New member and Kimber owner from NC

Hi, I am new to Kimbers but not the 1911 platform. I have been contemplating getting one for some time. I finally made the plunge and acquired a Kimber Stainless model. I traded my SS Springfield to a guy on armslist. I was happy to get it. This thing is a tack driver. I have never shot a 1911 this well. One of the main reasons for moving away from 1911s and going to a Beretta 92 9mm. lets just say the Beretta is back in the safe. Hope to convert others to this package. If you look at today's prices for a new gun, why buy a mil-spec Springfield when you can get a Kimber.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I think you will find the 'tune' of a Kimber well above the Springer field grade pistols. Don't get me wrong, I have a few of the higher end Springers, and that's what Kimbers should be compared/contrasted with. You got the better end of the trade.
