Kimber Covert

A local guy I know is offering a Covert for sale, with night sights and Crimson Trace grips. Says it has some wear. So tell me about the Covert model...

You can get all the specs on it on Kimbers website. All Kimber 1911's are the same on the inside the difference is the looks and options on the outside.

Great -- I wasn't sure if it was a current model. Thanks, Chuck!

Well, I found out that it has a 4" barrel, so it is a Pro Covert, same size as my Pro Carry HD II. Says he has the box and will throw in some ammo -- asking $750.

I'm interested, but I have no shortage of 1911's. What do the Covert owners think?

If it's any help.......I bought a "used " Covert last summer. It was literally brand new, couldn't even tell it had a round thru it. I paid $900.00.

Bought a never fired brand new "used" Eclipse II LG ( Crimson Trace grips ) for $850.00.

The Covert isnít a cheap gun, if itís in good shape $750 seems like a good price.

Thanks for the quick responses! I have a question out to him about the color. If it is gray, I will be more interested than if it is tan.

I have had good dealings with this individual in the past; if the pistol is gray, I will probably shoot him an offer.

I agree Charlie, I’d prefer the gray finish too.

Sadly, the pistol has the tan finish.

Itís still a good price but personally I wouldnít want to settle for something that costs $750 if I really didnít like the finish.
