I did not mean to start a war of words here. I love the gun and won't sell it but like I said, I have not had one problem with it. I just wanted to know the value. I carry an XD 40 sub and am now a Springfield guy. If I could conceal my 1911 better I would carry it and trust it to protect my son. That to me is the ultimate compliment. I also think mine is an early manufacture, it is stamped nm1435. Am I right?

Come on JD, you have to have seen this picture before.

I have seen it plenty of times Brother, but I had to clarify that we were talking Kimber and not Springfield. Kimber has had their ups and downs, but have righted their ship long ago - Springfield recently had troubles, but have made efforts to make amends with the gun buying public.

Yes, yes...we've all seen this picture and how you sold it for eleven dollars at a flea market to some guy named Watto who wanted to trade his pod racer for it claiming it was the fastest ever built, but you opted for the cash...yes, we all know the story by now...

Sometimes I wake up from a deep sleep thinking, "That was messed up."

There is a trend that you may have noticed. When the 3 of us coalesce on a thread, bad things happen to that thread.
