Try to buy Caspian and Wilson parts and do it yourself for the $850 they're selling for. These are hand-fit pistols with premium parts. They just were announced last week, and last estimate I got was they'll be delivered starting next month. Many dealers are taking orders right now.ULTRA said:...I understand this pistol is nothing but a Caspian frame and slide and other aftermarket parts. What makes that worth a grand?
Amen, competition is very healthy for us, the consumers. Kimber initially forced some manufacturers to wake up and take notice. Now hopefully another manufacturer, e.g. Sig, will again kick it up a notch and we once again will be the beneficiaries. I know I will be at least giving the Sig GSR a long hard look. Competition is a good thing!dubb-1 said:What is it with people and Kimber? There is no need to get defensive. Nobody is bashing your Kimbers...In fact, Kimber wasn't mentioned until three posts ago. This thread is about the Sig GSR. Whether you or I like it or not, this is a good thing. It is another firearm manufacturer having the insight to know that there is a growing market for good 1911-type designs geared toward LEO, and that has done enough R&D to know that JMB's design is deserving of top quality parts.
