Default .45 ACP Kimber Stainless TLE II - Range Report

I asked you guys a while back about which stainless 1911 I should get (http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f57/stainless-1911-a-37937/) and I got great help from everyone. Well, I picked up a Kimber Stainless TLE II; its the same as the custom stainless II but comes with grip strap checkering and night sights. The first thing I did it to replace the Mag with a Wilson Combat and the grips with double diamond Walnut.

Rubber grips on a $1000 gun, for shame!

Here she is:




I finally got to the range on Thursday and I put exactly 372 rounds through it in a few hours. I have went through 4 fifty round boxes of 230gr. Magtech FMJ and 2 fifty round boxes of 230gr. Federal FMJ. Finally I went through 72 rounds (8 mags loaded 8+1 each) of my carry load 230gr. Hordady TAP +P to test for relaibility after I went through all of the FMJs.


IT NEVER JAMMED!!
No problems at all



Here is the last target of the Hornady TAP +P load at 17 yards:




Thanks for the help everyone

Congratulations and that's good shooting too. It looks like a good match to me.

I've had one jam on any 1911 I've shot and it was the magazine.

Looking good are you're a good shot!
