Tam talks about Kimber 1911s and their marketing niche
Kimber is basically ridding it's past reputation and only makes cosmetic upgrades to their weapons and they're quite overpriced.
Which is why I have only bought used and plain ones. I do like Kimber and I'll admit much of that is inherited fanboyism, as my father has a Custom I.
But since so many have been sold, and often sold to people with more money than sense you can pickup one used at a good price if you keep looking.
Also as a lefty I prefer their ambi safety and how it's retained. But that you can order and put into any 1911.
