Glad to be apart of Kimber Talk

I have been reading a lot of on line bashing of Kimber’s. I own and am proud of my Custom II. Manufactures date is 3-20-2015. I received it new on 11-2016. I have 600+ rounds through it with 0 FTF or FTE. Love it and will enjoy it for a long, long time. Please tell me what’s not to like with Kimber. Looking forward to Kimber Talk forum.

TGA, welcome to the site from Tennessee. Most all 1911 Kimber owners love them, owners of the ill fated Solo's and now the looks like a 1911 but it's not Micro's are writing a different hate history.

Some buyers didn't know Micro's could have some issues, others new about the possible problems and either thought those issues were false or that they could "Fix" them or just decided to ignore the warnings.
I feel bad for the buyers that didn't know.

I think it's fair to say that Kimber's 1911 platform offerings have a good reputation among most gun owners, though you'll see some needling from Colt fanboys and such... eh... no big deal. That said, Kimber offerings beyond their 1911 platform haven't earned a stellar reputation. Kimber is still pretty new at designing and engineering centerfire handguns from the ground up. Hopefully the new EVO will be a home run.

Unless it's some type of family heirloom or has personal history anchored to it, suggest to not wrap your "pride" too tight around any gun. You'll end up like guys who earn Forum time-outs for suffering emotional spasms because someone had less than flattering comments about their 'pride'. It's just a gun.

If ya wanna have pride in something, how about your photo skills? Take a decent pic of yer Custom II and show it off.
