of all the kimber bashing i have seen on this site, you are the first person to actually give any significant reason for their bashing.
Then you should probably read more around here.
I am fairly vocal on the ****-poor quality of Kimber, and relayed my personal experiences with the Kimber in my signature below. But I don't feel the need to rehash the same story on each and every post I make about Kimber. Perhaps others feel the same.
In all honesty, if Kimber didn;t price their pistols up where quality 1911's reign, they wouldn't catch half the flack. When you can buy a far superior 1911 at the same price or for a couple hundred more... why even consider a Kimber? Jeez, you can buy Les baer and Ed Brown's for about the same money...
