My brain says go for the p238 because just about every owner online raves about it. My eyes are drawn to the Kimber due to the aesthetics. Beautiful looking piece but there are just so many complaints about folks having issues and having to send it back to Kimber.
Obviously this is a Kimber forum and many will be bias, but what do you guys think? Sig or Kimber?
Also I can't seem to find a decent deal online for the Kimber Raptor Stainless. I hit up a few spots this weekend and no luck. Any hints or tips to point me in the right direction?
Enzo, welcome to the site from Tennessee.
I wouldn't call our members biased exactly since many members here own both Kimber's and Sigs, all kinds and brands of weapons. If they are bias it may be for good reason. Well ok maybe we are bias. I would buy the Micro.
The Micro Raptor Stainless, I feel is a popular model line and is one I would consider buying also. The MSRP is $842.00.
I don't know where you have checked online but my go to online site is GunBroker. There is currently 22 different auctions for Micro Raptor Stainless and all of them are listed under the $842 msrp, there was probably 10 or 12 active auctions. Some bids at 400 bucks. The number of listings with bids tells me it is very popular and it looks awesome. I don't know what dollar amount you consider a deal but with a little luck you might score one under MSRP.
