    Finally my new Kimber Eclipse arrives

    Finally after almost 4 months my Kimber Eclipse Target 2 arrived
    I actually got it almost 2 weeks ago but i wanted to wait & post pic's when i got the new Carbon Fiber grip's & wide-mouth mag-well here & installed. I love this pistol as much as the Ultra Carry already
    In fact during the first range session with it we were hitting powerade bottles at 50 yards & just like the UC2 it shoots smooth as butter

    Nice. I like those grips on that gun. I might have to get some for my eclipse now.

    Beautiful gun. If I were ever to buy another Kimber, the Eclipse would be the one.

    Thanks for all the nice replies everyone
    I also wanted to say that yes iam still quite new to 1911's & among many gun shop's (yes Kimber too) they all made it out to be a big deal about putting the new mainspring housing in. I could not get straight answers from anyone on price or time to install. Iam sorry it just didnt seem like that big of a task to me. I was even willing to drive 100+ miles if someone would just say yes i can get it done for you in an hour or two & i could just take the pistol home. The only person that said they would (todd @ creative customs) who when i got down there to get the 1911 fixed i was going to leave my wife's PM9 there to get the slide "ceracoated" as well, but when i called him at 1 pm friday & left a message (which he still has'nt called back). I started burning up the internet searching for someone to put it in on saturday. Finally a gun shop in Auburn "williams" actually told me its not a very big deal & walked me through the steps on the phone (which i double checked on-line for like an hour so i had some pic's) & i finally decided to do it myself & like magic only 20 minutes later the new mainspring/mag-well combo was installed
    So people dont let the shops trick you its NOT that hard

    And yes, You Tube has vids on mainspring swops.
