Tactical Custom HD II, anyone have one?

I recently picked up a preowned one, supposedly it is customized by someone who used to work at Kimber. Anyone have one of these models?

My EDC is a Tactical II Ultra, what was done to the gun to customize it? Post some pictures if you can, that would really help.

Yep, I have the Pro model. Great configuration of options on the Tactical line. I'm with Chuck, let us know what they told you was modified, cuz I'd we hard pressed to think of modification that you could make to improve that gun.

So this picture is one that the previously owner put up to show it for sale. I think the trigger and the finish are custom. I think everything else is stock.

Edit: obviously the grips are not stock as well.

Definitely refinished and trigger replacement. The sites might also be replacements. I can't say for certain, but I can't find any other examples with the cocking shoulder for the rear site.

You're right on the finish and trigger John, the rear sight too. The rear sight with the cocking shoulder was the one option Kimber didn't put on the "Tactical" line. I tried to buy that sight out right and when that failed I asked if Kimber would install it on my Ultra and in both cases Kimber said no. The only way Kimber will sell that sight is with a gun attached to it.

Why wouldn’t they just sell a rear sight? That sounds so odd.

Thanks for the feedback. Supposedly the person I bought it from said they worked at Kimber building firearms in the custom shop. I’ve shot it a couple of times and it ran great. Very smooth, I am happy with the purchase.

My LGS has had a Tactical Pro sitting in their case for years. They want $1200 and it’s more than I’m willing to spend but I wouldn’t mind a Pro or Ultra version for the right price. I really don’t know why they discontinued this lineup.
