Q:
Of the manufacturers of 1911's, who do you think is making the best stock gun at this time? Stock guns that you have first hand experience with or know someone who has had first hand experience with. What order would you rank the top three or four ? I am thinking of the Remington but realize there are several others in the same category.

Have shot the Colt, Sig and Kimber within the past year. They all go bang when you pull the trigger. Colt are more expensive but hold their value better.

1.Smith & Wesson 2.SIG 3.Kimber.
I carry the S&W most often since it is one of the most accurate pistols out of the box I have ever owned. All three of these guns are solid well built and fun to shoot.

Any 1911 that costs $500 and up will feel solid and go bang when you pull the trigger as long as you don't put throw a military grade torture test and clean it about every 400 or 500 rounds(not that it can't work if it's dirtier than that). And if you do have a problem with a 1911 it will most likely be a simple failure to feed, and most 1911 failure to feeds are probably the fault of low quality ammo and bad magazines anyway. But the more expensive ones will probably look better, feel better, and be more accurate. For example, there are two 1911s curently in the house, one is a Taurus the other a Kimber. The Kimber looks better, feels better, and shoots better than the Taurus. But would the Taurus work fine for anything I would use it for or put it through? Unoubtedly. But anyway, as for your list jhjimbo, I would say Kimber, Sig, Smith and Wesson, and Colt all tie for first place.

My vote goes to the Springfield Armory line.
They are made in Brazil, but have very strict quality control, and first-class customer service.

Correction-put it through, not "put throw."

The STI Sparten (their low ball entry) is the most accurate hand gun I have ever shot. Just because it is not a common brand does not mean it is not good.

My friend bought a Kimber and had major problems(wouldn't feed) and he had less than satisfactory results with their customer service. Took over 5 months to get his firearm back.

I have a Remington R1 and am very impressed with it. Accurate and dependable.

I've only use the Kimber and have been amazed at its accuracy from the first day I shot it. I used to have to spend about $2000 extra to get the kind of accuracy that comes out of the box in a simple Custom II. I have been as happy as possible with mine. I suspect that there are several other great choices too but know this is a good one.
