All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

It's not my first one. My first one was a colt Gold cup 80 series. And that one turned me off of the 1911's My BB gun held a better grouping. This one has had a lot of work done to it. I fully expect it to do better.

If you just want a 1911. That will hold an OK grouping.

If you want a good one, yeah, you will have to save your pennies.

1911's surely are an addiction. A year ago I bought my dad a Para, since then he has gone from Para to Kimber and now to STI Super Nighthawks. I have raised a monster. lol

Nice gun. How much did you have to give for it, and what all is done to it ?

Stainless Kimber TLE RL II 45 acp + 3 mags.

Recoil and firing pin springs were replaced with ISMI springs, super bright Meprolight night sights.

Not sure what all was done. I just know I like the light, and very limited travel on the trigger.


$800.00
