I am a long time Glock enthusiast and also have a soft spot for quality wheel guns. About a year ago I bought a Springfield Mil Spec (made in Brazil) as my first 1911. I have a CMP Springfield M1 Garand and I loved the look of the 1911 with its wood cross-cannon grips next to the rifle. Once I began to shoot it and got over the pleasant aesthetics, I never could warm up to the Mil Spec. I sold it. Compared to my Glock 21 I just couldn't shoot well with it. I wanted to like it, but it just didn't take. I now have an opportunity to buy a Kimber Desert Warrior. Its a very good deal. Its like new. $700. I have shot a friend's Kimber TLE/RL2. Its a fine pistol as far as I can tell after just a few mags through it. Any info regarding the Kimber would be appreciated for a 1911 newb. http://www.kimberamerica.com/1911/custom-ii/desertwarrior Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
