    I always wanted a 1911 and the fact that I am taking a trip into bear country gave me cover to get one. I bought a 10mm Kimber Long Slide. I also bought some 220g hard cast bullets from Buffalo Bore. Wanted to see if others had used this or a similar combo. I talked with Kimber and they...

    Howdy, y'all, I'm new here -- be gentle. I joined the world of 1911s a few months ago -- this weapon has been a traditional staple in my family for generations. Every man on my father's side got a 1911 (either gifted or purchased themselves) when they reached their early 20s. Well, I went ahead...

    New 1911 owner here. Having issues with my brand new kimber ulta carry 2. Slide stops about 1/8 inch or so from battery with or without ammo every other time or so. Absolutely cannot push it into position once stuck. Can get one round to chamber sometimes, fires fine then second gets stuck...

    Hello, Currently have a kimber RHX PRO (optics ready). it comes with the suppressor height white dot sights, and the rear sight is part of the metal of the optics plate.
