Hi all,
I bought my first Kimber today and started looking for a Kimber forum. Not new to 1911's, but my new buy is a Kimber 1911-22 Target model. This is the nicest 1911-22 I have handled and it was on sale, plus I get an extra mag. in the deal.

Now I am ready to run a brick or two through it, to see if I need to do some simple modifications. One must-do is an ambi safety. I shoot left handed and my wife shoots right handed.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois GeorgeC and congratulations on the new Rimfire Target. Give it a good cleaning and lube it before making that first range trip and you should be good to go.

Kimber dropped the Rimfire Target and Rimfire Super from the 2017 lineup so if anyone is interested in getting one now would be the time to buy it.
