Hey Every one,
I am going to the Gun Show at Ft Worth this saturday and was wondering if you guys could give me some advice. I have shot the Para and the S&W before and I like them both. I am looking for a 1911 chambered in the .45 ACP and have the following guns in mind:

1. Para Ordnance P14
2. S&W 1911
3. Kimber BP-10
4. Colt (Gvt Model)
5. Springfield Armory
6. Sig GSR

I am a student and cannot afford to buy a Wilson Combat or a STI but if you guys can give me your opinions regarding the guns mentioned from 1 to 6, I would be much obliged. I am looking for a used pistol with a price tag of upto $700.

I have a Kimber TLE II (with internal extractor) and paid about $625 or so. I would highly recommend it. Some problems have arisen with the external extractor, which is why Kimber went back to the internals this year. Personally I have had no problems whatsoever, and it is my most accurate pistol I own.
