After many many years as a gun and reloading enthusiast, I decided to purchase a Kimber Ultra Carry ll Two Tone. I am so glad I pulled the trigger on this one. From reading about Kimbers through the years, the people either loved them or hated them. Well, I love mine! I was looking forward to a multi-round break-in period, but why? After feeding it everything I can cast and reload in .452, it ate them all like a champ. NO malfunctions after 250 rounds. It's eating my 200 gr Lee crazy ogive flat nose. My CZ won't eat those reliably! But anyway, I'm a believer in Kimber and won't hesitate to purchase another great-looking 1911 from them.
