    New Kimbers

    I was wondering around kimbers site tonight and noticed they have a new line up to offer folks who are interested in the "laser" interest! I really like how they finally recessed the slide stop pin so the laser beam can clear it.

    Heres the link if any one is curious Kimber - Continuing The Legacy

    Are those CT grips from the Crimson Carry Family actual rosewood (partially)? They look good.

    No lasers for me, but I love my Kimbers.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I have had mixed luck with a Kimber - and a buddy I know had 3 of them (even a Series I), and none would work reliably with JHP.

    I almost bought a SIS model last month, but got an MC Operator instead (Springfield).

    Kimbers can be a crap shoot sometimes....

    The "wood" and "carbon fiber" Crimson Trace grips are both actually printed plastic and look quite cheap in person.

    Thanks for the input.

    Yuck, that's sounds terrible looking. I knew they had some plastic 'rosewood look alike' grips before but thought maybe they improved them in this offering. That's a good way to ruin an otherwise good looking pistol.

    I think it is a beautiful gun. And I love my Ultra Carry with the "cheap" lasergrips.

    I'm glad you like your Ultra. Got any closeup photos of those grips?

    I looked at a Kimber Covert because of the set up that already included the Crimson Lasers and b/c I love 1911's, but decided against it after reading some reliablilty issues towards Kimber over at M1911.org
