This is just the way I have always envisioned one. :cool: Those grips look ok on it, but that's what came with it and I'll most definately be swapping them out for something else. Probably black.

I'm not a big 1911 fan, but I admit the SIS is the one I'd most like to get (if I ever got another 1911). With the NYS 7 limit, a SIS could be in my future.

How much do they cost?

I joined the NRA, have you yet?

Kimber discontiued them a few years ago. They can be found on GB. Most likely run $1000+

I remember when these first came out. I love the looks and the story behind this gun. Good stuff!

What a great pistol. What is the finish? if you decide to sell those grips, PM me, I just put the same grips on my Pro TLE II RL

Thanks. :cool: The finish is a bead blasted stainless. Gun was originally coated with KimPro. I'll defintaely keep you in mind should I decide to sell those grips. :wavey:

I was wondering how a bead blasted stainless would look. Love it!

I think the slide on a Kimber CDP is bead blasted stainless

I know my CDP Pro has a stainless slide, but couldn't tell ya if it was bead blasted from Kimber or not. :dunno:

Nice!

From what I hear, Kimber discontinued the SIS.
(ETA: Ooops! Glock2740 beat me to it.)

Greg, it kind of reminds me of the stainless Beretta you had/have.
