I'm so glad I don't live in commiefornia. You'll love that pistol once you finally get to shoot it. I've got a Pro Carry II and love it.

as far as the sights, I have never seen a handgun sight with no dots, bars or goal posts....Just plain ol' black metal U rear sight with a black post.
Oops...sorry...thought you were talking about Kimber being legendary. No doubt they make great pistols, but not quite legendary yet.

One of my favorite guns in the world! I have a Kimber 25th Aniversary Edition Custom and it is a fantastic carry piece. VERY accurate and 100% reliable.

I picked her up and already changed her dress to a more appropriate Hogue size wrap around. I'll post some pics later.

The grips are the first thing you can do to make her your own! Looking forward to the photos.

Pics, pics, pics! Maybe you could put some liquid paper on the front post?

I've posted this before but all of my 1911s are basically setup the same way: a wide notch plain black rear and a single white dot front. Rather than use paint or nail polish, I spent $10 and bought a pack of Nitesiter stick-on dots (8 in a package).

No, I really don't care that these dots glow when you charge them with light, they just make it easy to have a nice bright white dot on a formerly all black front post. My new long slide shot very low and I had to jack up the rear sight a bunch so I corrected that last night. I ground down and reshaped the front post, blued it, and applied a Nitesiter dot.

I'll be zeroing it in this week as we are finally going to have another pin match weekend after next. As far as rubber grips, I have always preferred the Pachmayr wrap-arounds to the Hogue - just personal preference...

Sounds like your gun dealer would make an excellent drug dealer,- with the way he teases his customers. Will there be pics?

Here she is...


I was told that for some reason the finish on this model likes to rust. Is that true? The only reason I ask is I am going to be duracoating my 1100 receiver when it warms up. Should I duracoat the Kimber as well?
