Kimber products come out of the box with most all of the "custom" features that used to require a good gunsmith and plenty of $$$. This is what attracted me to the brand in the first place. My Stainless Ultra Carry lists for a little over $900, but was purchased new for $669. In the past, one would have to buy a Colt for about the same $$, and pay a gunsmith $1500+ to add all the goodies standard with the Kimber. This is possible because Kimber uses CNC and ultramodern gauging technology, while Colt uses machines older than dirt.
The only "custom" features on my .45 are "double diamond" rosewood grips and superior Chip McCormick magazines.
I am almost 45, with aging eyes, and can shoot a group at 25 yards no larger than a silver dollar! The Kimber is the most accurate handgun I have ever owned, with a 3" barrel to boot! One can only imagine what the longer barrel Kimber models can do.
And, no, I don't work for Kimber- I just believe in the product.
If you are in the market, Kimber will not disappoint.......
