I found a Kimber at a local gun shop today for 550. It's used of course...and for some reason the person heavily spray painted the slide in Green Pain...so much so Kimber hardly shows on it...and the same with the custom. I'm going to look it over again Monday....I'm hoping it's cheap because of the crappy paint job on it. If that is the case I'll buy it for a steal and get it refinished. Simple as pie. What do you guys think? Is it possible the Kimber is a rusted hunk of metal under all that paint of the slide? The handle is good..so I'm not sure. Going to take some pics of it I hope later....if It's nice I might convince my brother to buy it for the family.
