Out of the guns I have, this one is my favorite. Kimber sets the standard for others to try to follow. You pull this one out when comparing weapons with your friends, the Glock carriers are gonna be the last ones to show theirs, after seeing this gun, they know they don`t compare!!!!! Buying this gun has made me pre-order the SOLO 9, and another one just like this one, just to have a matching set! - J. T.
I have owned my PT 1911 now for a little over 6 months now and have put over 2000 rounds through it. I didn't buy it through Ables(sorry) but instead got it through BassProShop. I love the gun though, there inst anything I don't like or think they could improve upon. The Two Tone finish is a great look especially if you order some rose wood grips for it from Taurus. The Heinie sights are great and make it very easy to shoot. Wish I did buy it through Ables it would of been 100 cheaper. Overall I love the gun and give it Buy for sure. - M. E.
Great Service by Able's. What more can you say about a Kimber, the gun is incredible, light weight, accurate, and well made. Easy to clean. The laser blends in perfectly with the weapon. 250 rds so far and no problem. - R. H.
This has become my favorite gun. I'm in love with it! However, replace the "recoil assembly" with the one from Colt, and you will have a real gem! Anyone who holds it loves it. It's solid, accurate and dependable. It comes in a brown, cardboard box with enough cushion to protect it. Just one mag. A 7rd, PSI/Act Mag. Some don't like them, but I have a dozen and haven't had any problems. Wait, one has a cracked lip. The finish may be a little thin, but my Fobus E2 paddle keeps it snug and hasn't left any permanent marks yet. I've run 230gr Win Rangers and White Box. I've tested 185gr but don't notice the diff. I replaced the grips with a set of Pachmayr Signatures. Next will be a set of night sights. Not much else to do but shoot it and clean it. The shorties do need a little more maint than the full-size 1911's. - ROBERT
