I have an opportunity to buy Colt Commander stainless 04012
or a Kimber Pro Carry

Which to get, money being equal.
opinions by actual users and what makes you think so. Not for CCW

Colt. In a heartbeat.


I've never been happy with a kimber with the exception of the CDP Custom Shop job that they had. I shot it better than most 1911's for being a subcompact bull barrel. They did well with that one.

Go with what you want. Everyone has an opinion. Even the Glock opinion when the Glock isnt even an option for the topic. Colt is making some great guns now. There was a time when Colt was producing junk, but that is no longer the case. I believe Colt is making a much better gun than Kimber for the price. I own a Kimber and love it, but I'm ready to go back to Colt for future purchases.

I use to own a couple Colt 1911s, I have since sold them and have three Kimbers. The Colts were good guns, just rougher around the edges then the Kimbers. If you do get a Kimber I recommend one of there custom shop guns CDP, SUPER CARRY etc. Some will say the custom shop guns are just fluff, but having shot many of both custom shop and regular Kimbers there is a marked difference in the functioning (smoothness) and triggers in the custom guns.
