Question for those that own/carry Kimbers
After I get a Kahr PM9 I will start saving for a 1911 for ccw. I like the Eclipse, Tactical, and the Custom II.
Eclipse: I love the finish and the fact that there is no ambi saftey. Steel frame would make range sessions more fun and follow up shots would be quicker.
Tactical: Also a cool finish, light weight would make carrying easier, but ambi saftey would print more, Extended mag well makes reloads easier.
Custom II: The price is better.
My question(s) to you guys that own and or carry Kimbers or any 1911s for that matter is: How much easier is it to carry a 4" model iwb over a 5"? What is the difference between the barrels with and without the bushings and how do the perform? Do you recommend the steel or aluminum frames? Also do you put thinner grips on your carry 1911s and if so how much difference do they make for carry.
