    Oh yeah when in a situation where you have to choose between a 1911 and a non-1911, well the answer is pretty odvious.

    Just adding my 3 cents from the friendly 1911 guy
    Exactly what I changed on my Kimber! well there you go another reason to buy a semi-custom instead. To my knowledge the 1911SC does seem to have the better quality of the production bunch overall. With production gun's you are going to have a lemon now and again.

    seems you need to decide what gun will be right for you. All the above guns you list should be reliable and are proven designs. What feels best in your hand? Do you want to have a single action short trigger pull or would a longer DA pull be better? Personal prefence rules most of us, rather than which is "best".

    Hey woodduckwallace

    Welcome to the forum.:unitedsta
    You would be well served with either a Kimber or a SIG.
    I would try both before you buy...if possible.
    One may feel more natural to you than the other & naturally, you'll shoot that one better & that would be the one to buy.

    welcome.
    Well before you buy one, I might suggest going to a range and trying each.
    I like the SIG because it fits me hand better. I don't carry one, I use Combat Tupperware because of a deal I couldn't turn down.
