    and another addiction begins! :wavey:

    I went for the Kimber Super Carry Custom, since it had most of the features I was looking for, and could get it pretty fast. One day I might go for a more truly custom pistol, but for now, I can't wait to get the Kimber out to the range.

    Oh, and one more damn GT forum to have to check all the time! Oh, well. :supergrin:

    Very nice.

    I was thinking of getting one of those, but I'm not real big on aluminum frames.

    They look beautiful, however. :)

    I'm still curious on whether or not it has the Schwartz safety since the name doesn't have a " II" after it like the other pistols.

    Congrats on a good looking 1911.

    I believe these are series 70, and they are beautiful! Local dealership has a pro model in stock for 1400, if I had the extra cash it would be mine.
