elenius Posted January 7, 2007 Share Posted January 7, 2007 I am buying my first 1911 next week, yay! It's going to be a single stack 45. I live in CA, so I can't get STIs (or the new Taurus, which otherwise seemed like a good bargain). I am considering: 1) Kimber Team Match http://www.kimberamerica.com/pistols/goldmatch/teammatch.php 2) Springfield Trophy Match http://www.kimberamerica.com/pistols/goldmatch/teammatch.php (sorry, no way to link directly to the gun on their new web site) Both have very similar sets of features: Stainless steel, adjustable sights, fitted barrels, magwells, etc. Local shops have both for about $1280, which seems like a good deal. On the Kimber, the grips definitely have to go, so that's another $60 for rosewood ones. I also like the look of the frame and slide a bit better on the Springer. But according to the specs, the Kimber has a lighter trigger pull: 3.5-4 lbs vs 4.5-5 on the springfield, which seems kind of high. But will I notice a difference? Is the Kimber trigger really better? I was hoping someone might be able to help me with my decision. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
