Kimber Ultra RCP II

Anyone ever to get handle one of these? If so well does the "guttersnipe" style sight workout?

I like the idea for it, it looks like it'd be great for a carry gun. Just don't quite like the price for it.

I held one on Saturday. It's a nice feeling little gun, would be great with a Crimson Trace Laser Grip.

The gutter snipe sight was different, but was fairly easy to line up.

Not bad, but pushing $1K.....maybe if that lottery ticket comes through.

Think I'll pass for now.

I fondled one at the gun shop a few weeks ago.

I really liked how it felt, and if one can get used to the sights I'd expect it would make a good carry gun (assuming all the talk lately about Kimber's slip in quality is just talk).

If I ever buy a Kimber Ultra I want the grips from the RCP (I think an Eclipse with those black grips would look sweet).

I also like the shorter beaver tail.

Having only handled and disassembled, but not shot one, here is my limited $0.02......
While the gun may have it’s place in ones handgun battery it’s my opinion that these guns are way too small for their intended purpose as a primary carry gun and the marketing ploy that Kimber has built around this gun (Refined Carry Pistol) is just that..... smart marketing. I for one wouldn’t be too comfortable carrying a gun without any sights ‘cause if I have to shoot someone I’d like to make sure I hit my mark..... sights generally help in that regard. In the role of a back up gun the RCP2 might have some valid points but for a gun I may have to fight for my life with I would still prefer something bigger and easier to use.... Oh yeah and a good set of sights is always helpful. ;)

I bought the first one I saw, and put about 200 rounds through it. I found it very difficult to adapt to the gutter-type sights, but then this is a deep concealment close-range pistol. I decided it was not applicable to the broad range of situations I encounter every day so I sold it.

Buy mine for $800!! I've only got about 50 rounds through it. I have to admit that at first I did not like not having conventional sights but once I started shooting it I realized I was still hitting with regularity. I'd like to keep it but I really need to reduce my handgun inventory!! My loss is your gain. It would pass as new. Let me know if you're interested.

Is your RCP the external extractor model or non-external extractor if non is it still avalilble?

We had a brand new one come into the store on Friday, as a "special order"
item for one of our customers. I got to handle it, but wasn't impressed one
least little bit. If I must say so, its more ugly than a GLOCK~!:uhoh: :eek:
