What negative experience(s) with Kimber have you personally had to taint you?
My question was for the OP. I should have been more specific. You done well, pilgrim.The frontstrap checkering on the Eclipse10mm is stock. I'm pretty agnostic when it comes to trigger length, but I do like the "feeeeeeel" and looks of a flat trigger. In my mind, a flat trigger and Stan Chen Magwell kinda elevates a Kimber from a "Chevrolet" to a "Cadillac."
I bought both of these guns as dogs that wouldn't run from their previous owners. The primary issue with both was a MIM extractor that just wouldn't hold tension. I replaced both with EGW and they have been reliable ever since.
When I tried to tension the original extractor on the Pro Carry HD II, I got this . . . . .
An easy cheap fix on a gun I got a couple hundred dollars below reasonable market price.

Again, my question was directed at the OP, who has not responded. My point is comments from the internet are not personal experience.I owned a total of five.
One ran great out of the box, and one was very rough in functioning; but did function.
The other three sucked, and sending them back to kimber didn’t get them straight.
All but one are long gone years ago…
