I'm making the leap into the world of 1911 .45's and I've got it narrowed down to 2 guns. Springer Loaded Champion or a Pro CDP II from Kimber. Both have 4" barrels, both have upgraded everything, and both fit me like a glove. So I guess it comes down to reliability. Anybody out there have experience with either one? I plan on bobtailing the gun eventually. Help me out!!
