Ok, I have drooled over them in many a gun rag. I have coveted them as I hear people talk about them. But....
Is it worth the money???
One of those Ed Brown, Les Baer or Wilson Combat custom 1911's run for close to and exceeding $2000. I am but an engineer, and cannot afford that kind of cash. I did scrape and save to buy myself a nice Kimber, and not having shot a true custom can say the Kimber was worth the $900 I paid for it. But is one of those customs truly twice as nice as the Kimber?
I am not trying to be sarcastic, I am trying to justify buying one or not buying one. Obviously if the gun works that well, and is that inherently accurate and reliable it would become my new daily carry. Anybody who has dropped the mortgage on one of these things please let me know.
