    Looking at getting a Kimber for match use, the requirements are obviously 1911 full frame, 45

    Which is about it, which variation does OT like the most? There are like 100 different models on their site

    I like the ones with lasers, grenade launchers, and curb feelers :)

    If you are getting a 1911 for match use there are much better options than a Kimber.

    there is too much information in that post, please make less suggestions and post less pictures, it is just too overwhelming

    If it's going to be used in competition chances are most of the guns you'll see are high end Springfields, Les Baer, Ed Brown, Wilson, or custom built rigs. Kimber has gone to shit in recent years and it's 50/50 if you'll get a good gun or a complete lemon.

    Of couse, after you add all your mall ninja shit it won't really matter.
