Anyone shooting the Kimber Target II, 9mm?

Wanting something with adjustable sights I picked up this new Kimber Target II in 9mm....just for something different. I changed out the front black target sight for an easier to see fiber optic. Planning on some single hand Bullseye shooting I replaced the grips with an old set of Rodger's grips and a little Talon grip tape to make a nice one hand hold. I won't be doing too many speed loads but the stainless steel, Wilson magwell looks cool. The trigger is unacceptable at 5# and a little creepy. I hope to tune it to a cleaner 3# in the future. Frankly I would have thought a "target model" would have come with a better trigger.

Let's see your Target and Target II's ...combat guns are all the rage but target guns really hit the bullseye.

Congratulations Paul, I have a Springfield RO SS 9mm 5". It's very similar to your gun and it's become one of my favorite target guns. Recoil is nonexistent, the muzzle doesn't move off target, the trigger could be lighter for a target gun but it hasn't been an issue. Ammo is obviously cheaper. It's a gun that's just fun to shoot. I hope you enjoy yours.

Not exactly the same but I bought this Ultra Carry 9mm for $600 bucks used, seller claimed trigger and accuracy work and green front sight. Turned out to be a accurate and reliable Ultra. Came with a ugly wrap around grip that was functional but I ended up putting a CT red laser on it that I had extra.
