Hi Everyone,

Thinking of dipping my toes into the .38 Super waters.
Would like to hear your thoughts / opinions on who makes the best production 1911 in .38 Super.

Happy New Years!

1k +/-. Would like all steel and full size for the first one.
Looking at the Colt Competition at the moment.
Thanks

I'm here, you're not
If a good 1911 in 38 Super is desired, I'd start with a DW or move up to a Les Baer or just get one from Joe Chambers at CCP (good, better, best). If you don't want to spend what a DW or better costs, then a Colt.

I personally don’t care for the PM-38. Aside from that, I don’t see anything that fits my criteria from DW. I would be all over a Blued Valor in 38super.

I do wish DW made more finish options, I love a blued gun. If you really want blued, look at the prancing pony, I have been seeing a few for sale.

I have 2 Kimbers. 1 5” Eclipse, 1 4” HD, they both have had 1000,s of rounds ran through them. Great all steel pistols, though I did replace the main spring hosing on them, they were plastic. I know a lot of people talk down Kimbers, but I have several, and all are great quality pieces!
