Kimber Pro TLE II Opinions??

I am considering purchasing a used Kimber Pro TLE II and was looking for opinions on this specific model; reliability, functionality, build quality, etc.
Thanks,

Great gun

I used to have one and the TLE models are one of the best. You can't go wrong.

Purchased One!

New to me; mid 2018 manufacture. Very well built, tight tolerances, balanced, and pointable. A little heavier that my alloy framed 1911's I am used to, but should still be manageable for concealed carry.

The TLE's are in my mind Kimber's best deal for features and price. You get a LOT for not much more than their entry level 1911s, which are also really good deals.

Did you get it? I think the TLE is a great value.

I have the TLE in the Ultra. About 1000 rounds and no issues except for HP rounds and dependabilty. Ended up with Golden Sabers running 100%. Some complain of the Kim Pro finish but I have had no issues with it.

I have the TLE pro and it runs 100% shoot very well and a little heavy for concealed carry but with a good belt not a problem. I like iwb and the butt does have a sharp edge that has so far not been a problem. I could see hwo depending on position you may need an undershirt.
