Don't get hung up on names, I suggest that you go to 1911 sites and read about each.  Have had at least one 1911 since the Army issued me one in the 50s.  My current inventory is: 3 Taurus, one each in 9mm, 38 Super & 45 acp., 1 Colt 45 a 60s model, 1 RIA 38 Super, 2 Springfield 45s, and a Para Ord 45.  Had a Kimber some backs had functioning problems and got rid of it.  Had a Colt Gold Cup that the rear sight would shoot loose, don't remember how many times I changed roll pins so down the road it went.  Don't really know if I'll buy anymore, if I do they will be in 38 Super though.  My 22 rf is a Ciener Platinum Cup mounted on a dedicated RIA frame too.  Got to love those 1911s.
