I think stating superior may be a stretch.. Again alot here will depend on your budget and needs/wants.
Well if you're going to attempt a call out, realize you're trying with two people... That said Kimber has a spotty track record on their QC and customer service to match. Yes they do put out some good guns. Search info from the major smiths, Kimber used to be left off the list by a few of the bigguns (though I see one recently added them looks like).
benny503, admitted it was his freind's experience, clarify yours, please.
A Kimber pro Carry II was the first 1911 of any quality I ever bought myself. It was a very nice firearm but I sold it off. Not because of any issues. I just decided I did no like aluminum frames.
For that level of money I would probably chose a Colt for myself.
Again, tell the OP why they are no good. This is not a call out, just asking for validation. You have offered nothing more than regurgitated inter-net barf. I own 4 Kimber 1911s right now, and have owned 9 others over the last 11 years. That qualifies me to comment. The other poster, benny503, admitted it was his freind's experience, clarify yours, please.
The point of replying should be to help the OP. I did, now let's see what you have other than generalizations. Recently the Tacoma, WA police dept. adopted the Pro Carry II as their official duty weapon as did the Los Angeles SWAT Dept, just for the record.
I daily carry my Kimber Pro CDP II, which is a custom Pro Carry. Just shot it today in fact, well over 1000 rounds total. To say I daily carry this gun and trust my life with it should be the highest compliment I could give a gun.
With that said, I also own glocks
