    This is just the way I have always envisioned one. :cool: Those grips look ok on it, but that's what came with it and I'll most definately be swapping them out for something else. Probably black.

    I'm not a big 1911 fan, but I admit the SIS is the one I'd most like to get (if I ever got another 1911). With the NYS 7 limit, a SIS could be in my future.

    How much do they cost?

    Kimber discontiued them a few years ago. They can be found on GB. Most likely run $1000+

    I remember when these first came out. I love the looks and the story behind this gun. Good stuff!

    I was wondering how a bead blasted stainless would look. Love it!

    For some reason when Chuck posted a pic on Addicts, I had a gut feeling it was yours. Another nice one!!! Whats coming back next from the neighborhood?

    Nice!

    From what I hear, Kimber discontinued the SIS.
    (ETA: Ooops! Glock2740 beat me to it.)

    Greg, it kind of reminds me of the stainless Beretta you had/have.
