    Any opinions on current production 1911’s? Kimber, Springfield’s “new” Range Officer model, others?

    I have the Springfield Arms 1911-A1 and I think it is as good as or better than a Colt national match version. In fact I have been offered full trades which I immediately put the kabosh on. It is easily as accurate as any match grade weapon and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

    I’m looking at getting my son a Kimber contact as his backup weapon as soon as he gets on with a PD somewhere. Graduated the academy 20 months ago and still hasn’t found a job.
