I couldn't resist adding a photo of the Kimber I bought this morning. I use to be heavily into 1911's, but over the years have sold and traded them off for rifles......go figure!

Here's the new Kimber Custom II, with a pair of grips I already had on hand. I've ordered slim grip bushings and grip screws, along with a pair of Cocobolo slim grips, from Brownells.

This is a photo of my other 1911, a Springfield Lightweight Loaded, which has been to the Springfield custom shop, and the slide is done in Black T.

Congtats on the Kimber. Those are some good looking 1911s you have there.

For all the bad-talking I occasionally do about Kimbers, I will never, ever say they are not a good gun. They're great guns, and I bet you're enjoying the heck out of it. Welcome to THR!

Nice looking Custom II. If Kimber would get their crap together in the repair department they would start getting a better reputation.

very nice. I'd be interested in seeing the range report cause I've been eyeing a kimber myself...
