I'm buying a 1911 soon an the two I'm looking at are the SA champion operator and the kimber pro tle/rl ii. I'm leaning toward the SA because I like the brand. Any reason I should get the Kimber over the SA?
I ended up buying my wife a Kimber pro carry 2 9mm after I picked up the operator and it had constant FTE with multiple ammo brands. I hope the customer service is as good as SA! 4-6 week wait^^
a lot of people say that, yet when the time comes to name names they have a hard time naming some one that they know that has had issues with their Kimber.
Kimber puts out a lot of guns, and just like any other mechanical devices there are going to be some failures. It just so happens that when you are one of the largest 1911 mfg's you have a higher # of failures, although it may end up being a lower % than other mfg's due to the quantity they produce. Same goes For SA and their 1911's
I think that you will find many more people that are happy with their choice to get a Kimber than those disappointed.
Pick the one you like and don't rely on 3rd and 4th hand opinions from people on forums that may or may not be talking about something they have no personal experience.
