Found Kimber Talk and have been reading through the post on the board all day. I have one of the original Kimber 1911s (3XXX serial #) I purchased just after they were released for sale. I used it for Bullseye Pistol matches for 8 years and won 2 governors 20 pins with it. It has been a good pistol and has had over 15,000 rounds through it. It still shoots as good as always. I have several other 1911s, but my favorite has always been my old Kimber.
