I have one, Remington Rand. It was issued to my grandfather in the war.. I used to fire it alot, then someone told me how valuable it was....so i stopped using it :doh[1]: I love it, always likes the 1911 since my service days. Shooting 9mm are cheaper.Steve

I've been looking at the Kimber's Ultra Carry II in .45acp or better yet the Ultra CDP II. I like the design and reliability of the 1911'a but wanted something small enough to carry concealed. I think either Kimber will fit the bill perfectly.

Got four of em, 2 colts, 1 springer and a colt built government issue, whaddaya want to know?
I wanna know is why when I lock the slide with the safety I can still pull the trigger and the safety will disengage and the hammer will fall. I am not talking about the safety lever on the handle. My brother in law picked up his pro carry 2 kimber today his will not disengage but the hammer will decock that was what he told me over the phone.I still need to look at it and see. I just have a clone made by a not so popular company but so far it has shot everytime I pulled the trigger and i got 4 mags and dump them all sometimes as fast as I can lol.

Sounds broke to me. But, I only have one 1911 and have only had it for 35 years. Mine is a Colt and doesn't do any of the things you describe, except shoot. When the slide lock is engaged, the disconnector should prevent pulling the trigger from dropping the hammer. When the slide lock is engaged, pulling the trigger should not drop the slide. The Colt 1911 does not have a decock function, as it was designed to be carried 'cocked and locked'. Sorry to intrude.JMHO

I don't know if it's the same one capitol was talking about, but Wes...check out the Springfield EMP. It's a 9mm, but instead of being a cut full-size frame, it's a whole new compact frame built specifically for the gun. I will own one one day.

I never got very involved in handguns, I have a desert eagle 44 mag and a beretta 9mm, mostly for home protection. I do have a friend that has a Kimber Raptor I believe, and my brother has a springfield. I've shot both and I like the Kimber. From what I experienced the Kimber is more accurate and felt better in my opinion. Again, I'm no expert on handguns, but that is my experience with different 1911's.

First guess is that the disconnecter may not be installed correctly. Part #5 on the parts diagram. Hint - Click on the parts diagram and it enlarges.

My smith told me of several recent machining problems from the manufacturer, guns had to be sent back to Kimber. Says Colt and Springfield is the way to go. I do have two buddys that shoot Kimbers and have had no problems though.

Hmmm... First I've heard of this. Wonder if it applies to the stainless steel models as well? I like the Springfield XD's too, but they're not a 1911 design. Even thought about jumping on the S&W offer (buy their M&P15 rifle & get the Sigma pistol for $99) but I think I'd rather have an AR built by Rock River Arms.

I've got one of the 9mm Sigma's on my carry permit. Nice little gun. Since I can have three on the permit, I also have a Ruger Speed Six, in 357 and a S&W 642 with the Crimson Trace lazer grips.

Do you shoot National Match and if so where?
I wish! These are the limited production run by Colt. Comes tuned from custom shop ready for prime time. My buddy fired less than 20 rounds on these gun... almost brand new. He is retiring and can't take the gun out of the country.
