    Got me a Kimber SIS compact!

    Hot damn this thing is sweet! My experiences with 3" barrel 1911s has been hit or miss. This is a definate hit. Super acurate out of the box, ultra compact, just a great piece. Enjoy the gun porn!

    Actually, that is all he has left, he wanted to put a hundred down but.......

    JK, That is a sweet piece. I didn't even know the SIS Kimber existed. What is the story about the SIS?

    Kimber SIS...

    From website:

    In 2007 a new pistol was added to the Kimber's extensive line of 1911 pattern pistols. Designed and commissioned by LAPD's Special Investigation Section (SIS). The SIS is an elite undercover unit that specializes in working violent and dangerous criminals. After design and commission the LAPD's SIS agreed to allow Kimber to offer the Kimber SIS Custom to the public.

    The gun has a number of features designed specifically for this elite unit, including: flat top slide, ambi safety, specially designed Meprolight Night Sight (including abrupt angle on rear sight for one hand cocking if required), KimPro Finish on entire gun, front strap checkering, full size all steel frame, SIS Cocking Serrations on slide, Service Carry Treatment to remove all sharp edges, and custom designed laminate grips. All SIS guns have a steel frame, and were designed to the specific requirements of the Los Angeles Special Investigation Section.

    My local shop had one priced about $1150. Had a chance to handle it, nice gun!

    What a "boat anchor"!

    But I'll tell you what... I'll take the thing off your hands!

    Aw, I can't even say that with a straight face... darn it, it's very nice! Congratulations.

    I love it so far. I put 500 rounds through it today without a single hickup. I was drawn to the compact frame, melt job, custom trigger setup, night sights, and one handed cocking feature (hope it never come into play, but it's invaluable if you need it)

    Sounds like Kimber solved the 3" 1911 problems. That's a sweet looking pistola! Keep us posted about any problems (or not).

    Congratulations on the new gun.

    It was a short barrel Kimber, Ultra Carry, that years ago converted both me and my former shooting buddy from Sig DAs (P226 me and P228 him) to become complete and utter 1911/Single Action nuts.

    Beautiful. :)

    I don't see the griping about Kimber's short guns that I do other brands. I really like the way that gun looks, the carry bevel, dark finish, really a serious carry gun. If Kimber has LAPD's SWAT and SIS, they must doing something right. Wonder if the issue SIS guns have the Series II safety?
