    If so how do you like it?

    I bought my first Kimber and not long after I had it the finish started coming off of it. Not too bad but enough to bug me. Is that normal for Kimbers?

    Many years ago, I picked up a Kimber Rimfire 5", all silver for my son and daughter to learn the 1911 platform. I was building a few 1911's and 2011's. I was mainly doing the grips for the SV/STI's. I was doing a good bit of work for Clark Custom Guns and I sent my Kimber down to Clark for some...

    I picked up a Kimber Stainless Target II 10mm about 10 years ago from Gunbroker. It has snakeskin treatment on the front strap and an Ed Brown snakeskin main spring. My question is, who all does the snakeskin treatment? Does Ed Brown do this treatment on other manufacturers guns, matching...

    Thanks for having me! I got started with a decommissioned Colt M45A1, Colt M1911A1 and then a Kimber LAPD SWAT Custom II that I picked up from Larry Vickers personal collection. I have a few unique guns and started really getting into the collecting side over the last couple of years. I’m a...

    I’m new to the forum and relatively new to 1911’s. I got started with a decommissioned Colt M45A1 and it spiraled out of control from there. I thought I’d share one of the more unique guns in my collection. Kimber LAPD SWAT Custom II. Serial number KLA114421. It was from Larry Vickers’ personal...

    About two years ago I bought a 10mm Kimber Custom II GFO for my woods carry pistol. It shot well, for me, but had a terrible problem with FTFs (failure to feed). I tweaked the extractor tension down and that mostly eliminated the problem, but it still occasionally occurred. Took it to my 1911...

    I'm on the fence between 2 options, hoping for fair and reasonable advice without getting blasted for my question. I have a Kimber Team Match II, and I believe it's a 2017 version, so one of the newest ones. I bought this before I get involved in this site, and honestly didn't know the...

    I compared my 1911 to a friends Kimber Custom and mine was a lot tighter on all points. Mine is a Ruger. I know most here don't care for Ruger's 1911, but mine is really tight. A gun shop near me was shocked when mine mic'ed almost the same in tightness as a WC they have in stock. I know...

    I know, I know, I’m an addict. The local gun store had an older, all original, Kimber Classic (Series 1 ?) It’s a series 70. No Schwartz firing pin safety. It’s old, late 90’s, carbon fiber CMC trigger and plastic MSH. The blueing has turned a plum color. Im thinking I can turn it into a...

    A friend lost her husband awhile back, and asked if I would tell her how much his gun is worth, as she needs to sell it. I am not into Kimber, 40S&W, or 10mm. So I thought I would ask here to give her an idea of what it is worth. It is a Gold Match with both a 10mm barrel and a 40S&W barrel...

    Are they cast or forged. ? Their website isnt clear on it.
  13. General 1911 talk
    The reason I ask this; is many times I have read small comments here and there on these pistols about negatives. I could not find any specifics, just comments here and there. So there has to be real reasons some say this. First I know some of it is a kind of snobbery, but not all. Some have...

    I was at Cabelas and saw a kimber camp guard in 10mm. I like 10mm and love the bobtail. Anyone have experience with this or able to reccomend something at a similar price point? I'm open to shooting 45 super as well, but do like the bobtail. I plan on carrying under a jacket as well as taking...

    Hey 1911 Addicts, Potential new 1911 owner here.. I was excited about this offer for one of my pistols until I started researching more.. I was bummed to find all the issues people were saying they have. Are they really that hit or miss? I would be carrying this pistol as my every day carry...

    What’s going on with Kimber? I can’t find any new limbers in the gun shops in my area.

    How about this!!!

    I recently picked up my first set of VZ G10 grips (It looks like VZ is phasing out officer size grips and has almost all of them marked down to $35, so get on that if you've been waiting). My old half-checkered stocks didn't give me any traction in the area where my support hand grips the gun...
