I was at a restaurant Saturday and noticed a nice gun shop next door. Just snooping around my eyes fell on this (except with nice woodgrain grips). Oh my Lord. :shock:

This thing jumped into my hand. What a beautifully built thing this is.

Awesome, gunman! Tell us a little more about it! Reliability? Accuracy? Recoil?

I have shot somewhere around 600 rounds through it. The first 200 rounds (Kimber's recommended break-in period) there were 3 or 4 failures of the last round to go completely into battery. A quick smack of the slide seated the bullet. Those have been the only failures I have experienced. The recoil is not near as bad as you would think in a 1911 this small. It has a difference recoil spring set up than a standard 1911, a dual coil job, and a ramped and flared up front barrel (no bushing). It is more accurate than I am. If I am having a good day, I can do really well with it. It has become my primary CCW, if that tells you how much I like it.

Man I was kinda hoping for my own. But I'll share I guess. :p

Here it is:



It is not too hard to strip. You got to have that little piece of "L" shaped wire to hold the recoil spring in, and because of the extra safety (firing pin block) on the "two" series Kimbers, you can't depress the grip safety when putting it back together, which makes it somewhat tricky! But, it is easy enough to get the hang of it after a time or two. I always give it the "pencil test" after field stripping. Put a pencil in the barrel eraser end first and pull the trigger. If it goes flying across the room, you put it back right. If not, you didn't!

Does that have to be done or do you do it to make putting it back together easier?

That's weird no bushing. That's just on the small ones?

It can be done without it, but it is much easier with the "tool". It is included with the gun when bought new. Yeah, as far as I know, only the Officers model size guns are made with no bushing.

In an el-cheapo Triple K holster I bought from Sportsman's Guide for somewhere around 20 bucks. Works good enough. Here's a pic of it:

Thanks. I like Sportsman's Guide, I've only gotten ammo from there before though.

I need to make some extra room inside my waistband and consider an IWB.

Oh yeah and I need to figure out a way to buy the gun also... :shock:
