I have seen too many negatives for Kimber on this forum lately. I have a Custom Classic Target. There is a large dimple in the serrations in the left side of the slide over the thumb safety. Also the rear adjustable sight is falling apart. I think that I will have my excellent gunsmith friend (local) fit it with new AO sights and leave the dimple in the serrations. (Better than not having it for an indefinite period of time, huh?). Anyway, I believe my next 1911 will be a Baer or Wilson. Thanks for a great forum!
