This one was built by Halston Custom to Bullseye specs. Slide fitted to frame, Kart NM barrel and bushing and a few other tunings and fittings. Shoots 2" groups out of a Ransom rest at 50 yards with WWB. Stippling has since been blued to match the gun.

The other Stainless Pro Carry pictured above has night sights. This one doesn't. Hoping to make a good project gun with it by Chuck Rogers.

Chuck did the recessed crown job on the Pro Carry with night sights. Another grip swap. I had to see how the Raptor grips would look on the Pro Carry. I actually left these two like that for awhile. Those Hogue grips really felt great on the Pro Raptor.

Thanks
Well, there's some pics for you. The only one with any custom work is the Custom Target II. I had John Vincent work his magic on it. Great shooting gun. And then Chuck Rogers recessed crowned the barrel in one of my Pro Carry's. Other than that, all of my Kimbers have shot everything I've fed them. My break in for them, is to oil the crap out of them, remove the mag and rack the slide about 100-200 times, then run 300-350 rounds of factory FMJ through them. I also only use Wilson and Tripp Cobra mags. I'm not a big fan of the Kimber factory mags.

Now sir, if you are gonna rub your nice stable of 1911's in our noses, I expect you to stop by Introductions and tell us a little something about yourself and you obvious interests.
