I suspect you wouldn't have regretted the Sig or the Kimber either.
They are both excellent 1911's.
I agree, but there were a few features that pushed Colt to the top for me over the Kimber and SIG.
-Didn't care for the external extractor or slide profile of the SIG.
-Colt has fewer MIM parts and general concensus is that QA is better than Kimber.
-Price of a Colt is about the same, and well, it's a Colt.
Yes - that last part had a lot to do with it.
