Default Thinking about buying a kimber eclipse custom 2

I know id change out a few things on it, but is this gun worth buying. I got a 1911 sig and love it but I want another 1911 without the rail. Is this gun flawed or will it be the best thing for me to buy

What do you want to change about it? Odds are that you can a different model with everything you want already on the pistol.

Ya buddy, that will be a great gift to yourself. I think those were S70 Colts with compensators on them. Ive heard that Colt has top notch CS
