Kimber® Ultra Crimson Carry II Pistol
Runs smooth as butter. Cleaned and re-oiled first (i use grease on 1911s) and have fired almost 100 rds with not a single FTF problem of any kind. I will use only ball ammo for the first 150 rds or so for break in. Accurate and laser is sighted in matching stock iron sights out of the box. Field strip breakdown procedure takes some practice but is helped by buying the special tool for this and not using the "paperclip" tool Kimber supplies. This is my only small criticism. It is comfortable IWB carry for a1911at 25 oz. Pricey but worth the $.

I own a multitude of handguns that range from .22 cal to 357 mags, and my Kimber .45 ACP is by far my favorite. Shooting accurately with this piece is it's biggest attribute. Recoil is low for a 45 ACP. It's beautifully crafted and easy to carry. Though a little pricey, this Kimber is well worth it in my opinion. The only kickback is using the paperclip-type field stripping tool that Kimber provides with this gun. Recently, I have purchased an adapter tool online that has made disassembly a heck of a lot easier. Overall, this is a great gun for personal carry or taking to the range!

Bought this handgun new in December. Nothing but problems since the first time I fired it. Constant failure to feed issues. Sometimes it even has an issue just chambering the first round off the magazine. I have heard many possible fixes... buy better magazines, change ammo brands, polish your feed ramp, tune your extractor, make sure you have fired at least 500 rounds for your break-in period, etc, etc. I am telling you honestly that none of that has helped this firearm perform as it should. I have put so much money into an already expensive gun that now I am totally disappointed. I bought this for CC but I can't trust it. At all! The only thing left to do is to send it back to Kimber. If you have one that peforms well, then congrats! I think it's a real hit or miss situation with buying the 3" Kimbers. I personally will never own another firearm with the word Kimber on it. It costs way too much money itself for a person to need to put additional money towards it just to make it work.

IMHO the perfect carry weapon
This is exactly what I was looking for. A light, small, accurate gun. Easy to handle, low recoil. This is a very well made gun of excellent quality. Very comfortable to carry with an IWB holster. You don't even know its there, but packs 7 45 cal rounds. Cons: replace the sights with meprolight night sights. Also, buy the ultra tool that can be found on-line. Really makes breaking down the gun a breeze. These are minor investments that will yield significant improvements making this gun everything you could dream of.
