Kimber Compact Stainless 45

Can anyone give any experienced impressions of the Compact? One is for sale in my area. He says it is a very early production Compact stainless. There is some wear, but it looks pretty good. It comes with 3 mags (2 are Wilson Combat), a Milt Sparks versamax, and a S&A magwell. He's looking for $750. My attempts at research say it is a 4" barrel weighing 27 ounces with a bull barrel. Thoughts or experience with one?

This should be the Gen 1 Pro model, and yes, early production. I would suspect it will need some spring replacements is he has been shooting it, but it should be a rock solid performer. I can't say on the price, it will have to be your call based on condition.

Thanks. He says it has a brand new Wolff spring and extractor.
