Congrats!

I know what ya mean - the range here closes at 6pm. I wish it was open until 8pm or 9pm.

Just remember, get some Wilson mags and/or order some TRipp rebuild kits :)

Very nice looking pistol! Very nice!

Yours has a different trigger than mine, but the one I had you could adjust the over travel by tweaking a couple of tabs on the back of the trigger. Of course you had to completely disassemble it to do it, but that's half the fun of having a 1911... Right? :-D
That Kimber Compact had the best trigger pull of any pistol I ever shot! I had NO trouble qualifying with a 100% score... Great shooter!
You will enjoy it! :wink:

Beautiful pistol man, congrats. :-D

Hal, is this your primary carry weapon? How much does one of those Kimber Custom's generally go for?

It's not my primary carry now. I purchased it years ago, when they were quite a bit more reasonable, maybe not as refined but definitely cheaper...
I carried it for about six months, but being all stainless, it was heavier than I thought I wanted to carry...
Great shooter though!

Now I vacillate between a Sig P220 (older W.German style) and a Walther P99 (again, older style)...

Congrats on your new purchase-

I like Kimber's as well. I had too trade (UP) from a NIB 5" Raptor II,
in order too obtain my NIB Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special 1911.
However, I still own, shoot, and carry my Kimber Stainless Ultra
Carry II .45 ACP~! :-D Just acquired a NIB Springfield park'ed
MIL SPEC, to go along with my 2x Springer WW-II G.I. replicas.

I have never shot a Kimber I didn't like. I'm sure yours will be all you expect and more. Also, it looks cool, that's a big plus. :-D
I wish my Kimber had the bottom of the trigger guard and front strap checkered like yours.
