Default should i make this kimber trade?

would like to know if anyone has experience with the pro II? I have no experience with kimbers and have heard mixed reviews. I would be trading my sig 1911 stx for a Kimber eclipse pro 2, he said it has a bull barrel steel frame night sights extra grips one blued 7 round mag one stainless 8 round mag . The kimber has meprolight night sights . Original box paperwork, SOG knife and a bianchi holster.

He said it has 100 rounds thru it which is the same as my stx. Just want everyones opinion.

Also would like to know if Kimbers warranty is any good. Would I be covered through their warranty even though I am the second owner.

The Eclipse series pistols are good ones. Why do you want to trade?

If its that great, why was trying to trade for yours? I personally think model for model Sig makes a better pistol

I would NEVER trade a Sig for a kimber.

Kimber has a 1 year warranty.

You decide.

Don't do it, I agree with Cane. Plus i think something got to be wrong with the gun if all those extras are added.

Thanks for the responses. I will not be trading the sig. Kimbers one year warranty is horrible, Im glade I talk with you all first.

Thanks again,

Getem
