    OK gentleman. I bought a Kimber "Heritage Edition" last fall for a very reasonable price off of Gun Broker. The reason probably was poor photos and it showed some holster wear. (If you are going to sell something in an Internet auction take good pictures or find someone that can for you.)

    This pistol will shoot 1" to 1 1/2" at 25 yards with Federal HST 230 grain JHP that is with my soon to be 60 years old eyes. It is also very reliable but someone else already broke it in.

    This gun deserve to be refinished and I was leaning toward hard chrome based on my experience in industry use.

    So for Metaloy and Tripp come highly recommended.

    I haven't figured out how to start a post or to post good pictures but I will find someone that can show me and will do a before and after of the pistol.

    Any more ideas on who to send it?
