New to the Forum from Florida

Hi and thanks for the chance to pick the brains of some experienced Kimber owners!

My pistols / revolvers range from .22lr to .45lc with almost everything in between except a 1911 in .45acp. I intend to address that shortcoming in the near future.

At the moment my mind is set on the Kimber two-tone with the checkered/smooth rosewood grips shown in the on-line catalog in the "Summer 2014" section.

I realize that the MSRP's of various manufacturers have differing amounts of negotiating room. Based on the MSRP of about $950., would anyone care to hazard an opinion of what a fair market value would be?

Thanks in advance!

Hey. Welcome to the forum.

As with most things, the higher the MSRP the more negotiation room. Most of the $1,200 models can be had for around $1,000. But I would not expect anyone to come off $200 on a $950 gun.

You might want to consider something like this and then swap out the grips if needed. This is a pretty good deal, plus 3 magazines (usually only get 1) and a range bag. I've purchased from Northern Firearms. They are reputable.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois spanielck, that's the Custom II that you're looking at. It's not normally offered in the two tone color you see in the summer collection. Because it's a special run you may have a hard time finding one and may not have much negotiating room because it's going to be a limited run.

I like the steel frame of the Spring Collection Custom II. I'm sure no one will be coming off the price for that one.
