    Have you shot either of them to see the one you like better? I had a beretta did not like it got rid of it and bought the springfiled. Springfield is so much better imo.

    Only one of those has been the US Armys official side-arm since, you guess'd it...

    I shot the M9 in the ARMY which is practically the 92fs. I haven't shot the 1911 but I've heard good things about it.

    Haven't shot it for years, but when we did (a lot).... just a typical cleaning kit & barrel snake to clean out the barrel. But honestly, it really never got dirty (in a sense). Or maybe we just didn't shoot it enough?

    And they've carried them since when..? The 1911 is still in service today (by some, not all), 100yrs later... Because it's reliable...


    I suggest the OP join-up on the 1911forum dot com & start reading...

    And may I suggest a pre Series II Kimber, over your S/A version...

    I voted 1911, b/c I cant stand beretta pistols. IMO, go with an H&K....

    I would say the Springfield but I am biased as I recently bought a Springfield Champion Lightweight 4" 1911 about a month ago and love it.

    The 1911 is a design that has not been bested in the 100+ years they've been around IMO. If you had listed a Sig instead of the Beretta it might be a toss up for me, but this one is easy :D

    I've ran about 60-65 mags thru my friends Kimber Pro-Match... Never hesitated, failed, jammed, nada...

    I puts rounds down range everytime you pull the trigger... :evil: Nothing stops like a .45 ACP either...!

    1911. I just picked up a Kimber CDP and I love it. I never had much interest in 1911s but now that I have one I can't believe I didn't get it sooner. It's really fun to shoot. It can cost a pretty penny to shoot as well so maybe that plays into your decision making process.
