Guns and Ammo’s Patrick Sweeney suggests that the top three 1911 models are the Kimber Custom II, the Super Carry Pro and the Ultra RCP II. All three use .45 ACP and interchangeable ammunition clips.

On the other hand, Jim Downey from Guns.com reports that the Kimber Eclipse Target II and the Custom Target II are “what 1911s should be.” Downey reports that while the two weapons have different chambering, in tests, they performed comparably. The only drawback that he reported was that he would not use the Eclipse as a carry piece without first adding target sights and the extended beavertail. He did, however, say that it would work well as a home-defense weapon straight from the box.

"The Illustrated Directory of Guns," by David Miller, explain
s that any Kimber firearm with the “II” suffix means that the weapon is fitted with the Kimber firing-pin safety system. SightM1911.com describes it as being “the Swartz safety developed for Colt before the Second World War.”

  • Solo Carry 9MM Micro-Compact (Model #3900001)
  • Solo Carry Stainless 9MM (Model #3900002)

Hunting Rifles Review recommends the Model 84L (long) action rifle. According to Kimber, the 84L is slightly longer than the 84M to accommodate more powerful cartridges, including the .270 Winchester and the Springfield .30-06. They are the lightest weight production rifles in their class and are designed to have the highest velocity and the flattest trajectory.
