 1911 I've ever fired. When I got home & let my wife check it out, she fell in love with it...even after I told her how much it cost.
The only down-side is that it only comes with 1 magazine & the case is a generic interior with a Kimber logo on the outside.
Sorry. Cell phone pic. Will put up a better pic later.
