I have been dragging my feet for about the past year on purchasing a 1911 and am really looking at the Kimbers. Mainly it would be a range gun with some home defense as well, but not an EDC. I have looked at both the TLE and the Eclipse, both are nice and have nice features included. Any owner inspired opinions out there?
Also Eclipse owners I have a questions concerning the finish of the gun; how does the finish along the top of the slide hold up after usage? I love that finish on that gun, but would hate to spend in excess of $1000 to have the finish ruined by firing the weapon.
