Kimber Custom TLE II Stainless vs Eclipse Custom II
I cant see the differences in these two models but I have narrowed my choices to these two guns due to availibility.
I am going stainless though.
I will just be punching holes in paper. Help me choose one. I cant try these guns since I live in Canada and have to order it.
Can anyone give me a review on either of these guns?
2 words, my canadian friend... warrantee support.
think of the pain to ship a gun across the border
Just a suggestion: stop by Para Ordnance. Their HQ is local to you in Toronto:
Phone: (416) 297-7855
Para-Ordnance Mfg. Inc
980 Tapscott Road
Canada, M1X 1C3
They made their name on high cap 1911s with oversize extractors, but also produce single stacks.
Both are very good choices. Both have mainly match grade parts and a 4.5lb. aluminum trigger. The major differences will be the sights, slide and finish. The TLE comes either with blade front/adjustable rear or 3 dot night sights. The Eclipse Custom comes with 3 dot fixed or 3 dot night sights. For adjustable rear/blade front sights on the Eclipse, you would choose the Eclipse Targt model. Also, the TLE can be ordered with an attachment rail as model TLE/RL.

I have shot the TLE 5" and the Eclipse Pro 4". There is very little difference in the feel of the two. Both are like butter. It's mainly a difference in aesthetics.
Do take the comment from "submoa" seriously and look at Para. I have read that many Kimbers come tight out of the factory and a moderate percentage go back for some tweaks during the break in period.
My new TLE (Black) is coming in two weeks.
