Re: S&W 1911 vs. Kimber Custom II
I've got Kimber 1911's and S&W revovlers. Both are exellent. A rumor, that I cannot substantiate, is that Kimber frames/slides were made by S&W - and may still be made by them. If that's true - what's the diff?
Basically fit, finish, and custom touches. I know this sounds trite - but look at the two guns, compare the fit, finish, and extras that you get. Due you place a $100 value on the difference? If not - S&W, if so, Kimber.
I don't think you'll go wrong either way.
