Oops #12 Couldn't Resist

Was just sitting here minding my own business and there it was on Gunbroker 27 min. to go sitting on a little over 600 dollar bid. For fun I threw out a 700 dollar bid thinking it would never hold up. Yeah me I won, cool $668. Kimber number 12.
Mostly bought it for the threaded barrel.

Kimber TLE Pro (TFS)

(TFS)=Threaded For Suppression

Thanks Hoff, I believe this to be a last year or more when it was made because of the plain black grips. This model in the 2016 catalog has different colored grips and has a MSRP of $1,224.
But it is new and I don't care when Kimber made it. Anyway I thought it was to good a deal to pass up. Missed one the other night was outbid by $5.00. lol

Functional is the most important part

But it does look good too!

Nice! Looks like there might be room in the budget for a one piece beveled magwell (MSH) and some flush cut grips of your choosing it might help complete the tactical look. I personally love the beveled magwells.

Brand new? What a deal. They are going to eat that one. Can't believe there wasn't a starting bid or reserve.

Arland, nice score, I don't know how you keep finding these great deals online. Tell me my friend does that horseshoe hurt when you sit down?
