The first 1911 I have ever owned so it's fitting that such a fine pistol come from the finest man I know.
Thank you dad.



400 rounds through it with zero hiccups.

Nice! You'll love the CT grips. I have them on my Sig C3 1911 and they are a great upgrade.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday.

Wait a minute! I though Kimber was supposed to have a 500 rounds break-in to iron out the hiccups. And, aren't the compact 3-inch 1911s supposed to be unreliable. Razz

I have two KIMBER Ultra pistols in 9mm and .45acp. Both have been 100% reliable and shoot like full size pistols. That's a great gift.

Enjoy it; such gifts are tremendously special.

With such short stroke 1911s, be sure to change out the springs often and you should have few issues.

Thanks guys!
I got to put another 200 trouble free rounds through it this morning. (yup, those 3"ers really are unreliable Wink )
Ordered a few mags for it and I think she deserves something fancy from Mr. Grizzle. Something..... bold. Cool

"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
