So are you saying that you're compensating? :-)

A- Ehh, there's no such thing as a Browning 1911, unless you count the new, scaled down .22LR. A piece of 2011 history. John Moses Browning designed the 1911, Colt made it.

B - I've got three and counting, so...

C - That sums it up. [irony] You have great taste and know a lot about guns. And nothing to compensate. [/irony]

Never seen a Browning 1911, but I'm no expert. Love the Hi-Power!
A Colt Lightweight Officers ACP lives in my britches. My first was a Series 80 Government model, about 1985- ish? Seems like back then there weren't alot of people making 1911s. I've had them tuned somewhat for reliability. Other than springs now and then, I just shoot 'em and clean 'em. I'd probably go for a 2011 if I bought another. Any opinions on STI?

STI's are great guns, but don't run out of the box. I think you'd really have to find a gunsmith on the competition side of things to get them running right. For me though, I actually prefer a nice worked on double stack (2011, et al) to a single stack 1911. As a side note, Delta used to run double stack (2011) .40 cal's (or maybe it was .45 - I'll have to ask). They switched to Glock after having frame cracking issues and such on the STI's. No matter what you do to the 1911's, they simply aren't as reliable as a Glock, or an M&P.

All of this is under the assumption you will be running a gun hard / want to run it hard. A safe queen that goes to the range for 100 rounds every other week... you really could pick anything then. One of my favorite guns ever made is a HK p7m8 - I have a couple of them. That said, my carry is a Glock 19. I think what you want out of it will ultimately determine the route you go.

Hope this helps,
Cheers!

BTW... if you are looking at STI, check out Infinity - their internals are better

That's great info! Thanks!
I'm not a competitive shooter but I like to play.
P7 story for you: My cousin's husband is from South Africa. His Father, who lives there still, sent him home with a pistol last time he visited him. Something about how many guns a person can own there these days. Turned out to be a p7. I got to shoot it a few times. Great little pistol! Heavy by today's standards but nice to shoot.

Cheers to you as well!

Santiago,

I agree, by my post I was hoping to point that a real Colt 1911 were those created with the early designation

And not the ones created after Browning opened his own company

I tried all the Kimbers, and as soon as I held this one it felt perfect. I wanted to stay in the $1k range too.

Expensive but Ed Brown's 1911's are well thought of!
