The Ed Brown with the installed optic.
I actually own a Glock 40 MOS with an RMR , a 7" KKM barrel and a Johnny Glock trigger. Just looking for something a little nicer.I have deep affection for my Nighthawk long slide 10mm, and I sold my Glock 40, which was a long slide 10mm. That said, were I to want one strictly for handgun hunting, I would have kept the Glock. Low maintenance, wouldn't care if it got scratched, dirty, or wet in the brush. One less thing to take up brain cycles that could be dedicated to the hunt.
Other than what looks like the frame what are the differences between the Bruin and the Kodiak?I think the Kodiak or Bruin from Dan Wesson would be my choice. Not that the NHC's, GI's EB's, etc. aren't great, but the DW options seem to offer quite a bit for the money.
Thanks for the insight .My first 1911 was a Kodiak. GI did a little work on it. Great gun.

But If I was to buy another LS 10mm it would definitely be a Nighthawk.
With your budget you can get a nicely loaded one from NH.
Good luck with your search!
Edit: BTW, a Bruin would be my second choice. I don't really like rails on a 1911.
Very nice LSI suppose if it is that kind of party...
I agree with OldCuz. Given your budget, it would be hard to beat a Nighthawk tailored to your personal tastes.
I run the ever loving hell out of mine in Bowling Pin. No reliability issues, shoots flat and fast. Allows me to go to the limits of what I am capable of with ease and repetition, and still rack up a few wins every now and then against youthful enthusiasm.
Fine looking shooters!Below is my Bruin in 10mm I bought several years ago.
However if I want to boony bang with 10mm I take one of my Ruger Blackhawks in 10mm. Here is my shorter barrel one with my Ruger SR1911-10.
I see the second 40 S&W cylinder of the Blackhawk getting milled out to 10mm Mag in many cases. Granted only a couple companies sell loaded 10mm Mag but Starline sells the brass.

I know what you r feeling. Now the the glock has its place, pretty bullet proof, shoots awesome with KKM barrel, not too worried about banging it around. ect.....I've been sitting on a G40 MOS.
Factory trigger feels like...well, you already know what it feels like.
I ordered the JG trigger.......it arrived, but he didn't have the right shoe on it and is sending the right one this week.
The factory barrel fitment is a sloppy affair....lots of play.
Waiting on a BarSto....that's gonna be a while longer.
Grabbed some 10-8 high sights and a Holosun 509 with C&H plate.
Over time I've now sunk enough dinero into that G40 that I could've made a huge dent into the cost of a LBC 6" 10mm.....which, is the 6" 1911 that has my interest.
For the 5K you mentioned there is a pile of sweet gats in your reach.
