    Kimber vs. Springfield again?

    Kimber - 1 Year Warranty
    Springfield - Lifetime Warranty

    Are we clear?

    Agree. Comparing an all steel bare bones gun to an aluminum upgraded carry model with a laser. Are you looking for a carry pistol? Range gun?

    They both have a manual (thumb) safety.

    From this thread
    http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/m1911/175354-kimber-ejector-service.html

    Kimber only advertises a 1yr, but sounds like they are standing behind their product for as long as it takes. Who knows, maybe Diocoles' experience is not the norm, but I am starting to see more and more threads about Kimber providing service after the 1 yr warranty


    Oh and good luck finding a 1911 without a manual safety... thats pretty much what makes a 1911. A 1911 is a single action, thumb safety, single stack all metal gun thats designed to be carried cocked, locked and ready to deliver 230 grains of pure awesomeness. :D
    IMHO
    just my 2c

    Trying to salvage their reputation, perhaps?

    I know it goes against the grain with all the errornet experts but I always thought the Mil-Spec was a dog. By the time you replace the crappy sights and the crappy two piece barrel you could have bought a pretty nice 1911. :confused:
