Kimber Desert Warrior
  • Very accurate
  • Rich aftermarket
  • Beautiful to look at
  • Not super reliable
  • Finicky on mags and ammo
  • Field stripping can be difficult
Editor’s Note:

The Kimber Warrior is an outstanding gun from the looks department. If you are a buyer who is strictly into guns for self-defense and can only purchase one gun, I’d steer clear of this shooter as it’s not the most reliable. Our reviewer experienced some issues while testing and performed well only with the right mags and ammo.

By The Numbers - Kimber Desert Warrior

Definitely an accurate gun, pinging targets with ease
Very finicky and difficult to keep up and running

Feels pretty cool and controls are decent

Colt Combat Commander


The Colt Combat Commander is a 1911 that looks as good as it shoots. It runs well and seems to be a durable handgun. That said, users accustomed to newer, polymer, striker-fired guns may find it a little lackluster. But tried and true 1911 fans know the value of a good ole Colt 1911. The Combat Commander doesn’t disappoint.
