I own 3 Kimber's and know other people that own them. All have been flawless. Don't believe all of the hype surrounding them. They produce more 1911's than all of the other manufacturers combined. Anyone that I have recommeded a Kimber to, has always been happy.
I found a great forum for Kimber guys. 1911 forums. It doesn't have many haters and ritch people that own Wilsons and Browns don't look down thier noses at Kimber owners. Check it out.
