After Heated Auction Bids

I was a bad boy. Spent some of my M1A cash. Coming from Corinth Mississippi. I could not pass it up, been watching it all week on GunBroker, it had two bids from the same bidder that did not meet reserve. With 48 min. entered a good solid bid, met reserve I was high bidder for about 10 min. I raised my max bid 100 dollars, auction ended and I won 30 dollars shy of my max. Yeah me.

I called seller he said a older man came up to him last week at a gun show, had bought it new and had never fired it and wanted to trade for two Sig pistols. Yeah me again.
Pictures look like that is a true statement. Older guy added a mag well, rest of pistol looks original and unused.
I called Kimber the other day with the serial number it left the mothership on Feb. 19th 2008.

Kimber SIS Custom
Box, papers, 2 magazines

Got these pics from Gunbroker, not sure why but they were sideways when I down loaded them.

Why thank you Chuck! I am tickled with it myself.

Seller was real nice and I would have been even more excited if I had known the history before bidding. I will know more after it gets here but it looks new to me.

I just bought a second piece of history but it may not amount to anything in my lifetime.

Wasn't the SIS models built for the LAPD special investigation group or something like that? Nice find.
