ukfan4sure1: I hated to hear "Brazil".... I try to buy USA made if possible.
OilThe Gun: @GunWebsites LOL, I'm sticking with Springfield,SF, from here on out.
terry taylor: my brother has a kimber i have a springfield .springfield feels better in
my hand.but my hands twice as big lol
aikido10: Springfield hands down
BSUPERSABRE: can you do a fireing comparing
charles martin: those would make nice concealed carry weapons. either one.
GunWebsites: anything else you require from videos you watch ?
itsjimmyo: A little more tech info would be nice. thanks for the video
GunWebsites: @URBANAMERICANTAC lol
james cleveland: A little more in-depth comparison would be nice. Trigger pull, functioning,
etc, etc. maybe some range action.
aulvalenzuela21: it seems to me like the kimber has a little more detail work?
Isandring: my springfield micro 1911 was made in Geneseo, IL according to the stamp on
the frame, not Brazil.
LUKEwhatUUP: my buddy got a springer and experienced this. it just doesnt have the same
smooth feel as my kimber. its still a nice gun tho. man i tell ya, when i
rack the slide on my kimber after a good cleaning, i get semi-erect. it
feels like rubbin sticks of butter together. functions flawlessy as well.
eats anything i feed her.
Corey Spicer: Spiringfield all the way!
benny13666: kimber its better than springfield for tooo much !!
Lunchbox1911: the springfield is worth it.it will feed everthing you shoot hollow points
and all . I have both springfield and the kimber.both are nice but I favor
Marrs47: Don't know if New York qualifies as US anymore these days
BigRed30378: update: all Springfield slides and frames are made in brazil, all other
parts manufacture and final assembly occurs in Illinois, doesn't matter if
it says GENESEO IL or BRAZIL on the side of the frame because all of them
have been manufactured the same way since 1974. springfield customer
service rep told me that.
usbadass: @GunWebsites keep filling them please...gives me something to do throughout
GunWebsites: @saj12100 by then I hope we have 3D cameras or something so we can re-do
all our other vids !!!
BigRed30378: what is going on? my springfileld was made in Geneseo, Illinois! when did
they outsource to brazil?!? can you still buy factory new AMERICAN made
MyHollowpoint: Two great pistols! Springfield wins because of the mainspring housing! :)
DailyChannel: Whats the difference in the Springfield Ultra Compact 45acp and the micro
butchy586: yeah,it would be nice to have a range report.group size,ammo function
report.that is the point of these reviews.thats why i watch them.i kept
waiting for it and it never happened,much like most of the videos on youtube
kalif151byccrew: @GunWebsites Great answer!
John Doe: Kimber wins.... US made, US designed, front strap checkering and "melted"
Mr2fierce: springfield for their way better customer service and warranty
CPHannigan: After Kimber's change of hands, I don't think I'm buying a newer one.
CPHannigan: $1000 for a gun made in the US??? It doesn't matter where it's made. A good
gun is a good gun.
HaloMadness007: they both look very ugly
Ray: I'm surprised Kimber is still in New York
joesphx19: As far as looks, both guns look as they should, compact 1911s, nothing bad
or good about that. It's how they shoot that matters. I have a Kahr .45
that I am not so hot on and am looking to trade for a different .45 so
these are candidates.
jmmurdy: Springfield sorry kimber.
URBAN AMERICAN TACTICOOL: man that sucks for the first guy. lol
John Smith: Yeah, guns are a weird market. There are so many foreign producers, but the
US is the only super large consumer of them.
xdsshooter: Not stupid about it? Hmmm? WW1, WW2, vietnam? I'd say your Glock has a lot
of proving to do before being considered the superior firearm. If you're
not a fan of a 1911 why do a review on them? Stick to your plastic wonders
and leave the real guns to the men.
GunWebsites: @HaloMadness007 aww too bad for you then.. we had planned to give away both
of these to the first person to comment, unless they left a stupid
ImaJunkie111: What about Glock vs Colt vs Kimber vs Springfield vs Walther vs HK vs
GunWebsites: @OilTheGun is that some 'internet way' of swearing at us?? LOL
LUKEwhatUUP: ive heard that about 1911's. mine eats everything. springfield would
probably do a feed ramp polishing or something along the lines fre of
GunWebsites: no, just not stupid about it
bamdizzle08: I have the EMP40 and it is a super sweet pistol. One of my new favs.
ulysses vidales: can i have 4
saj12100: @GunWebsites That would be awesome! They probably cost pike $10,000 though
ringfactory: @GunWebsites what!!!!????? how could you say that!!!!
butchy586: 1911's ammo kinda slams into the frame and then moves up into the
chamber.you will have more problems with blunt rounds or flat hollow point
ammo.other pistols do this too.alota times 1911's just need a little
polishing on the feed ramp and in the chamber throat.you can do this
yourself with a dremel and a little flitz polish or any other kinda of
metal polish,you could use a drill and a small cotton nap instead.if you
shoot enough,it would be a good idea to do this to your other semi-autos
wentz3306: i just put my down payment on the springfield an hour ago! ;)
CaliforniaXlivin: @GunWebsites off topic i know, but glock 21 (prolly gen 3) or an HK 45?
which would you push towards for a first pistol?
NurseMan1911: Which one do you like better?
One800Tony: @Mr2fierce Agreed. SA has (in my experience) great customer support.
