I saw a couple of these at the gunshow today. It's a really nice looking piece, but the price was a little steep, under $1K. Today was the first time I've heard of these, let alone actually seeing one. One of the things I noticed is that they don't have the dreaded Schwartz safety that the Series II's have. That brings me to ask, if they can make this series available to Joe Public, less the FP safety, why can't they do that with all of their models and get back the customer base they lost when the introduced the Series II. I'm a Kimber fan from from way back, but they lost me with the Series II and I've since migrated to STI. I always thought Kimber was an excellent value for the money, and I'd love to go back to buying them again, but until the FP safety goes away, it's just not going to happen..
