    I could not let the 100th anniversary of the 1911 pass without buying at least one. I had been saving my money to buy an Ed Brown Kobra Carry but when a friend brought his to the range for me to test drive the other day he also brought his Kimber Pro Raptor II. It was the blued version but I fell in love with it. I liked it as much as I did the Kobra Carry and it is about $1400.00 cheaper. I started calling around looking for the stainless version and found that Brightwater had one in stock. They even had it for less than Keith's had it priced. So I ran over and looked at it. It was too late to transfer money so they held it for me until the next day. I went in and got it yesterday. They even through in a free 8 round Kimber KimPro Tac Mag.

    This quick pic does not do it justice but it will have to do until I can get a video of it tomorrow. I will post it once I get it uploaded.

    congrats, they are a nice gun, when I bought this year a Super Carry Pro, it was a toss up between your gun and it. Very smooth shooting gun, you will love it.

    I had the blue model for a while. It was nice, but not nice enough to earn a permanent place in the collection. Ahh, the danger of being a gun-of-the-month whore...

    if the OP had endless funds it sounds like he would have bought his initial handgun mentioned, sounded like he was very pleased to save money, i think it is a perfect gun for him. thanks again for showing it.

    The pro series Kimbers have a great balance to them, and that one is a looker too. Very nice.

    I do NOT like Kimbers... however, I appreciate a beautiful 1911. That is a fine looking gun you have there. The front strap checkering and rear-cocking serrations are wicked.
