Custom gun builders aside, who makes the best model 1911A1 pistol on the market today?

    My Kimber Custom II combines all of the virtues you list, and is proven reliable. Plus, I have the .22 LR conversion kit for plinking/practice/small game. I was so impressed, I bought one of their bolt action .22 rimfires, and later an Ultra Covert II for The Bookkeeper. Currently considering another Kimber in .38 Super.

    Proverbs is right.
    For self defense, you don't need a competition grade target pistol. You need reliability.
    For eye appeal, you want high quality fit and finish.

    "Best" means for whatever specific purpose you need.

    For shooting tiny groups in competition, it is Kimber.

    My smith and wesson and Sig Sauer have put my colt and springfield to shame. My smith shot super tight groups right out of the box. My third choice would be my kimber custom.

    I also have a Kimber Custom II. I could not be happier with it and have a hard time imagining something that would be better other than in cosmetics (gold plated, ivory grips, etc). It is highly reliable and above all is extremely accurate. I used to shoot competitively many years ago and would have to pay an additional $2000 for accuracy work to make top notch pistols anywhere near as accurate. The Kimber comes that way today out of the box.

    Most 1911s nowadays go bang when you pull the trigger. This one does that but allows you to consistently hit a dime at 20 yards if you have a steady hand.

    Having just purchased a Sig 1911, the action is smooth as silk and man is it accurate. Of course, all my non-revolvers are Sigs, so I might be partial to them.

    I'm very pleased with my Kimber Custom II. It has digested about 2800 rounds, many of them reloads, and operates accurately and reliably as long as I keep it clean.

    Kimber.
    Brock Holloway- After my one and only experience with a Rock River Arms Commander style, I would not have said weapon for a trot-line weight.

    Kimber makes a great .45. I have had one now for about 11 years now and it shoots better today than when I got it. Excellent trigger, great slide, and accurate.

    My nephew has the Kimber with the .22 conversion and really likes them.
    I have the least expensive .45 i could find but i still favor my .40 glock because of the large capacity mag.
