Default How many of you own Kimber??

Shortly, I am going to pick up my Kimber SS Pro Raptor II that I have on lay-a-way. Its a birthday present from my wife and 2 sons (but they dont know it yet). Anyway, just wanted to get a show of hands on who owns Kimbers. I also own a Kimber Ulra Carry II which is one of my EDC. Just love 1911's ...

Kimber Covert is a SA-WHEAT pistol.... Is it a carry pistol or strictly home defense?

It is pretty much the same as the Ultra II Carry, (see Kimber chart for specifics).
Sweet; pretty much. Light Alloy Frame, Meprolight night sites and Crimson Trace Laser grips.


This shot is after a lawn mowing session this last summer, a bit dirty.

It's for carry, HD, plinking, pests AND BBQ's

I have a few shots in the dirty pics thread.

I need to still add a crimson laser on my ultra carry. I have them on all my carry pistols.

I have several Kimbers and love them. I recently picked up a pro carry II stainless and got a beautiful set of grips from Browns Custom Grips. I am having some trijicon sights put on as well. I will post some pics when I get it back. This stuff can be addicting!!!

Love my Kimber TLE 2. Well over 1000 rounds and never a single problem. I don't particularly care for the factory rubber grips, so I ordered a set of African Blackwood slim grips from Sarge (Google Sarges grips) with his daily carry pattern stippling. .
