cmonsterz: I'm surprised that the Springfield is made in Brazil...and still a $1k gun. If that's the case, I guess that I'll stick with Kimber. Thanks for the great show and tell!
GunWebsites: LOL, no prob, thanks
southernrebelmarshal: A lot of assholes commenting. Great vid. If yall don't like it here's an idea that may be hard for yall to comprehend(don't freakin watch it. If youre gunna complain send him a check or shut the freak up. Sorry G Webs. Tired of peoples bitching.
Ray: I'm surprised Kimber is still in New York
Isandring: my springfield micro 1911 was made in Geneseo, IL according to the stamp on the frame, not Brazil.
Irakproductions: Hell no after seeing blown barrels from range ammo in kimber barrels I think I rather take this one foreign and go springfield.
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.
James Owens: some people would rather send all the cash spent back in the U.S economy ....but i dont like kimber iv had bad luck with them but my SR1911 CMD seems to work just fine
GunWebsites: they are both
the plastic XD line are made in Croatia
their 1911s are made in South America
J Wilson: I thought Springfield was Croatian not Brazilian
John Smith: Why does it matter if it's made in Brazil?
CPHannigan: Do some research. Springfield Armory 1911s aren't a rebranded Taurus.
Phauxtoe: Yea , Brazil is known for its High Quality Craftsmanship! (sarcasm)
I am not paying $1000 for a Taurus rebranded!
CPHannigan: $1000 for a gun made in the US??? It doesn't matter where it's made. A good gun is a good gun.
Phauxtoe: $1000 for a gun made in Brazil???
charles martin: those would make nice concealed carry weapons. either one.
ndguitarplayer: Doesn't the Springfield have melted edges also or no?
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.
CPHannigan: After Kimber's change of hands, I don't think I'm buying a newer one.
John Doe: Kimber wins.... US made, US designed, front strap checkering and "melted" edges.
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
GunWebsites: anything else you require from videos you watch ?
james cleveland: A little more in-depth comparison would be nice. Trigger pull, functioning, etc, etc. maybe some range action.
smooretogo: Do you think the Kimber CDP models which weigh less(alloy frame) would be more or less accurate than the heaver Kimber Tac Ent 2(steel) model ...to get used to??? As far as recoil etc.... I have a choice to buy between the two and cant shoot either before I buy.... damn it!
...Springfield just isnt an option in the buy
itsjimmyo: A little more tech info would be nice. thanks for the video
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 too.
butchy586: i woud'nt do anymore reviews,if i were you.you didnt give any helpful information at all.no info on how the pistols run or what kind of ammo runs well.it was all about cosmetic bullcrap.find something else to ocupy your time..AIRBORNE..
ImaJunkie111: What about Glock vs Colt vs Kimber vs Springfield vs Walther vs HK vs whatever
MrTR3gunzz: seriously- a gun review without a review. thanks for the displaying. that was shot well- but for the information of your input on how they ran, I likes & I wishes would make it much better.
GunWebsites: no, just not stupid about it
Gregorio Gonzalez: Bias 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 the springfield.
Lunchbox1911: Mine don't say brazil it just says geneseo il usa I wonder what the diff. is in mine and that one?
Wes Kinah: neither of them are "ugly" but i don't like the 3 colors.
DailyChannel: Whats the difference in the Springfield Ultra Compact 45acp and the micro compact
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.
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 charge.
LUKEwhatUUP: if its a good gun customer service shouldn't be the deciding factor, right? :P either way, i have a kimber and their customer service has been great to me. got my slide refinished for free. other than that i havent needed their CS. gun has been flawless through 2000 rounds.
DailyChannel: I have a question, I was thinking about trading a guy who has a Springfield Armoray microcompact 1911 in 45ACP with rosewood grips & rubber hogue grip he said it doesn't like hollowpoints and it likes corbon the best. He said 1911's are very picky. Is true he wants to trade me for my FN Seven even its 2 years old his 1911 my FN Seven is 4 months Old. Is that Springfield 1911 Microcompact worth it? Or the issue not liking hollowpoints mean the gun is crap
kowpieunleashed: kwl vid! would love 2 c one on the springer V10 officer :D
MrCheesebee: I have used both weapons and the kimber just has the better quality! Springfield is a very nice weapon also, just doesn't seem to be as smooth as a kimber. Just my take on it.
rtlaney: When you pay 1000.00 or more for a pistol you should never have to call CS.
rtlaney: I have owned 12, stayed away from external extractors and never had a problem. I have owned a Springfield Loaded Champion, and a TRP both had improperly cut feedramps and rough breech faces. Buy American!
eric miller: blah blah blah blah this that this that this...oh wait, springfield brazil, kimber newyork,? ill get a kimber please
One800Tony: Agreed. SA has (in my experience) great customer support.
pitt41: i made the classic rookie mistake and bought a gun that did not fit my needs when i was younger . now i am much older and considering buying a new pistol for ccw really like the 1911 compact both of these are great examples
Aubrey H: Id take either 1. Both Beauties! thanks for Sharing.
CAVSFAN2360: Which one is the better gun when it comes to accuracy and reliability? Any input is appreciated cause I'm looking to get my CCP Thanks
