New to Kimber

After seeing their ads in the gun mags for years, I finally decided I needed to try one. I already have a Colt 1911 made in 1952, so that will stay in the safe for now. Picked up a Custom II Two Tone in .45 acp at the gun show this past weekend, and am looking forward to breaking it in. I field stripped and oiled it, and it is tight!!

Welcome from Mid Michigan! Hope you enjoy the new Kimber, one word of warning though their addicting. You can't have just one.

BobSME welcome to the forum from a Middle Tennessee. I have a Colt 45 Government Mark IV, series 70 that I bought about 1974. Love the 1911s!

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. Congrats on the Two Tone, prices on them are pretty cheap I bought one not long ago.
Going to convert mine with the .460 Rowland kit soon.

Welcome to the forum from Ohio. Does the SME stand for Society of Manufacturing Engineers?
