If you want to spend $1k on plastic you need to step it up a bit.

I have a couple of issues withthe Kimbers 1.) The breakdown of the gun is dumb. It would be hard to fieldstrip if you loose the wire


This is only true if you buy a "Pro" or "Ultra", aka Commander or Officer sized. Most, if not all, full sized Kimbers have a standard barrel bushing and guide rod.

And for the OP, 10mm is a good bit more expensive than 45 and is harder to find. But it is a hoss. It beats the 45 by a sizable margin in terms of power, but if this is your first 1911 I would stick with 45.

My vote is the S&W.

I like it. They have another one that is all black called the "nightmare" that is pretty sweet looking too. Have no idea if the "nightmare" is worth a damn though.

I bought the Carry version of the nightmare. I had to send it back because it threw brass back in my face almost every round. I tried 5 types of ammo but it didn't matter. Sig had to replace the ejector. Soon as it came back from Sig it went up for sale. It was a cool looking gun with a great trigger out the box I just couldn't get over the brass to the face.
