Yesterday, with joyful faces and proud hearts, we welcomed into the family yet another 1911.
I would like to introduce you to Kimber Ultra CDP. He eats (and spits out) .45s. After a thorough functionality check he went on his first visit to the range.
He performed flawlessly. The best you could ever expect from a 1911 which makes him much cherished by his mother.
After returning home he got the cleaning of his lifetime (probably) and it was found he was a little dehydrated, but he's back at full performance and eagerly awaiting his next visit out to the range. He will also accompany his mother everywhere and provide her protection (what a devoted boy).
He's going to get a few upgrades in the next couple of weeks. I'm going to change out his plastic mainspring housing for a steel one. He also needs a new slide stop plunger. Eventually he'll get slim-line rubber grips and perhaps a few more magazines. His tritium night sights are a little on the dull side and sooner than later he'll get a fresh pair of those, but other than that he's in perfect, flawless working order. He may also trade that ambi-safey for a traditional one but that's low on the list of changes. I'm sure he'll be happy and well cared for in his new home.
He got to meet another new member of the family last night but I'll let the proud father introduce you to him, and we are all eagerly awaiting the call that says the Sig is in the state and ready to come home.
