The Warrior doesnt even offer FSC on a $1100+ gun. My recommendations on a 1911 under the TRP price would be the STI Trojan, all day, every day. But TRP over the Trojan and definitely the Kimber. I have a TRP and love it, ill probably never get rid of it. I am working on picking up a Trojan right now in 9mm. I have a Spartan, but my GF wants it so im going to sell it to her and kick in the extra $ for the Trojan

That is my advice. The Kimber may be "nicer" in cosmetic ways and ways that don't matter a lick. But the SA's are very good guns and you have SA to back you for a lifetime with no hassles.

Kimber Customer Service usually stinks to high HEAVEN.

If it were me, I'd save a few hundred and get a Baer TRS, CC. TRP's a nice, just not a $1300-1400 pistol IMO.

Between the SA and a Kimber, SA > Kimber.

If it is below the 1K mark, I don't think either is spectacular as far as parts quality or fit, but the SA is a 70 series and actually has good CS.

After the ordeal a friend went through with his Kimber and their CS, I will never recommend them.

Not Kimber, (unless it's a basic custom or TLE)

Good info and the Dan Wesson is a nice looking gun. Guess I should read up on more reviews and such about where the parts are from.
