What made these worth more than the standard custom? I remember them, but I don't know what is so great about them. For some reason I have it in my head that it was just wood grips instead of the plastic, and maybe something different with the finish? Anybody have any confirmation on any of this? The Kimber website doesn't appear to be much help on this.

Grips

I don't think the other Custom models have plastic grips, they have rubber ones. dubb-1 has covered the differences.

I have a Royal Custom Series I. The difference between the Custom and the Royal Custom is the Royal has a high polished blued finish and wood grips.

Hope that helps!
