Ultra TLE carry project complete

I’ve spent the last 16 years customizing and carrying Glocks in 9, 40, 45 and 10mm. I decided I wanted a more classy carry piece so I dove into a Kimber Pro TLE. Shot great but size and weight were just a bit much for my daily carry. I sold the Pro and replaced it with a gently used (broken in) Ultra TLE and fell in love with the combination of quality, style, size and weight all while maintaining 45 ACP. I’ve swapped and added a few components until, for me anyway, I arrived at my “dream carry weapon.” Just wanted to share my enthusiasm for this Kimber platform.

Very nice.

I've been considering getting an Ultra sized Kimber for carry.

Thanks for everyone’s positive comments. I carry IWB at 4 o’clock with a T-shirt under and a shirt tail out over. This weapons hugs my torso and does not print while also being comfortable even while driving for several hours.
