Any under 4" 1911 Colt Kimber what ever, you better be ready for some FTF problems in around 500+ shot. Also watch the recoil spring Assys. have a extra to install as they will sure need replacing.
The small .45 1911s are tricky about how well they shoot JHPs the flat nosed ones will not work, they won't feed well or at all.
I did get my Kimber Ultra Carry II to shoot well after around 1000rds and a new recoil spring Assy. but it was a ejector breaker.
Kimber had redesigned the ejector, but I just traded it off for a fullsized Colt .45.
