Potential New Owner Here

Hello from Indiana. I am considering the purchase of a Kimber Ulta .45, either the TLE II or ultra Carry two-tone.

I'm leaning toward the TLE. Any suggestions?

I can only speak about the TLEs. I have two in stainless, a Custom and an Ultra. The TLE Ultra is my EDC. I have not had any complaints with it. The TLE Custom needed a bit of break-in and I had to have a night sight replaced (warrantied) but is has been fine. I like the sights and the grips on both.

Spikedog, welcome to the site from Tennessee. I'm an Ultra fanboy, all are good but between the two you mentioned I'd probably go with the TLE.
Only TLE I have is the TLE Pro (TFS) it is a nice pistol.

Kind of buyers choice!

Welcome to the forum from a Middle Tennessean....can't go wrong with any 45. I have a Colt Government Model Mark IV that I love to shoot every now and then. It is too big for me to carry everyday.
Retired and loving it.
