I would like some recommendations on selecting a new 1911 in 45 ACP. I have a limited budget to work with, like it or not, and I have to keep it within about $1500 or so. I figure I can get a Kimber and have it worked on (can anyone recommend a good smith and how to contact them?), get a Valtro "as is", or possibly a Wilson KZ-45. Service after the sale is another important consideration for me. I have had some difficulties dealing with Kimber in the past, and I know nothing about the service or warrantee that comes with a Valtro. Wilson has been good to me in the past which makes me somewhat more comfortable dealing with them. Any feedback would be appreciated. Additionally, what kind of leather do you like for a gov't model?
