    My name is John and I am a Kimber-holic...

    My EDC is a Pro Carry.

    My second-finest pistol is a Royal Carry. Custom Shop. Only 300 made. Beyond beautiful.

    jrs93accord-The fourth pic down you posted-which model is that? Reminds me of a Colt Combat Commander. I like it! But, I saw this statement on Bud's and wasn't too turned on by it...

    "Kimber aluminum frames have been tested to over 20,000 rounds without evidence of meaningful wear."

    20K rounds? It would take me a long time to go through that many but something about that statement bothered me.​

    It is a customized Custom II that was inspired by the MEUSOC 1911. The grips are one of ten sets made by VZ Grips. The previous owner had the mods done. I have thought about having a Dawson rail installed, but not totally sold on the idea just yet.

    Ive had am Eclipse, TLE, and Warrior in the past. I now have a Series I Custom Compact. He can count me among those who like Kimber if they are under the price of what I can get a Baer for.

    I'm totally blown away at the cost of 1911's these days. The last one I bought was about $450...a SA model if I recall. My first, a Colt Mk IV Series 70 was $159.95. Yep, I know, that was decades ago, along about 1973. Most I've looked at today are in the average range of $1100-1800 now be it Colt or Kimber. I just can't go there.

    Very impressive collection. I would love to have a couple of those. How are the compact versions, as far as recoil goes?

    When it comes to Kimber, you can't beat the Super Match. :supergrin:
