Amethyst Ultra II

I'm thinking about getting my wife an Amethyst Ultra II in 9mm and was wondering if anyone has shot one and if it would be a good first 1911 for her?

2sharp2 has the Sapphire version and from what I've read he loves it. But I'm sure he'll be responding to your thread soon. If I were to get one I'd take the Onyx.

I have an Ultra Aegis 9mm. It's very accurate and 300 rounds without a hiccup so far.
My wife cannot rack it so I got her a revolver but I'd get another one myself if the opportunity arises.
She may be stronger though, my wife can't rack mine no matter how she tries to do it.

Haven't shot the Amethyst but assume it is identical to my Sapphire Ultra except it is Purple. It will make a fine pistol for your wife assuming she can rack the slide. I would consider it a Top Of The Line First 1911 for anyone.

Those are some nice looking guns. Now I just have to find one of those money trees people keep talking about and I'll be all set.

I'm female, petite with smallish hands. I have the Sapphire Ultra II, 9mm and it's my favorite pistol. I've run about 2000 rounds through it since February(Valentine's Day gift from hubby) without any problems or malfunctions It does seem to get dirtier than my other pistols, might be because it is light colored and you can clearly see it as opposed to a black pistol. Overall the gun is beautiful, the trigger is smooth, very little recoil & gets quickly back on target. Also love the tritium night sights! I'm completely happy with it. One more thing...I usually use 115 gr ammo in my other pistols but the Kimber did not like them....124 gr works perfectly.
