FS: last chance on KT...pm with Questions:Pristine Late 1998 Kimber Classic Stainless

$50 price drop: $750 shipped from me to your FFL who must accept transfer from an individual. $700 FTF near Raleigh, NC and vicinity. This is a last try here before it will be offered elsewhere. I'd like it to belong to a KT member.

I am the original owner of this firearm purchased in January 1999. For those who don't know, it is a series 70 style action, with no firing pin safety like the IIs. It has been fired less than 500 rounds of factory 230 gr. ammo. I have the original box and bushing wrench and will include 3 Kim Pro 8 round Tac Mags. PM me with questions, for more pictures or to discuss other concerns. PM me about payment options.

It has one small "safe bump" mark on right front of frame, and it has new Kimber rubber grips (the originals disappeared) and aftermarket grip screws. Other than that it is pristine, all original except for the magazines, and shoots great. Never holstered, never carried, and was cleaned and lubed after each trip to the range. I have an email from Kimber that says its build date was 10/28/1998.

Shipping will be insured via ShipMyGun.com.

WOW! That is a damn nice one! And what I would think is a pretty damn good price. I have the same exact 1911. My favorite. It's had some work done to it, it's soooooo smooth and makes me look better than I am at the range.

Someone is going to get a sweet gun here... back when Kimber was truly amazing. They're good now, don't get me wrong, but back then - YES!

GLWS!!

KCóI just donít shoot it, especially since Iíve gotten the Ultra and a Ruger LW Commander both in 45, as well as an M&P Shield 45. Itís too nice to sit in a safe.

Iím 71 and have 10 pistols, no revolvers, so Iím going to slim down in the striker fired section of the safe too, and then shop for either a nice 4Ē revolver or maybe a 2011 or who knows...

Thought Iíd offer it to KT folks first at a fair price, and if no one grabs it, iíll move it to GB and try to start an auction frenzy.
