    An original series Stainless Custom (the base gun in stainless). Great shooter the way it is, or a great platform to build to your own specs. If you want a real honey, find an original series Gold Combat. WOW

    If I were to go Kimber, I'd probably go with a TLE, of all the Kimber models, that one has all the options I want. A close second is the SIS, but I can't stand the cocking serrations.

    I agree whole heartedly with the suggestion for stainless. Although my Kimber Stainless Series I is a compact, and not a full size, I figure my vote for the rigid stainless platform should count for something anyway. Stick to stainless, you won't be sorry.

    I'd go for a series 1 pro carry with the internal extractor
