Hello thier & good morning to all my kimber brothers . I want to start off by saying I am a first time gun owner turned 21 in August and decided it was time to buy my first handgun in December. I am a big fan of kimber since years ago and the first time I seen a kimber eclipse custom II in 45 I knew that gun was what I would do ant to buy later on .Now that I am the legal age and decided to buy a handgun and use it to get me a ccw I decided maybe carrying a full 5” is to much for me so I decided to go with my kimber pro carry hd II in 45.acp and couldn’t be happier and feel like I made a very good decision. I love the full size grip with the 4” barrel and it shoots awesome. I couldn’t help notice other 1911s that come with magwells and to my eye it looked naked so i ordered me a smith and Alexander 1 piece magwell and installed easily last night . I also purchased some really nice grips from VZ I got them custom cut for my magwell and since my pro carry didn’t come with front strap checkering I also added the Wilson combat front strap with all these mods I have done to my kimber this month the bad ass aggressive grip it has makes me love it even more . I plan on taking it to the range maybe this weekend if I can .Over all I’m glad to own a kimber and wish to buy more from them.

Welcome, happy birthday, and congratulations! I'm still carrying my stainless Pro SLE (ancestor to your pistol) after 20 years.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Ghost559, I like what you did with your Pro Carry II.
