Became a member of Kimber family finally this weekend. Started with the custom LW 45acp stainless/ grey coat. Already looking at 10mm’s. This thing feels like it’s always been in my hand.

Welcome to the forum from Iowa! Yes, Kimber 1911 pistols can become addictive.

Very true!

Matter of fact, if left unattended, Kimber pistols seem to procreate in the safe. Before I realized it, I had nine of them!

Thanks yes they seem to be. There is worse habits to have. Hoping to be a 10mm model shortly as well.

I highly recommend the Camp Guard 10mm. Especially if you like the round heel frames.

Welcome to the forum & Kimber!
I'll bet most of us would like to hear how well it shoots.

Don't believe half of what you hear regarding MIM parts and alloy frames. But you already knew that!

Just avoid tilting magazine followers to prevent dings in your feed ramp.

Take a look at the Eclipse Custom II 10mm, great looks and excellent accuracy. Kimber 1911's do tend to multiply. I started with a 9mm, then a 45acp and finally to a 10mm.
