This is all your fault!

Exactly!!! I really wanted to buy my first Kimber, and that's why I got the Compact. But that was before I knew about this forum. Now, in less then a month, I have three. And to get there I have sold or traded two very fine revolvers and a SIG 1911. And now? Now I am already thinking about the fourth one, in fact I am selling one more pistol today !!

Anyhow, here is the question. I have a Stainless Compact II, the Stainless Ultra Carry, and the Stainless Pro Carry II. I am just missing the full size, if I get one then I have all four of them. I think that to complete an "homogeneous" series, the obvious choice would be the Stainless II. Where Am I wrong?

Kimber Stainless II it is! It should arrive next week. Thanks folks, I'll post pictures.

But I have to find a pair of VERY fancy grips first
