Old new comer

Hi,this is my first post so here goes. I traded for a kimber gold match and would like to know all about this 1911. I have heard nothing but good words about kimber and jumped on this one in a trade. Tell me what’s good and what’s bad about the gold match. Thank you in advance. By the way I’m a Louisiana country boy.

Like to make the first welcome to a great forum. We have a Kimber Micro Carry 380, we love it. My other 1911 is a Colt Goverment Model 45 which I love to shoot...had it since 1974. Some of the other guys should be able to give you more information.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Oldman11 and congratulations on the new to you Kimber Gold Match. I wish I could offer some help here but of all the guns that Kimber makes the Gold Match is one of the few I've never had the pleasure of shooting.

This old Tennessee country boy welcomes you to the site.
Back in 2015 I was considering buying a Gold Match but a Gold Combat Limited Edition presented itself. Like Chuck, never fired a GM, only heard good things about them. Not sure if they are still in production I'm thinking not. Really accurate, might be the model that used to come with a accuracy guarantee?

Only negative about the Gold Match is I don't own one.
