Had to get this one. Limited Editiom Target Match 45

Been quite a while since posting but lurking always (keep those jokes coming)
Have been picking up some revolvers and such but no Kimbers.

Anyhow, Had to grab this used Kimber Limited Edition Target Match. 843 of 1000 . Bluing is perfect, I would estimate maybe 100 rounds through her. All the original papers, ads and such in the case. And also a set of custom made signed grips that I forget the make of.

No pics yet as I have my usual delay of a few days

I really need to stop checking my locals website on the used guns... He only takes in pretty much mint condition ones.
Although I did pass on the NIB Colt Python as 2500.00 was out of my price at the time.

I seem to recall what that one looks like, and it was a nice package. The Custom Shop back in the early days seemed to put out a few nice models each year. All limited run.

At the price of that Colt, I'm glad I got mine many years ago. I suppose it's good to know I could get my money out of it.

Well the Colt was a first generation which gave it that collectors price tag. Once in a wile they let me know of goodies in the safe awaiting the 30 day hold for the state and fed checks on stolen guns database.

If I wasn't down with the Flu I would have picked up the Kimber yesterday.

Yep, my Python was a mid-70's production. I had to send it back to Colt to get the cylinder timing worked out (some amateur messed with it) and now it like 'butter'.

Hope you feel better soon, so you can have some fun with the new Kimber, and we want pic's.

That 10 day wait is a killer, that's a nice looking Kimber.
