Sorry for your experience with the TLE II. I've never thought that any of the higher priced 1911s should have those sorts of problems. And, I've always thought that the idea of having to break them in was questionable. But, I know others swear by it.
As others have said, you never know for sure what you'll get with "production-line" pistols. I've had zero problems with my CDP Ultra, and it's my favorite. My Springfield Champion wouldn't group worth anything, so I traded it on the Kimber (never regretted that). But I'm sure some folks have had great experiences the Champion.
