Have you had an Accu Rail equipped 1911?
Do you know anyone who's had one?
What do you think about Accu Rails? The pros and cons please...

Series I Kimber Gold Match - it's on it already, I'm thinking of buying it.

I don't really like the idea a whole lot myself and the first question that comes to mind is why would you put them on a Kimber. They come fairly tight from the factory so what was the reasoning.

Cant hurt, might help.

I have an STI Edge with over 100K rounds on it. Maybe 60-70K since Doug Jones railed it.

I dont regret have it railed at all.

BTW, I never thanked you for that very well thought out and informative answer. So, I'll do it now, thanks Neal.

I usually think of accu-rails for old clapped out guns, guns that are poorly fit, or guns that require a very smooth slide to frame motion -- to allow light target loads to function well. I considered them for a Delta Elite that I had rebuilt, but went with the gunsmith welding up the rails and refitting instead. I have never been sure which way would have been best.

The Kimber Gold Match has, in my opinion, been devalued by the accu-rails.
