S&W 1911 vs. Kimber Custom II
Friends: I've done lots of research, read lots of reviews, fired the Kimber (not the S&W), and I think I have this narrowed down to these two guns. I can get the S&W 1911 from my local dealer for $600, with the Kimber Custom II coming in at around $700.
Obviously, both companies are reputable. I intend to use the gun mainly at the range, and for home protection. The general view on this forum seems to favor the Kimber brand, and I'd be curious to know what people think. Any S&W 1911 owners out there who have anything to say?
