    I own numerous Kimbers, my Pro TLE II is the best one of the group. You can get it blued (Well, Kimpro) or in stainless and with a rail, if you so prefer (Mine has the rail)

    For the money, I'd go with the Kimber Pro TLE. All of the features most are looking for and they are great guns as well.

    Thanks. It was $1200. That's pretty close to $900... :whistling:

    {Personally, I'd go for one of these - forged steel slide and frame. All I want from a 1911 is a base for my gun - I don't expect, or even want, some commercial product with a cool name and somebody else's idea of the right modifications.

    For $900, I can refinish it, put on the sights, safety, grip safety, grips, trigger, etc. that I want and have money left over.
