I have a previously owned Custom TLE II that I bought about three years ago. I have run 7,500 rounds through it, give or take a few hundred. I have no idea how much it was used prior to my owning it. My previous daily driver was a 1991/A1 with about 2,000 rounds in four years. The Kimber has not been treated kindly. It has been dropped in the gravel, sweated on, used as a tapping device, (only once), been shot in an unclean condition more often than not, and has failed to fire only when the clip became dislodged due to poor carrying and or handling. The thing feels like an extention of my arm, fits my hand perfectly, and still look respectable. I wouldn't consider owning anything other than a Kimber. Which is the reason for my post. I want a new gun but have no way to test drive any of the new Kimbers. Size is not an issue, either way. Price is also not an issue. There is just too much to choose from. Any input would be appreciated.
