I... Like It!

First, thanks for the counsel when I asked about this gun,

Picked it up last night. Actually sat in the chair at home and just handled it last night. I will get it cleaned and dressed sometime today and take a trip to the Range tomorrow.

Very happy with it, feels great in my hand, like the “Heft” and the trigger is butta. Also really like the look, it looks determined. I need to compare to my PCII, the grips on the TLE feel slimmer? Whatever it is the TLE feels better when gripped..... if they are slimmer, the PCII will be getting new grips! She is still a little greasy

Anyway, no picture, never happened.......

If you think you like it now just wait until you get to the range, you're going to love it.

The TLE will shoot just as well as it looks and feels, maybe even better.

Congrats there, Doons, glad your new Kimber is rocking your world.

If the grips feel thin, they may indeed be 'thin grips'. I've installed them on most of my 1911's, and it's amazing how it changes the overall 'feel' of the weapon for the better compared to the standard thickness grips.

Looking forward to your joyous range report.
