Ordered a Sapphire Ultra

Been listening to you guys saying how long it would take to receive your Kimber when ordered through your LGS. It made me wonder if I would be happy waiting that long if I ordered a Custom Shop Sapphire Ultra in 45 ACP. Well...I figured what the heck, a little wait for something that nice would be worth it. So last week I ordered it on a Tuesday. As fate would have it my Sapphire was delivered 8 days later. Wow! Was I just lucky or are things loosening up at the Kimber Custom Shop?

Congratulations on the new Ultra Sapphire j-sack that's a fine looking gun. The Sapphire has been out for a couple of years now and Kimber probably has a good supply of them in stock.

j-sack , congratulations on you new Ultra sapphire. I just bought the Diamond Ultra in 9mm and it's a great gun. I'm sure you will enjoy the 45.

I may be repeating something you all know but when I went looking for my Raptor the GS called his supplier and knew immediately if he could get it within a couple days or would I have to wait. I'm not sure if the Cleveland area has more demand and a larger supplier.

Congratulation on your new purchase of the 45 Sapphire I'm sure you will
Be happy. I just bought my first 45 a couple weeks ago an Ultra Eclipse I love shooting it.
