I wish Kimber would get out of the etching business. I love a classic gun with expert engraving, but the etching looks cheap to me.

Nope, sorry, I don't like that gun at all.

I thought it looked horrid, like a pimp's pistol. In fact, that new onyx black version just looks like a black and white photograph of the Sapphire model.

They could have invested the "schmaltz budget" on a new Solo, but I guess they thought paint and chrome were better...

Love the grips but the PVD coating that Kimber is using on some of their new line of firearms is hideous to me..
Reminds me of the shoes I rented for the tuxedo in many weddings I have been in..

Not impressed. Too many differing lines, it's confusing to look at.

The black PVD coating dosnt look anything like the blue does. I have seen both in person and its not the same. This gun dosnt match. Looks like a bunch of parts tossed together.
