I have a non rail TRP getting work done at Nighthawk right now and a Dan Wesson Vigil Commander, but I want the Emissary just to have something slightly different.
Link for you, I like it, but afraid a little expensive thoughI have to check that one out I do like a full size 1911
there are what seem like similarities for sure.I wonder if the Emissary is kinda intended as Spgfld’s alternate to the Black Ice…
well Anni, that's the "thing"....reading the good stuff, against the bad stuff (of guys that still own Kimber but will not get rid of them, or did long ago), i am basing my sales purchases on the "not to buy" crowd.Got 2 Kimbers here, Custom II duel tone in 9mm, and a pro carry II duel tone in .45, no issues whatsoever
Understand, my only issue with Kimber was a micro-9, after first range time, guide rod bent and there CS wouldn’t replace it stating it was my fault that it happened, told me I didn’t know how to reassemble it right so they were not going to cover it, so, I picked up another guide rod and traded it off.well Anni, that's the "thing"....reading the good stuff, against the bad stuff (of guys that still own Kimber but will not get rid of them, or did long ago), i am basing my sales purchases on the "not to buy" crowd.
i know, it's like anything else, anything can be a lemon, from an outstanding company, it happens.
in fact for along time, my LGS, DID NOT even have them, now they got like a couple of models now.
yeah, i got that Colt 1911 series 70 no roll marks, it's been flawlessIf truth be known, I have had more trouble and issues with Colt’s 1911’s over the years, mostly there series 80 model.
Nice pistol, personally, I think Colt messed up on the series 80, but I had 2 series 70 pistols, my brother still owns one I gave him, only changed the recoil and firing pin springs
my Remington R-1911 had that. ( i liked that gun, but sold it to my buddy)Yea, I hate the Swartz safety that Kimber uses, makes it a tad more difficult to tear down and reassemble
Are all Kimbers series 80 / Schwartz ??Yea, I hate the Swartz safety that Kimber uses, makes it a tad more difficult to tear down and reassemble
All Kimber 1911’s have the Schwartz safety on them.Are all Kimbers series 80 / Schwartz ??
I’ve never owned a K… and probably won’t if they don’t come 70.
Like all ‘old sayings’ it’s a bit loose-goose, but I’m reminded of the old Soviet cold war adage “Better is the enemy of Good Enough”….their version of our KISS principle (keep it simple, stupid! )
