Thoughts on a Super match

So i am a new member here. Been shooting since I got my permit in 1987.

Currently I have 2 Kimbers, A team match and a TLE both in 45.

I always wanted a Super match after seeing it in a catalog quite a few years ago. Every time i checked with a LGS they all said the same thing ,they could get one but it may take a years or so. I never ordered one out of frustration, anyways fast forward to today, and I did a search on gun broker and found a whole bunch for less then MSRP

So my question is, is this a must have Kimber? What is everyones thoughts

This purchase is definitely a Want not a need, I mostly carry and compete with Glocks

Welcome to the forum from Colorado!

I don't know much about the Super Match, so can't really give an expert opinion about the specific gun. I do have the general opinion that if you have wanted a specific gun for more than 2 weeks, you should get it as soon as it's available & you can afford to.

There is a specific Kimber I want... i have been looking, and have even been willing to drive up to 3 or 4 hours to see one. They aren't avaialble at LGS, and even rare on GunBroker.

He's right, if you have been wanting it for a while, and especialy if you've seen one, make the purchase... the one thing I can tell you is this... If you want one, so does someone else... If you buy it, and shoot it and it isn't all you hoped, Kimbers hold their value pretty damn well.
