Birthday Present

1490 10
I visited my favorite local gunshop looking for a Pro Tactcal. They had one and it felt great in my hand. While I was there I checked the used gun case and there I found my birthday present a Pro Shadow Limited Edition II. I didn't know about that model so when I got home I looked it up and did a search here. Based on how it felt in my hand and what I read I went back today and brought home my birthday present. They had the original box, paperwork even the hanging tag. Best part only $650.00 plus tax. YIPPEE!!!!!!!! :biglaugh:

I finally had a chance to shoot my new to me Kimber. It functioned flawlessly. It handled ball ammo with no hesitation and when I tried 185 grain hollowpoint the pistol never hiccuped. Also it is dealdy accurate. A friend told me it wasn't used, just broke in, I agree. I have a new carry gun!! :cool:

Yeah, we need pictures. I've never heard of a "Pro Shadow Limited Edition II". Is that the one with the flux capacitor and the Setzer valve? :biglaugh:
Actually it is the one with the fratzenhammer spur assembly. Here is a picture. Seems the Kimber Custom shop makes a limited run of pistols with certain features similar to SIG's gun of the month. The Shadow Pro has a black aluminum frame, blued slide, stainless hammer, trigger, grip and thumb safeties. The grips are like the Tacical series, black and silver.

Also looks like a checkered front strap. Night Sights? How does everybody else find all these rare/special edition guns? Nice find by the way. Do you know what year it was produced? I guess I need to expand my local area scouting by about 200 miles or so. :hrm:

Your correct it does have front strap checkering and mepro light night sights. It was produced in 2002.I just stumbled on this one at my favorite gun shop. I don't go there very often since my wallet can't take the pressure.

I agree, it looks like a Tactical Pro with a black frame. Only other differences are no ambidexxtrous safey and no magwell. It is a blast to shoot.

Forgot to mention it has an internal extractor.
