Other than user errors with my Kimber, it has been ideal. Being new to pistols, I was limpwristing it and that caused issues with extraction and feeding. Once I altered my grip and stance and firmed up the wrist, it has been shooting flawlessly.
Kimber, hands down. It's hard to beat the value. You don't quite get Les Baer or Wilson Combat quality, but you don't pay for that sort of quality either. I've had mine for about 6 years and put about 1500 rounds through it per year. The groups are still nice and tight and everything still fits the way it did from the factory.
They really help keep the muzzle under control and get the front sight back down. They were also much cheaper than checkering the front strap and refinishing the pistol. I went from a full sized H&K USP in .45 ACP to the little Kimber, it took some adjustment to my shooting technique.

I looked at 1911 and clones for must have been 8 months before I decided on buying the Kimber Custom II. I went with it because it offerd everything I wanted and was in my price range. I have never had a problem other than the crappy mags Kimber ships with them. They were replaced with Wilson Combat 8rd mags and now teh stock mags just sit in the safe and look good.
