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.
Neither is the springfield micro compact at 1500.but i own one carry it alot
For a carry gun if a 1911 poly commander that could weight in at 22 oz and was dependable then I may own one but instead I know I can get a good lite reliable CC with my kahrs. If I want a 38oz handgun atleast allow it to shot a cartridge that can handle a large dangerous game. So a 38oz 1911 is almost worthless as I will not carry it. Just a house gun / fun gun.
Oh , You can't be a limp wristed weakling and make a lite weight heavier recoiling pistol function reliably. Any sissy can make a heavy pistol function. hehe
