    I picked up my first 1911 (a Kimber Pro Carry II) just a few weeks ago.

    :slap: That IS the GI spec model. That is why it is called the milspec.

    I like it too, but I don't care for the trigger, or the spur hammer, and it needs some better sights.

    I have those same grips on my Kimber and I love it, it makes a world of difference.

    you got raped on that milspec. they should go for no more than $400, and i've seen them as low as $350. i've also seen them as high as $450, so you're not as bad off as you could've been.

    by the way, i love those things. i have yet to fondle one with less than an awesome trigger. my only complaint is that they are EXACTLY like the originals, and you can't replace the front sights with anything else. but, they're great, and well priced.

    Ok, there are a couple minor differences, but it is basically the same gun. Different sights, and one has slanted cocking serrations, a slightly diff. hammer, and diff. grips, that is all I could tell from that angle.

    yep, but those minor things make all the difference, to me at least

    original 1911's are my favorite kind:)

    IMO, they are ugly as fuck, but whatever floats your boat. My kind of 1911, is a nice shiny Kimber Eclipse II, even though I could only afford the Custom Classic I.
