So I ended up with this Kimber Royal II. As soon as I saw this thing I wanted it. It has such a pretty finish. I'll probably get the STI Trojan soon but wanted to grab this one first since they're more rare around here. Can't wait to test this thing out....

The fact that you said it has a "pretty finish" should mean you have to send it to me immediately and turn-in your ManCard. :tongueout:

Before youget blasted by all he "MIM" decryers and Kimber haters, let me congragulate you on a real nice lookin' pistol. I've got 3 Kimbers, and am very happy with them all....but I'm Josin' for a Wilson full sized Kobra...either blue, or GEN3 black.

Nice find. The Royal is a beautiful pistol. Of the 11 Kimbers I have, the Royal is not one of them. At least, not yet. Again, congrats.

Serious, Kimber Royals are very nice looking 1911s and yours looks to be in fine shape.

Congrats :)

Thanks again Bac. It is in good shape, I bought in NIB. I'm very happy with my purchase. Are they hard to find anywhere else? They aren't very abundant around here.

When I got home I still couldn't stop thinking about the STI Trojan, so I made a trip back to the shop and ordered one..Yikes, the fever is back!

You don't see them in shops much, but I shop for stuff like that on Gunbroker.

There's usually a decent selection there. :)

Nice Kimber! Those Royals are nice finds when you can get your hands on them.

Oh, and as a Marine, that last pic is blasphemous!

I agree 100%. Chesty would be jumping out of his grave if he saw that.

It was merely a joke on the 'pretty' comments by 2740 and the OP. No disrespect meant to any past or present Marines. I am ALWAYS appreciative of their service and sacrifice. Pic changed. I apologized to anyone offended.

I figured you were just joking, but some things are sacred to Marines and the Iwo Jima flag raising is one of those things. No ill feelings. :supergrin:

Honestly, I thought it was just a goofy picture and it didn't even dawn on me of the significance of the Iwo Jima reference until you guys mentioned it. Sorry about that.

Don't worry about it, I think most of us took it as a joke. At least I did and the joke was on me....

I'm just jealous because I have a "regular" Kimber and not a "pretty" Kimber. :whistling:
