How many have then and don't like them? What pistol would you use for home defense if you had a choice? How are the Kimbers doing here that were not running right? I have a double stack P14 Para limited I used for race gun next to my bed.

I don't own one but have been looking at them lately. The looks are killer but most are only 7 or 8 shot capacity. There are some high capacity 1911's out there and that would be the only model I'd be interested in. The Para has the P14 and I think a P12. Kimber (I heard Kimber has problems and a short warranty) use to make one and Springfield (lifetime warranty ??) makes one. Still doing my research.

How old is the 1911AI ? My p14 Para is huge and with 15 rounds of 45 acp it needs training wheels. STI also makes a double stack 45. My carry 45 is a Kimber CDP and it has a life time warranty and runs fine. Have been looking for a 5" single stack. Springfield trp high on list ,Les Baer is only $200. more. Understand springfield is farming out parts to outside USA.

Does the milspec run well with all ammo? May be a base gun for a build.
