I've been wanting another 1911 for a while now. In the past I've had a S&W 5" Stainless, a Kimber TLE II, and a Kimber Pro Carry II. I'm having a hard time deciding on which size I want to get. I really liked the size of the Pro Carry, but I also like the full sizes, and I was able to carry the 5" pretty easily. I carry a Glock 26 now, IWB, but plan to sell it and buy either a Kimber, Springfield, or Colt. My goal is to keep it aroud $750-900 initially. My goal for the gun is to look decent, shoot great, and be super reliable. I want a working gun. I know a lot of guns come with MIM parts now days, and I will eventually want to change out the MIM parts for milled parts. What is your expert advise? The only reason I'm leaning away from Springfield is because some frames are made in Brazil, I don't want anything but a US made 1911. Should I step up to a Colt? If I do, I don't want it to say "1991 A1" on the side. Should I go with a 4" or 5"? Stainless or blued/coated? If it is not stainless, I will want to get it parkerized. The Springfield Loaded is looking pretty nice, but is it a Brazilian gun? Thanks for any advise.
