    Shortly, I am going to pick up my Kimber SS Pro Raptor II that I have on lay-a-way. Its a birthday present from my wife and 2 sons (but they dont know it yet).;) Anyway, just wanted to get a show of hands on who owns Kimbers. I also own a Kimber Ulra Carry II which is one of my EDC. Just love 1911's ...:D

    Kimber Covert is a SA-WHEAT pistol.... Is it a carry pistol or strictly home defense?

    It is pretty much the same as the Ultra II Carry, (see Kimber chart for specifics).
    Sweet; pretty much. Light Alloy Frame, Meprolight night sites and Crimson Trace Laser grips.


    This shot is after a lawn mowing session this last summer, a bit dirty.

    It's for carry, HD, plinking, pests AND BBQ's :)

    I have a few shots in the dirty pics thread.

    I need to still add a crimson laser on my ultra carry. I have them on all my carry pistols.

    I have several Kimbers and love them. I recently picked up a pro carry II stainless and got a beautiful set of grips from Browns Custom Grips. I am having some trijicon sights put on as well. I will post some pics when I get it back. This stuff can be addicting!!!

    Love my Kimber TLE 2. Well over 1000 rounds and never a single problem. I don't particularly care for the factory rubber grips, so I ordered a set of African Blackwood slim grips from Sarge (Google Sarges grips) with his daily carry pattern stippling. .

    Recently purchased a Kimber Stainless II .45acp about 5 months ago and it has been an absolute dream at the range. Over 900rds put through it without a single problem.

    Got a Kimber custom TLE/RL 2. I love it because of how accurate it is. My estimated round count on it is somewhere in the 2000-2500 ish range. At least I think. Never any problems due to the gun although did have one do to some bad winchester ammo. The case was about 1/8" too long and it wouldn't go into battery. Only so much can be said for that. Just ordered some new springs because if I remember right the recoil spring is suppose to be replaced around 2500 rounds.

    10 year old cdp custom II. Thousands of rounds (shot local competition) no issue that wasn't fixed with new magazine springs. My preferred carry piece. And my wifes favorite firearm. Has hand engraved numbers under the slide.

    I've got three. I have a Pro TLE/RL, Ultra CDP II and a Tactical Entry II.

    Never had a problem with any of them. I carry the CDP concealed daily and I used Pro TLE/RL for SWAT for years. Now I carry the Tactical Entry on patrol.

    I purchased a full size Kimber Stainless II .45acp about six months ago and absolutely love it. Almost 1,000rds through it so far without a single hick-up or feed problem. Highly recommended..
