New Eclipse, I have an addiction.

I must admit, I'm not only addicted to 1911's, I'm also addicted to Kimbers.
I have owned and loved 1911's for years and a few months back I bought my first Kimber a SS Ultra Raptor. It was after my first range trip with the Raptor that I knew I was hooked. Since then I have gotten a Solo and today after drooling for weeks over a Kimber Eclipse Custom ll, I finally brought it home. I think it was the grips from the Kimber custom shop that put me over the edge. Either way now I have to make another trip to the RANGE.

Great looking gun, I could see why you couldn't resist it.

Beautiful gun! I think the Eclipse is one of Kimber's best looking offerings.

Exclamation Congrats!!!

Congrats on the new Eclipse! Now you know why gun shops keep the good lookin' pistols in a glass case. They don't want people like me drooling all over them. The glass is much easier to clean!!!

Enjoy that new Kimber. Shoot the day lights out of it and be safe!!!

Wolf1956, that is a sweet looking gun. Congrats.

I think the Eclipse is a classy looking gun. The kind of gun you pull out and lay on the poker table as you sit down for a long nights work. I like it.

So, you've owned 1911's for years, but now you are a Kimber addict after only a couple of months. Tell us more about what you like about Kimbers. And don't be stingy with the superlatives.

Awesome pistol!!! I love the grips!

You and I have a lot in common...

I have an Eclipse Custom II to compliment my SS Ultra Raptor. The Eclipse is just flat good looking. Mine is in 10mm.
