I have a friend that has a .45 ECO, it's a beautiful gun that shoots like a dream. The thing that I always wonder about when I see it is if Dan Wesson can make a .45 with a 31/2" barrel work with a one piece guide rod and a single flat wire recoil spring how hard would it be for Kimber to do the same thing with their Ultra 3" barrel guns? Just think about how much easier life would be if they could do that.

Does single sided ambi mean they'll put it on either side for you when you purchase it? I've never heard of that before. That is a great looker, very nice

Very nice. But, why change the grips? They look good.

Great looking pistol, see no reason it would not be very accurate. I wanted one for a while and had it on the "list" of .45's. May still get one some day but a Les Baer Custom has moved up on the list.

Had a Dan Wesson revolver package back in the day, it was nice.
