Between these two guns is there clearly a better choice or is it just a matter of preference.
STI > Kimber.
Given two high quality guns, who has the better reputation for customer service?
STI by a landslide!!! Kimber has spotty QC and pitiful CS. STI is the exact opposite
STI also has tool steel hammer/sear/disconnector, while Kimber is MIM
I had a ProCarry2. If I was buying that size again around $1k, I would hands down buy the STI. Don't get me wrong, the Kimber was nice...but it was my first 1911 to test the platform and gave me an idea of what I want and don't want in a pistola.
Based on the 1 STI and 9 Kimbers I have hands on with, the STI is a better gun. Granted my STI is a Legacy, so, that's not a fair comparison. I don't have any hands on experience with the Ranger, but STI makes great stuff. That being said Kimber makes a great gun as well. I'd be willing to put my Stainless Pro Raptor up against the Ranger, but my Pro Carry II is probably a lesser gun...in stock form...
Eat your heart out Ranger.
Have had a ProCarry Series I and now have an STI Ranger. The ProCarry was a nice pistol. The Ranger is spectacular!
You dont play fair!! Your Kimber is barely a Kimber anymore
That's about as stock a Kimber as this is a normal 911.
Hey, that's a turbo charged 911, so since my Kimber is turbo charged too, then it's a perfectly fair comparison.
Reminds me of when BAC called me out for posting this
as a representative of a DW Heritage
Ummmm that's not just any Turbo my friend.

Your MilSpec is even less of a stock gun.
Is that the black beauty in the back?
Oh, I must've forgotten to mention that I had Chuck do the GT2 RS upgrade on it right after he golfballed it.
