kimber 1911
 
Can anyone help me with some real reviews of kimber 1911 pistols. Im looking to purchase one and id like some feedback from actual owners if possible.

I have a stigma against Kimber.

With so many other 1911s having a limited lifetime warranty, why would Kimber offer only one year limited?
And with the one year limited, why do Kimbers cost as much (if not more) than the others?

I have an Ultra Covert II and have never had one issue with it. Although I don't put rounds through it that much it has proven to be a quality gun in shooting and handling. Outside of something like a Les Baer custom 1911, Kimbers seem to be one of the top mass produced guns. I hope this helps ya some.

My Kimber Raptor..Very nice fit and finish. Only 150rnds through it, but so far 100% reliable. Too heavy when loaded to be an EDC gun for me, so its a safe/range queen. Beautiful gun, hits where i aim it. I think the weight helps reduce recoil, so fun range gun....

Have a cdp custom II that has tens of thousands of rounds threw it. No problems.

1 year warranty, a CS dept that has a reputation for being a-holes, with plastic mainspring housings tossed in as a kicker, no thanks. If they spent half as much on a better warranty & building a CS dept as they do on glossy magazine ads, they would unstoppable, & deservedly so. YMMV.

i like the looks of the Kimbers. very nice looking pistols. but i have the same issue as Dan_Fl does, high price and only a one year warranty. for the most part, most Kimber owners seem pretty satisfied with theirs. but there are some that have problems and i have heard some horror stories of dealing with their CS department.

with all that said, would i own a Kimber? not a new one. but a used one, that was already out of it's warranty period and i was agreeable with the price, maybe.

I cant speak for their customer service. But for what you pay for a Kimber, You would think they would come with 2 mags...
