Kimber vs Springfield

Postby brbob » Tue Aug 12, 2008 7:41 pm

I'm looking at .45 target pistols. I've narrowed my choices to the Kimber Gold Match VS the Springfield trophy. Anyone have experience or opinion on these. Thanks

Never shot the SA trophy...
I put about thirty rounds through a kimber gold match though and it was wonderful.

Both are fine target pistols. They are both capable of better accuracy than most shooters can take advantage of.

Both also have excellent reputations in terms of reliability, fit & finish, and factory service & support (although it's very seldom required).

I echo wwb's comments. You can't really go wrong with either make or model. But, all this is mute if the owner does not possess the level of expertise or the necessary training to take advantage of this technology...!!
