    Okay guys, here is my latest acquisition, a Kimber Classic Royal. It is in superb condition. The previous owner installed a Kimber ambi-safety.

    The serial numbers are only one digit off (the next to last number on the Gold Match is a "0" and the Royal is a "2"). I am now at Kimber #16 and 1911 #79.

    Just 79. I am hoping that my SR1911 will arrive soon to make it 80.

    One of these days Greg. There are too may other 1911s I want right now. Of course, If I ever sell my KAC SR-25 Mk11 Mod 0 for what I am asking, I would definitely buy me a nice custom 1911.

    Looks pretty good! I'm not the biggest Kimber fan, but I do like the looks of the blued ones. :thumb:

    Thanks Brian. I called Kimber today to have them check the date of manufacturing and all they could tell me was that it was made in 1998 or prior. It is not very often that you can find a pistol that age in like new condition.

    Looks great James, what is the serial number. I'll check my Royal and see how close it is, might be able to get close with a build date.
