I started on a slippery slope last month. My first 1911. I narrowed my choices down to a XSE Combat Commander or a Kimber Custom CDP ll. I chose the Colt Commander ultimately. But I liked the Kimber a lot. I am a weak man. So two days later back to the gun shop and picked up the Kimber which was used but now abused. I reallly like the feel of the Colt best and both of them have been flawless so far, with the Kimber having a slight edge in group size. Could not go wrong in choosing either one IMO. Below are the pics of both.
