Kimber 3200068 Custom TLE II 7+1 45ACP 5"
[3200068]
$879.00
by Paul M Date Added: Wednesday 03 July, 2013
This is my first Kimber, and I have to admit that I was very reluctant to spend nearly $1,000 for a pistol. However, two of my friends are Kimber snobs, and having shot theirs I thought I'd take the plunge. After some research I decided on this model mainly because I thought it would be a one-time purchase, and I wanted to ensure that I got something that I would not regret later saying "I wish I had gotten night sights, etc.".

I received the pistol from Bud's after a moderate wait on backorder due to the recent panic buying. And it was a few weeks until I had a chance to take it to the range this past weekend. Admittedly with my vision (I shoot w/o my glasses typically) my marksmanship is not the greatest, although I usually get close enough to do the job. Shot groupings were consistent, recoil was very manageable, and performance was flawless after 150 rounds. The only thing that I really do not really care for is the Kimber mag, which I find someone difficult to load. Fortunately, I have four others that I had purchased at the same time, which proved well worth the extra money.

While this is not my favorite gun (Beretta and FN are still way up there), it is definitely a great shooter. And I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality 1911. When I say that it's not my favorite, it is due to the overall 1911 design and not the gun itself. I just find disassembly/reassembly and cleaning a bit tedious compared to more modern designs. But if you are in the market for a 1911, buy it. You won't be sorry.
