I realize this topic has been pretty much beaten to death, but I am having trouble finding some specifics. I am ready to buy my first 1911 and have narrowed my choices down to two selections-- either a Springfield Armory PX9152LP Loaded black stainless Target, or a Kimber Eclipse Target II. Both have the features I want out of the box, and from what I read here it's best to buy the most 1911 I can afford right from the get-go. I will be buying a .22lr conversion for either as I enjoy plinking with my .22's I currently have and want to do the same with this; I also want the larger caliber so no .22lr 1911's. I am leaning a bit towards the SA at this point I think. I have heard of some reliability and quality control issues with the Kimbers that has me a little hesitant, and the fact that I cen get the Springfield for a few hundred less. However, being a sucker for matching parts I like that I can get a Kimber conversion. Thoughts? Thanks!!
