i owned a kimber for exactly six rounds. on the sixth, the internal extrator failed and teid up my gun soild, requiring a factory return. i expect more than that when i spend 1200$+ on a pistol. my 500$ glock has fired over 20,000 rounds and never failed me.

SW,

What brand do you feel surpasses the 1911? Not trying to start anything...but ever since I bought mine something has just clicked.

I've shot Glock .40S&W, Heritage RR 22lr/mag, Para 1911 and own all the following; hi-point c9, Springfield 1911, Taurus Judge, Beretta 92FS and Charter Arms 38SP Snubby.

While I enjoy all the handguns I have fired and owned I still say the basic mil-spec 1911-A1 is the best mix I have owned in reliability, stopping power, maintenance, capacity, conceal carry and accuracy. I'm not saying there are not better handguns. Just want to know what you have in mind. Personally i'd like to try some more out.

The Glock was nice. But unfortunately I wasn't any more accurate then with my 92FS which so-so in my opinion.
SIGs P series of pistols run circles around it for accuracy and durability with modern desgin cues including decocker, better sights, better ergonomics and more durable design with better materials. for teh plastic fantastic crowd, either 3rd generation glock or the beretta Px series pistols have the same advatages with addition of light weight and reliability that verges on foolproof. the only thing they lack is the decocker of the SIG deigns. the 1911 design is a fine platform, but outdated IMHO.

Yeah I passed up on a Storm and regret it till this day. 399 new from a police contract that was canceled. Got my 92FS the same way. But this was just this past year. The .40S&W Glock was 3rd gen. Again not a bad gun. I would dabble in the Glock/Storm compact model pistols for conceal carry in the future.

The big question is the SIG. Are you referring to the SIG226 that the Beretta won the military contract for. Or a different model in general.

Thanks again for your reply.
the entire P series of SIG pistols is basically the same, except for physical size, caliber and some options. the operating system is the same throughout the series. my P6 made in 1974 is the same as a brand new P229 or P226 today. the only blowback SIG is the 380 P232 and teh mosquito in 22 lr. in general, the enitre lin eof SIG pistols is absolutely top of the line for quality, durability and reliability. they are worth every penny of the sometime exorbant prices they bring. A SIG is in reality a pistol you will own for the rest of your life. you will not wear it out. The navy SEALs use them in every enviroment from salt water to jungle to sand and swear by them. i am by no means a SIG fanboy. they have problems just like every other gun does. But the problem children are few and far between and SIG customer service is up there with HPs.
