I have no issues with Kimber. I have one and absolutely love it. Haven't had a single issue at all other then from ammo. I'm debating on the reliability of a 3" or should try for a 4" with the compact grip.

My buddy has a bersa and I liked it but I am more along the line of a 1911 for ccw. I just have it out for that 1911 style lol

I have both the Defender and New Agent. I like the New Agent better. quick to get on site. have shot the Kimber and the XDS and like the New Agent better. if you can shoot them before you buy them i would advise it.

What's the difference between the new agent and the defender?

Just checked it out. I'm not sure how I would feel about the trench style sights. I do like the safety. We have a gun show coming up so I'll be looking for all of theSe

Defender has regular sites, New Agent usually has trench sites. Mine has trench sites.

My Kimber Compact (Commander slide, Officer frame) has been flawless, and cost less than both my 3" Colts.

I know of several that love their Kimbers, I love the way my Colts feel in my hand and shoot. I have never owned a Kimber, but have shot several.

i like the looks of the Kimbers, but at the price of a Kimber, until they decide to offer more than a one year warranty, i would never buy one new.
