4.3 stars? Really?

I guarantee you 99% of people posting that rating have never even seen this gun, let alone held or shot it. I really don’t get what the Kimber hate on the internet is all about. I’ve shot a lot of 1911’s, and it’s hard to get a better 1911 than a Kimber. My guess is either they’ve got “hipster syndrome”, or they’re people who can’t afford a new Kimber, so they’re basing their review of this firearm of some Kimber they bought years ago that had 20k rounds through it. Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s not objective or rational.

Anyway, on to the review: I bought this as an upgrade to my Walther PPS because it would FTF about 1/150 rounds (which, by the way, has a 7.5 on this site for some reason). This gun in one word: amazing. It’s compact and misleadingly light-weight. The fit is flawless, you can definitely tell Kimber puts a lot of work into making sure the parts on this gun fit perfectly (I am not new to 1911’s, usually tolerances are not this precise). This thing has got all the bells and whistles on it, the tritium night sights are awesome, as is the Crimson Trace grip, which saves me the trouble of upgrading some other 1911. Somehow, even though it’s small, it is very easy to hold, and seems to handle like a high-end full-size Kimber.

While the price tag is pretty steep, the resale value on these things was also a huge selling point for me. Not that I’ll be selling it, it’s worth every penny as far as I’m concerned.
