2 newest additions

By popular request I am sharing my 2 brand spanking new Kimber acquisition.
I put in an order for the KHX OR in 9mm about 2 months ago. In the mean time I broke my teeth in on gunbroker with the 10mm Eclipse.
So as my luck would have it the KHX showed up at the LGS where I had it on order the exact same day the Eclipse was delivered. So needless to say my Tuesday was rather exciting. I have not shot either yet but I will say that the KHX is the tightest 1911 I own. Very impressed. Anyone that knows me knows I love my raptors but will have to say, so far the fit and finish of the KHX is better than my Raptor Custom. The Eclipse is just sexy and is my first 10mm. The fit and finish is very good also. I have broke them down and cleaned them both so they are ready to hit the range....hopefully this weekend.

Side note: I must admit that if I would have listened to Marshall and bought the KHX off of gunbroker I would have had it 2 months ago. I have patience and was willing to wait lol

Two Kimber's on the same day SWEET! Once you get used to buying on GunBroker you'll never wait 2 months again.

My Kimber's bow to your Highness!

This is just my .02cents. If Kimber wanted to step it up a notch they should offer a KHX model with (TFS) threaded for suppression. I vote a Pro size.
