If you're spending that kind of money, definitely go with the target sights!

I have both weapons, and the Baer is the best, but the Kimber is great for 500$$ less.

I believe it has been stated many times here, the weapon is only as good as the shooter.

Kimbers are not in the same league as Baers. Get the Baer for sure.

1. Baer 1911 Ultimate Master Combat Pistol, 5" Model, .45 ACP
2. Baer 1911 Premier II, 5" Model, .45 ACP
3. Baer 1911 Premier II Super-Tac, .45 ACP
4. Baer 1911 Concept I, .45 ACP
5. Ed Brown's Classic Custom, .45 ACP

Also, should I get a BoMar or combat sights?
If you want a "black" gun go with the Premiere II Super-Tac. It has a blacked out barrel and barrel bushing.

Default SuperMatch II

Been scouting too for gun similar to Kimber supermatch. Ed Brown classic or Les Baer Concept iii/iv are not approved here in california.

any more suggestion that looks like supermatch ii for other brands?

appreciate it.

If you are going to spend that much cash I'd go with a NightHawk Dominator.

Nighthawk Dominator

Default nighthawk dominator..

nice looking gun.. really!

unfortunately that is not approved for sale in Cali also..

I guess i have to settle for Kimber SM2.. well, it's a pretty nice looking and good shooting gun too at least based from what ive been reading....

While I love my Kimber Les Bear is a few steps above the Kimber.

Nighthawk is UBER COOL DROOL RANGE GUN. If I could afford a Nighthawk I would never carry it as a EDC. the thought of using a $2k gun to shoot some dirtbag makes me shutter.
