It's gorgeous. I have a serious case of envy. Congrats.

Lucky! I hope you have better luck with this one. ;-) Funny you should mention having troubles with the slightly-used Kimber Eclipse...Tam was telling me that about 20 percent of the Kimbers she had seen, had some kind of issue. I hope your luck's better with this one, and as good as mine. I'll be taking the 10mm Stainless Target II out in the morning with a new load. It's eaten all my reloads so far like candy. There's been some raging debate on The High Road about Kimber and other modern 1911 makers of late...I guess I just got some good ones.

They shoot nice too. Expect 1 ragged hole type groups from a clipful at 15 and 25 yards

R U Kidding me? Wait till you shoot that baby, it will be your ccw piece from here on out.

BTW if it is up for sale ask me first....

(No, it's not for sale. But I've got this Eclipse Pro II....)

Nope. I have a long history of non-involvement with women who don't have sisters. It has saved me much confusion.

Kevin, I have the Ultra Carry II (non CDP) and that is my carry gun. Very accurate for such a short gun. I used to carry a Colt Commander and I much prefer the Kimber. I think you will be happy.

Oh I forgot to mention. A few week ago I went to take it apart for cleaning and the spring plunger assembly fell apart. The horse shoe shaped thing at the back of the assembly came unscrewed. I suggest you put some locktite on it. Same for the over travel screw in the trigger.

Okay, what is "carry melt"?

jsid-1186277391-577878  Kevin Baker at Sun, 05 Aug 2007 01:29:51 +0000

A rounding of all the (normally) sharp edges so the pistol won't snag on anything.

Lucky Dog.

Something else may happen as well. Always in threes, right?

Well, I guess this is maybe making up for the recalcitrant Eclipse instead.

Regardless, enjoy.

Congratulations, the only thing I ever won was the draft lottery

jsid-1186316312-577890  Smokin at Sun, 05 Aug 2007 12:18:32 +0000

That's great!! Have fun with it.

jsid-1186321715-577892  Robb Allen at Sun, 05 Aug 2007 13:48:35 +0000

Never mind. I don't like you any more. I'm taking you off my blogroll and tearing up my Kevin Baker Fan Club Official Membership Card (I'm keeping the cool little secret decoder ring though).

Jealousy sucks, man.

And I just left another comment talking about how sweet that thing is.

jsid-1186324611-577894  JR at Sun, 05 Aug 2007 14:36:51 +0000


That is one nice bit of luck.

AN Ultra CDP II was on my shopping list for a while, until I managed to run into a Yost customized Colt Defender for $700 out the door.

Trust me on this one, the pistol handles much better with a magwell on i. I have a SMith and Alexander integrated magwell and mainspring housing on mine. $60 and infinitely more comfortable to shoot.

jsid-1186351892-577902  Morenuancedthanyou at Sun, 05 Aug 2007 22:11:32 +0000

Yowza! Congratulations on your karma!

jsid-1186404276-577916  Roland the Headless Thompson G at Mon, 06 Aug 2007 12:44:36 +0000

You have a winner there. I love mine. No issues at all, ever. Mine wasn't quite as free as yours, though. I had to give up $700 for mine, NIB from a dealer. Still not bad for a $1200 pistol. Someone liked me that day.
You may want to find some smooth wood stocks though. I found the checkered stocks to be quite uncomfortable.

jsid-1186408807-577925  Bruce at Mon, 06 Aug 2007 14:00:07 +0000

You lucky bastard. Congratulations!

jsid-1186411355-577932  Fodder at Mon, 06 Aug 2007 14:42:35 +0000


As they say in NASCAR, you're the lucky dog. ;-)

jsid-1186413037-577935  Robb Allen at Mon, 06 Aug 2007 15:10:37 +0000

Just for your information, I've downgraded my condition from "boiling jealousy" to "seething".

jsid-1186415248-577937  1894C at Mon, 06 Aug 2007 15:47:28 +0000

I'm happy for your luck Kevin.

You work very hard keeping us informed on the state of fight to maintain our RTKBA.

Your prize is certainly well deserved.


jsid-1186436274-577951  USCitizen at Mon, 06 Aug 2007 21:37:54 +0000

Awesome! ... and Congratulations.

She's beautiful.
