    I think you will be happy with that gun....

    I have two Kimbers; a stainless 1911 Gold Match .45 (it belongs to my daughter but I shoot it often) and a 1911 .22 out of the Kimber Custom Shop. They are both very nice guns.

    Enjoy your new gun and shoot safe!

    I collect Rimfire Firearms (.17 HMR, 5 mm Magnum, 5 mm Craig , 6 mm Flobert, .22 LR, and .22 Magnum), especially Mossberg's. I look for old, different, unique, or rare rifles and handguns in any rimfire caliber as well as parts.

    First off, sorry for my extended absence. Truthfully, I haven't been active on any forums for many months.

    Now the correction to my statement above. I said that the Kimber Ultra II would be my last CC purchase. Well, that didn't hold true for long. I also purchased the exact same Kimber model in 45 ACP.

    Now the confession to all my Taurus friends - I sacrificed (sold) my Raging Bull 44 mag and my Taurus 1911 to fund the Kimber purchase. And yes it is true, a Kimber IWB is better than two Taurus' in your safe.

    The Ultra Carry II has been on my wish list for a long time. But if I have the opportunity to purchase a firearm, I usually will buy a rifle. In fact, if I had held off on a couple of rifles, I'd have the Kimber!

    I have an Ultra Carry CDP II in .45 acp that was made in '05, and it took a LOT of work to make it reliable. It, and a couple of other kimbers, is why I swore off them years ago.

    A few years ago, my wife saw a pic of a Sapphire Ultra II in 9mm, and said that she'd "really like to have one of those."

    I looked everywhere for one for her for that Mother's Day (figuring she'd never carry it anyway; so no harm), and couldn't find one.

    With the help or a member on another forum; I found out that there was one available at a LGS in Jacksonville. So, one 400 plus mile road trip later; she had one.

    Truth be told; the fit, finish, and quality of the internals was noticeably better than on any of the kimbers that I'd owned, and it was reliable right out of the box (after a detail strip and clean/lube, which I do with every 1911 I buy, anyway). Of course, it damn well should have been, with an MSRP north of $1600.00 at the time).

    And I was right; she's never carried it, but it sure is pretty:

    That Sapphire reminds me of Grandma's living room furniture; it's just there for looking at! LOL!
