From this point, it's easy. Just keep eliminating them til the only one left is American-made. :wink:

Guess I don't even know for sure. I don't see a match, between mine, and any of the current VZ grips. Maybe they're not VZ. There are no markings of any kind on the inside of the grips.

I have the Taurus PT1911 in stainless.. I couldnt afford nor did I want a $1000 1911.. I really just wanted to for the "cool factor" just to say yeah I have one of those haha..

I will probably shoot it only a couple times a year because .45 is so expensive!

But I paid $600 for it and I LOVE it, its very accurate to!

Plus it has a lifetime warranty :D

what warranty does Kimber come with?

because SA has a lifetime one also.

but i must agree that the PT1911 is a very well built gun, if you haven't handle one and slam it online go handle/ fire one you'll see for the money its a great deal.

but i like those Kimbers over the Taurus's and yes i have shot them both, it was a closer competition than i expected though. Kimber still pulled ahead by a little.

Good choice .... I'm looking at a stainless target loaded in 9MM right now.

I'd stick with the Springfields ...

One of the few guns I have sold and wish a million times I didn't sell was a Springfield 45ACP.
I will NEVER sell another 1911,
The Springfield was a great shooter, sold it, the guy that bought it left it under the seat of his car, a week later- he no longer owned the Springer!!
I wish I never sold it..., I don't know how many times I have said that, LOL!!

For pretty, get a Kimber,
For a 100% reliable shooter you can beat to death and it never miss a beat, get a Springer...
