Smile Kimber diamond

Anyone seen this beauty? I'm shopping around for another 10/22, and found these guys do custom work. This Kimber would be a safe queen, not holstered.

As the saying goes, "If you have to ask, you can't afford it". So, I'll just say...it's very pretty!

It was $1250 in 2007. TALO Distributors Inc. - special limited edition firearms for sale to stocking firearms dealers across the USA.

I personally wouldn't waste my money on this... I would much rather have a Clackamas Royal or a Series 1 Gold Match for the same price or cheaper. IMO they are more beautiful and will be far more valuable down the road.

This looks like TALO (or Kimber) took a Target II Model and put some gaudy engraving on it, then did a master finish blue job on it. There is nothing "special" about it. No front strap checking and nothing done to the slide that makes it different than factory other than the engraving. I will willing to bet they didn't even refit the slide to frame or put a custom barrel and bushing in it. At least that way they could have said its guaranteed to hit a certain accuracy standard... Nope, not for me
