I am looking to buy a 1911. Kimbers are nice looking pistols, but I've heard a number of complaints about quality control. Colts seem to hold their value and have a good reputation. I'm looking at the Colt Combat Elite and the Colt XSE models. Out of these two models, which one is better? What 1911 is best? Things that I am interested in include reliability, accuracy, fit/finish. I am open to suggestions and insight. I don't have a budget, but I honestly cannot believe that what makes one pistol worth $3000 and another worth $1000 is worth the extra 2 grand. Please correct me if that extra money is well spent, but I can't imagine how it could be. With that being said, I'd like my 1911 to be $1200 or less. However, if I need to spend more for a high-quality pistol, I will do so. Thanks.
