    It can be both or one or the other, mine is both because I can't afford 4 2000 to 3500 dollar pistols, even though I would like too.

    Springfield
    Kimber
    Remington
    Rock Island
    Wilson

    due to colt suspending sales to the general public several years ago, colt is not an option, at least to me anyway.

    Tim from Black Ops Precision (Custom)
    Wilson Combat
    Ed Brown
    Nighthawk
    Baer
    Colt
    Springfield

    I own and shoot a Colt. I sold a Nighthawk. I owned a Kimber 8 years ago and sold it after watching several fail on the SWAT range. MIM parts and the external extractor on the TLE Kimber were a joke as far as a 1911 of any quality. For the Cost Springfield is much better.

    My opinion. There really are not 10 best. More like 5 or 6. There are some other small quality Custom shops out there.

    Fusion Firearms should be in there.
