A modified version of the "Team Match II" .45 ACP caliber pistol is used by the US Shooting Rapid Fire Pistol Team. In 2002, the LAPD chose a slightly modified and specially marked (marked in "LAPD SWAT CUSTOM II") version of the Custom TLE II as the standard issue for its SWAT unit. Several other law enforcement agencies have approved Kimber firearms for on-duty carry by their patrol and SWAT officers.[8] In 2007 a new pistol designed by the LAPD Special Investigation Section was added to the Kimber's line of M1911-pattern pistols.[9] A modified Kimber 1911 was also chosen as the sidearm for Marine Corps forces assigned to Special Operations Command

Good read, thanks.
Just yesterday, a local officer entered my building carrying a blued but well worn TLE II. It has been flawless for him and said he'll never part with it.

I've seen that before, the brief history of the company is an interesting read. The list of pistols they show is extensive but not complete.

If you had read all the posts before you you would have seen it was already stated that while it was an extensive list it wasn't complete.
