Lets talk High end 1911's for a spell...when I say High end I mean guns that start in the 2K plus range.

makers that come to mind are Les Baer, (one of my fav's, but don't own one yet) Wilson Combat, Nighthawk Custom.

Of course they all have many different models....

I've always lusted after a really really nice 1911 but have not thrown down for one...So who's got one, had one etc....

are they worth the $ or is it just style points and marketing hype....

I know we got at least one Les Baer owner on here...feel free to discuss any other high end makers I left out....lets keep it to 1911 guns that we know are 2K and up

I have not been all that impressed with my Kimber CDP....On a grading scale of A to F...I'd say my $1000 Kimber would rate a C....In fact if I ever sell a 1911...its the first to go

Kimber has never impressed me....I'd take a Springfield over it any day

Based on the comments here...no one actually owns any high end 1911's that have been mentioned...competition rigs don't count...They are in a world of their own

Oh Yeah....I hate Guide Rods....they are :bull: Give me that easy to take down, no tools needed bushing any day

I considered Canyon Creek Custom for some XD and XDM work....have not thought about them for 1911's

I'm kinda surprised no one here has had a Nighthawk or a Wilson Combat
