    When I first saw the Kimber SSLW 9mm at my local dealer, I had to hold it. My first impression was that it felt like part of it was missing because it was so light and the price seemed very low for a Kimber. I went home and immediately looked into it online. The alloy lower was discussed...

    I swapped some grips around today. Took the Labyrinth grips off the Colt and put them on the TLE Pro TFS.

    A gentleman posted a Kimber Super Carry Pro for sale in another thread and it reminded me of a project I've thought about off and on for some time. I did some research on this over time but didn't find anything conclusive one way or the other. So I thought I'd ask this august group.... Kimber...

    I remember seeing this gun when I was in high school and wishing I could buy one. It’s always stuck with me. I don’t have any Kimbers in my personal collection but when I found this one, I had to buy it for old times sake. I will probably just shoot the crap out of it, I might even send it to...

    All, A lot of what I see and read out there on Kimber is heavily tilted toward the negative. Are they really that badly made? The machining looks solid and I have to believe any new piece needs a period of break in, right? And up front I realize that Wilson, Les Baer, Ed Brown, Nighthawk, as...

    So a little while ago I picked up a very ugly Kimber in a trade. The previous owner had sprayed the whole thing with Wheeler ceramicoat and it was chipping and scratching. The before pic actually looks twice as good as it did in person. In addition to the horrible finish, the grip safety was...

    Does anyone have one of these? It has a full size Government grip frame & a 3" BBL. "The Kimber Ultra+ CDP (Custom Defensive Pistol) II from the Kimber Custom Shop is for those who find they are better suited having a 1911 with a short slide assembly while retaining the full-sized grip. The...
