Going on four years now and my Kimber TLE II has STILL yet to hiccup or give me a lick of trouble. Reliable and very accurate...right out of the box.

I think I got the only good Kimber! LOL

Bought my Kimber in 08, never had a FTF, FTE, stovepipe, jam etc. It's more accurate than I am and is one of my favorite guns to shoot.

People love to tout Springfield's customer service as being spectacular. That means that they are having to use it for issues with their guns.

I trust my life to my Kimber, which has never had a problem in the two and a half years I've had it. My wife trusts her life to her Sig, which has never had a problem in the one and half year she's had it. They're both great guns. I might give a very slight edge to Sig though.

Meh

Ya'll have fun with your expensive, fancy, modded out 1911's with their baggage.

Colt Series 70 MkIV Gov't Model - Still running strong. If it says .45 ACP on the rim, it works.

No bells, No Whistle, No do-dads or ding-dongs. No 8 or 9 or 10 or 11 or 12 round funky magazines. Just 7 round checkmate mags with a dimple.

A plain jane, blued Colt 1911, designed as John Moses Browning, the man who had his serious thinking cap on, designed it to be. No cycle issues, no feed issues, no jamming, no stove-piping...

Just 1911 perfection.

I got the other one, a TLE II stainless that is very accurate and so far, flawless. Brickboy I knew you had good taste!

People love to tell me that my Kimber and our Saab suck.

Neither have given a lick of trouble.

I agree about the Series 70 Colts....probably why I have two of them. People often race towards the more popular and modernized 1911s when the Colt NRM Series 70 1911s are still being made and a very wise choice, if you ask me.

I have limited experience with Kimbers, none of them owned personally by myself, so I can't speak as to maintenance on two of the three. Two of the three had major failures, I own a few 1911s, SAs, Knighthawk, S&W PC, Citadel, Colt & Sig, so I don't think it was me. I'd personally take the Sig over the Kimber, just as related to past experience. The one Kimber that didn't fail was WELL maintained, I'm very sure of that.

Don't compare a Kimber Solo to the 5" guns that are more true to the original 1911 design.

If you do some research, you will find that the 5" Kimbers in the Custom line are fairly good performers for the money. The higher end Kimbers and the other variations are iffy...as are many variations made by other 1911 makers.

The chances of getting a very good shooting basic Kimber by going with the Custom series 5" guns is actually pretty good.

Wasn't a comparison at all....simple saying that a $800.00 Kimber right out the box was crap!
