    I purchased this last year and finally got a chance to test it a little. Very happy with the accuracy. You never know when you might need to head shoot a rabbit for food in a survival situation. Didn't even have to adjust the windage and it hits about 2 inches high at 15 yards, which is perfect for me.

    I played with several Kimbers 20 years ago and reliable functioning was hit or miss. Accuracy was acceptable to good. I’d put a bunch or rounds through it so you know what to expect reliability wise. Love the 1911!

    I will do that. I also have the Kimber 380 and it out shoots my Colt and Beretta 380s. I’ve shot it quite a bit and never had a jam.

    Thanks Drycreek. I waited until late in life to get interested in 45s, but I have come to like them a lot. I like the size of those holes they make....:D

    My latest acquisitions, a Freedom Arms in .44 Magnum, a Ruger Bisley Flattop in .44 Special, and a Ruger Bisley Super Blackhawk Hunter in .44 Magnum. I’m rearranging my gun safe, got two up for sale and aquired three…..o_O

    That’s the kind of math I like.
