If I were still in the market for a brand new 1911, the Kimber would be top of my list. They cost around €1250 overhere, which is slightly over $1500.
For now, I got my mind set on testing the Norinco. If it's within my expectations, I will make the trade and start having it customised. I like projects. :D
Life sucks, get over it.
