It was kimber in the end

THANKS FOR ALL THE ADVICE AND INFORMATION in my other thread :hand10:

well after looking at 20 or so 1911's I came home with a kimber custom II... I like the sights better than the standard SA sights. I could have gotten a bare bones GI 1911, and modded it, but I did not want to wait a week for this and then a week for that. So I bought the kimber instead. No factory add-ons.

got a good deal on it + got almost the high side of what I wanted for my trades. sucks it only comes with 1 mag, and a 7 rounder at that. A WC 8 rounder fits ok for me though.

Put 100rds through it today and felt good. Now to get a holester....:banana:

Nice choice Bags! You really can't go wrong with a Custom II, they are alot of gun for the money.

There is a reason Kimber only sends one mag with their gun's! because the mag's suck! you have the right mag in it now with the Wilson.

Nice gun. I bought three WC 47D mags from Brownell's and replaced the slam pad on one with the low profile steel pad, that's the primary mag for carry. The steel adds weight so you get a drop free mag release and it doesn't stick out as much as the std. pads - less printing. CMC Shooting Stars are good too but I've gotten to the point where I prefer nylon followers in all my mags, the CMCs are now my range only mags.

Give us a range report!
