Royal II

No, I haven't bought it yet, the tax man set me back a bit....but I've been shaking the cushions for couch money and I'm up to about $1,300.00 now. I have a serious jones for a Royal II...key word being "serious." I'm not farting around here. My son wants a Warrior SOC, but I said "Get in line!" Next gun is a Royal II!

I just hope Kimber has them available when I'm ready to throw down my million quarters and dimes. Damn that gun is pretty!

I wish there were a way to check with Kimber on their production schedule. LGS said ordered guns show up when they show up.

That's exactly what I hear. Kind of deflates me.

I'm going to have a couple of free days in NYC next month....but I've read that Kimber does not do tours and that they really hate drop-ins.

I also saw a used Royal II at my LGS but it was older. It didn't have bone grips or a blued barrel. In fact, it looked a lot like an eclipse. The finish looked nothing like the pic of the current Royal. I would love to see one of these before dropping 2 large.

Hmmm. Hyatt Gun Shop lists the Royal II as a "Special Order" and says expected delivery 10-12 weeks. They have it listed for $1700 and something which sounds better than the $2020 MSRP.

Hyatt

Hyatt's in Charlotte NC?

That's my neck of the woods. I go there pretty often actually.

Wink Oh Yeah........!!!!

THAT is one fine looking pistola!!!! I like the grips, too. If I could find bone grips like that for my PC II, I might even have second thoughts about going for the very expensive ivory!!

Let us know when you get the Royal!! Of course we will need a range report and a few pictures!! Enjoy it when you get it and be safe!!!
