Kimber Stainless Raptor II
Please give me suggestions. I can probably pick that up for right around $1k. What else should I be looking at?
Keep in mind this is for CA
I have kimber.. no problems with it. It just doesnt like winchester rounds.
10mm colt delta elite or fuck off
hate shiny overpriced guns.
give me Springfield GI45 and I'm good to go
i originally wanted an SIS or Tactical Entry II, but they're not legal in CA
pretty sure that's not CA legal
what's wrong with stainless?
shiny, reflects, more slick, makes you look like a douche.
I prefer my guns to be functional over form.
I want a gun that I can drop in a mud puddle, pick up, shake and shoot if need be.
The most expensive Springfield you can buy. Series 80 1911s suck IMO and the Kimber has a firing pin block. Get one with an internal extractor (I think all Springfields are that way).
why would it be illegal?
Kimber's good. I had an eclipse II 5", damn beautiful gun. For some reason I always ended up shooting better with my friend's springfield though...
Because 10mm is considered a destructive device in Ca.
wow are you fucking serious
I sold my Grand Raptor II
So I could buy my Springfield Marine Operator.
I liked the Kimber, but the weird safety system kinda freaked me out..plus it just didn't excite me when I shot it.
if it's not in this list, it cannot be purchased in CA
i have a kimber warrior it works fine except being picky on magazines but i think kimbers and springfields are overprice.if i had to pick again i would get the dan wesson a semi custom gun for a fraction of the price ftw.
i probably should just pony up for a Les Baer Premier II
Have you even been able to find ammo lately? ;o
yes, at shows. plus i have friends that make their own.
don't know shit about guns but that's sexy.
i'm still confused. i know that wilson combat and les baer make superior 1911s compared to kimber, but they're double or triple the price. the kimber tactical entry/tactical custom got really good reviews in recent press with 1.5" groups at 25 yards.
i own 5 SIGs and a walter PPK/S, and my SIGs have never, ever jammed on me. are kimbers just shitty pistols? for my first 1911, shouldn't it be good enough? also confused about the whole internal/external extractor thing.
