    New Kimber Custom II

    So, I added a new Kimber Custom II.. My carry gun is a CDP Pro and have a Wilson on order, but needed something for Gunsite...

    I saw it at the shop last week, so I picked it up for a little over $800 with tax..

    Went to the range that day....

    Put 350 rounds of WWB 230 grain through it with one early slide lock with one round left in the Wilson ETM - my fault.. The other 7 magazines were 47D's (I never use the Kimber mags). They all worked with out issue, as usual.

    I then put 50 rounds of Ranger T-series (not SXT) 230 grain standard pressure without incident.

    Then, I put another 50 of Federal HST 230 grain standard loads through it and again, no problems.

    So, another good NIB Kimber! I really want to stop buying these and stick with Wilson, but it's hard when they're right there at the shop and no one here really stocks new Wilsons. Now and then you'll see a new one, but most are used.

    After Gunsite it's going off for checkering, slide serrations and refinishing. The only thing I've done so far is ordered a Magwell, tritium fixed sights and put some Starburst grips on it (I wish I could pop out the Wilson logo and put a Kimber logo in there..)

    So far, so good!

    Sorry for the quick shot, I'll get a better one soon...

    Nice Kimber Jonathan and those grips really set it off. Make sure you give a detailed report on your experience at Gunsite. I've always been interested in taking classes there and one of these days I just need to break down and do it.

    Dang that's nice!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    Thanks.. I sure will. I can't wait to go and can't imagine the knowledge I'll come back with. I'm a photographer and any time I go to a convention or seminar, I have to tell myself I don't know everything and I can continue to learn. I'll be sure to do the same for Gunsite!

    Also, I'm picking up an SIS Pro today. They just got one in at our local shop and I can't resist. They're holding it so I can grab it this afternoon!
