Long Slide

I have just picked up this month a Kimber 1911 Target long slide in 45acp. I have taken it to the range and put over 150 rounds thru the gun with no hang ups. The gun is accurate. I have target grips and a magwell coming. Will post a photo when installed. Here is a photo of the gun now.

I all ways wanted a long Slide 1911 but what i have seen for years was long slides in 10mm which is another caliber i don't want to get into. At my LGS i saw this one in the show case new for $950.00 i could not pass it up.

Very nice looking Kimber and for a reasonable price.

How long is the barrel? Ok, I found it 6" barrel. MSRP $1,055.
