Looking in near future for another 1911

Hey guys/gals,

I was wondering if what my options were in getting a fullsize 1911 that is similar to a bright stainless/chrome finish. My girlfriend is pissed I bought a 1911 before she did and I will never hear the end of it... backstory is that she wanted a 1911 and I tried to talk her out of it and well i couldnt be more wrong lol

Also she wants a lanyard loop on the mainspring housing.

Anyone have any ideas on this one?


Thanks,

Shin0bi1

If it has to be stainless steel buy the Kimber you want and add a Ed Brown SS mainspring housing with lanyard loop.

Cool Hell Yeah!!

What Chuck said!!

Is she gonna use that lanyard loop to hang that .45 around her neck like a pendant?

No, that ain't open carry, officer; it's just my jewelry!!!

Kimber's stainless finish is matte or with polished flats but I don't think they offer a standard model in chrome. That's not to say they can't be found, but I haven't seen a chrome Kimber.

Closest Kimber I've seen is the gold match stainless which has polished flats.
