I once had a kimber bp ten 2 fullsize that was awesome and looked it to. It was super accurate and the only only had troubles feeding some cheap reloads a friend gave me. Literally ftfeed every shot. Other than that ball ammo and hollow points were fine. Another gun I wish I didn't sell. 10 round mags were good as well but expensive and hard to come by. I have to admit I thought it wasn't a real 1911 until I shot it.
Functionally, I'm sure they're just fine.
Aesthetically, an abomination.
I could probably overlook the ugly factor if Rock River ever actually sells any to the public. I think a Commander sized polymer 1911 would make a nice carry gun.
That old Kimber is like a unicorn these days. One in nice condition might be a worthwhile collectable someday.

The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see. - Ayn Rand
My brother has a Kimber ultra II. I am no fan of the 45 acp. But I enjoy shooting that pistol. The night sights are easy on my old eyes, For a pistol with s 3" barrel it is very accurate. It could be the Kimber is the first sub compact pistol I have ever shot that I can hold with my thumb and three fingers.
Kimber pistols are not cheap. He stole the Ultra II he has for $750 used. The MSRP is right at $1200 for the Ultra II without the night sights.
