Hey everyone, I need some help. I have never really been into 1911s however, recently they are starting to catch my eye. Mainly because of the Aniversary of 100yrs, but also just because they are an american classic and they just feel natural when you point them. Anyways, Im an H&K guy obviously and Sigs are my second favorite type of guns. I prefer quality and am willing to spend some money. I dont skimp on my gun buying. That being said, I realize the best would be like an Ed Brown, or Wilson Combat, but Im not sure if I want to spend 2-3000 on one. I am mainly looking for quality in reliability, and accuracy, and I like the Idea of Colt as they are a classic and hold their value extremely well. However, I am also into the more modern designs that kimber has like the raptor, etc, but dont like what I have hear abouit the MIM parts and some things about customer service in their department. I have also been looking at springfield armory's loaded in ss. I am not really sure which way to go. Like I said im not normally a 1911 guy so I never really got into them therefore idk if things like MIM parts in them actually matter, I mean an H&K is basically like a big MIM gun and it works great so idk. I am leaning towards the idea of a colt government model, I like the fullsize, and mainly just the fact that it is a colt. That being said, I know Colt holds their value as a collector gun, but how does it actually hold its name in the reliability department? Reliability is probably my main concern, as I DO shoot my guns. I dont own safe queens. It is not intended to be a safe queen by any means. Even though I love and mostly carry my HKs I would like to be able to trust my life to it every now in then when I feel like sporting the 1911. So, all this being said, I basically am asking the 1911 afacionados to chime in and give me their honest opinions. Keep Reliability, Accuracy, and Overall value in mind. Sorry for the long post. Also, if you bought on or the other, what would you change on it if anything, and how expensive and simple/hard would it be to do. Thanks Guys!
