Complete target pistol beauty. Very well done. I want your Pardini. Bad.

Honestly, I'm just a little... little... tad curious how some of your high end 1911's stack up, but I'll trust your judgment in excluding them from the rankings.

Ok, I'll take your Mark 23 as well... really any of your HK's.

Thanks.

In my opinion, 1911s should be tested against each other, but I certainly understand your curiosity.

I'm going to put together some sort of 1911 buyers guide at some point, but the format will be a bit different than this thread.

I'll tell you what, I'll try to add a few of my best 1911s into this thread over the next few days.

Being that the 1911 is my favorite platform and that I own some full custom models built to the most minute detail, they should mop up these target pistols. A few of best semi customs will score very well also.

As good as they are, these are all production pistols, so going up against some of my 1911s isn't really fair.

Thanks for taking the time to post the comparison. Just finished reading it all. Very helpful as I am in the market for a high end target type pistol myself.

You should start your own youtube channel, you would be a big hit! Think about it at least.

That's awesome Cole.

Feedback like this from you and many others makes writing threads like this worth the time.

Let me know when you're ready to make a purchase.

Thanks for the review, I really will not be able to afford any of these pistols any time soon, but I live looking at your pictures.

Great read! I'm not really into the "target/bulls-eye" type handguns, I prefer "combat" handguns but it was still very interesting and I always enjoy hearing your input on a certain or guns. Thanks for taking the time to write it all out!

Great job on the review, Brian. I always appreciate your perspective on these types of firearms (and 1911's of course).

So far I only have a few of the guns that you reviewed, but the collection keeps growing. After my upcoming wedding, I'll be back to collecting with a purpose instead of just being a victim of opportunity. Hahahaha.....

Very cool Brian , thanks for putting this together my friend. I'm going to buy you a ransom rest for Christmas.

As promised, here are a couple of my best 1911s to add to the mix for comparison.





Infinity custom

Frame: Steel
Slide: Steel
Unloaded weight: 39.0oz
Price: $3700
Action: SAO

Accuracy: 10
Trigger: 10
Ergonomics: 10
Grips: 9
Sights: 10
Controls: 10
Finish: 9
Build quality: 10

Overall rating: 9.8

This comparison is almost unfair, as the Infinity is a one off custom build being compared to a bunch of production pistols. The Schumann AET barrel is about the best handgun barrel you can buy anywhere. Between this and the incredible tight bull barrel lockup, the Infinity just flat out shoots. The trigger is the patented Tri-glide system at about 1.5 lbs. Its the best trigger on any handgun I own. The Infinicoat finish is impressive and its extremely well built by some very skilled hands.

RRA Limited Match

Frame: Steel
Slide: Steel
Unloaded weight: 41.4oz
Price: $2400
Action: SAO

Accuracy: 10
Trigger: 9
Ergonomics: 10
Grips: 9
Sights: 10
Controls: 10
Finish: 9
Build quality: 10

Overall rating: 9.6

I've given this 1911 many accolades throughout the years I've owned it. I love everything about the Limited Match and the price includes the Black T finish. Unfortunately, RRA has stopped building 1911s, but they can be found once in a while on the used market. This model comes standard with a 1.5" accuracy guarantee at 50 yards and every feature you could want in a 1911. The Kart barrel also performs very well.

That comparative review was awesome! You're always so knowledgeable and helpful on the subject of 1911s, and it's great that you took the time to do such a concise write-up covering multiple platforms.

I'm a little disconcerted with the lack of carpeting variety, however.
