Kimber. An awesome 1911 variant.

Also have a Gold Cup and Rock Island 1911 clone.
Good enough for an inexpensive pistol.

Also have a Smith .41 magnum with 8 3/8 " barrel and
it's been ported and tuned.
Think I paid about $300 years ago.
They are selling on the auctions for over $1200 today.
M-28 Highway Patrolman like new, 4 inch.

26 in all, just my handguns.

I even have a dandy Marlin 1894 in .357.
Fun shooter.
Might even take a deer at 50 or so yards.

I recently picked up a used Kimber Ultra Carry II. It has turned out to be a great little 1911 variant, but did not start out that way.
About once in every magazine it would feed a cartridge into the chamber, but not all the way. Frustrating! Retracting the slide seemed a little too easy for guide rod springs spec'ed at 14 lb, so I  ordered a new, 14 lb set of springs and a 20 lb set, just in case.
Now, it feeds and ejects every thing I put through it. It doesn't seem to like Wilson mags, and my one failure to fully chamber a round out of over 100 I fired was with a Wilson. When the problem was present, it happened most often with Wilson mags. 
I have shot several mags full of round nose, and several brands of hollow points without a problem since then, unless I used a Wilson mag. With a drawer full of 1911 45 mags, I can just set the Wilsons aside.
