    Any Opinions, Experience On, Or With, a Kimber Super Carry Pro 4 inch barrel 1911 45 Auto?

    I just bought the pistol and have not had a chance to shoot it yet. The counter guy at Ace Sporting Goods in Washington, PA could not give a highr recommendation as he owns and carries one while working at the shop.

    Guys at Ace know their stuff. Does Kimber recomend a breakin period? With any 1911, I say try a few different boxes of ball before you run hollow points through, and then make sure it likes a particular load.

    More shooting = more rane time = more fun

    Yes, booklet stated a break in period. Eagle FMJ's already bought and will try out this weekend.

    I've a Kimber Custom Classic that shoots like a dream. I don't think I've ever had a malfunction with it. I got it used so I can't speak to the break in.

    They're nice guns! About 4 years ago my neighbor had a new one that would slam fire and go full auto right out of the box (saw it happen), and (almost unfortunately) they fixed that right away.
    Fun > rules.

    Just shot the Kimber SCP today. As mentioned earlier I used American Eagle Ful Metal Jacketed bullets. All shots were of semi-rapid fire to test functioning.

    Not one jam, mis-fire, or any problem at all. Pistol shot like a dream and is very accurate.

    A Keeper!!!

    Cool

    I have a 4" TLE/RL II. Good nightstand gun for me (I carry a S&W 1911 stainless - less bulky than this).





    Gotta nice Ultra Covert II as well, for pocket carry. I NEVER would have splurged for the Crimson Trace grips seperately, but as part of the factory package, they're alright! Pictured here with my OTHER pocket carry - Taurus 605

    '92 Dodge Ramcharger - 4 1/2" lift, 35's, 318 Magnum... a work in progress...

    They DO work as advertised (the point & aim is true, but if you're a righty, & USED to indexing your trigger finger along the frame, you WILL end up BLOCKING the laser! ) and the battery life seems quite good. Still on the original battery though - can't wait to see how much of a bear they are to change...

    My CT Lasergrip on my LCP goes through about a battery a year. CT will send you replacement batteries for free (once a year). Didn't take much to change, at least in that application. Nice product. Nice guns btw!
