Nice. My next purchase will be a TLE/RL.

Welcome to Klub Kimber.

I don't have any hard facts.

I can't point to any personal experience.

But that external extractor/ejector I do not like.

Other than that she looks nice.

Hope you enjoy her.

I don't get it. That IS the matte stainless. Polished stainless Kimbers look like this:

Although it looks rather strange on a 1911, it is a tougher, more reliable design.

Beautiful gun. Now get out and put some rounds down range with your Wilson 47Ds. You do have a case of ammo to go, right? You do have at least 6 Wilson 47Ds, right? If not, what the heck are you waiting for Hop to it!
