The guy who was behind the Counter is a idiot .. I have 3 baers got 6 colts 3 DW''s 3 Springers and a host of other 1911's had a custom shop kimber from the early custom shop when they were doing their best work .. while Kimbers colts springfield and all productions guns are nice they dont even comeb close to a semi custom like a bear wilson or ed brownHandled a Kimber TLE this Friday and I've decided to just do it! I've kicked around the idea of buying a Les Baer or Wilson or some other very reputable gun guru gun but have come to the conclusion the TLE is about what I want without the very high price. No ambi safety, no bells and whistles, just a good solid gun that will go bang every time. The guy behind the counter owns two Les Baers and three Kimbers. He says the LBs cost twice as much but are not twice the guns. SOLD! I can always get the LB later on. And I can work the Kimber over if needed. I just gotta get my first (not really) serious 1911. Should have the money put together by Feb..:nuts:
I always thought the Semi custom were to over priced but after getting my first one i see why everyone raves about them..Always ask them this question it usually stammers them how can a 1k production gun that is mass produced and packed full of MIM parts every surpass a 1800$ handfit with barstock parts gun ...?
Sorry if i sound harsh i hate salesman espically the ones who will tell you anything to get you to buy
Long story short dont believe the guy behind the counter he is usually trying to sell you whats in stock ..
