Ha!

It's the ultimate showdown, the Kimber Eclipse Custom II versus the Glock 21! Soon the universe will implode due to the 1911 v. Glock proximity in this very photo!

--NICE looking pair of 45s!

of course, imo, the 1911 looks a heck of a lot better

If you let them touch it will create a kaboom that only glocks have seen.

1911 technology vs 1985 technology... no contest.

it's like comparing a Model T to a Corvette.
or like comparing the UNIVAC to a Sun E20K cluster.

I tried a sand test with my friends new glock and my HK USP 45 full size with 1000 rounds threw it. his glock jammed my hk ran threw the mag.

Testing a 15k gun against almost new ones shows nothing in head to head tests.

EDIT his glock was a 19

Edit 2: His glock fired the round in the chamber than did not fully chamber the next round.

That Kimber is a nice looking autopistol, too bad it's gonna get it's ass kicked.

They look happy together.

Bigbore's thread was the very reason for me to get the Glock 21.

if you leave those two together in the dark, alone, maybe they will create the greatest pistol of all times. just make sure that you have some barry white playing, and maybe light a few candles

You got that right!!!

Glock 21 $560, 2 boxes of WWB .45ACP $39.90, 2 extra G21 13 round mags $32

Not having to replace extractors, mags, grips, triggers, full length guide rods, two trips to the gunsmith and all around kicking the 1911's ass.......

PRICELESS


GLOCK=PREFECTION

I know I will get flamed for that one....but I don't care

The plastic one looks like they forgot to put the little red cap on the end. It is pretty tricked up though, 'cause I still can't figger out where to put the water in.

That thread is one of the best testiments to the strength of the Glock pistol that will ever be.

With that said, I always thought the spring/guide rod setup bigbore used played a big part in how well that pistol functioned in the tests.

A flat recoil spring w/ a soft(er) plastic guide rod would be more prone to catching up sand (or bead blasting media I suppose) and jamming up the works.

Certainly they are two .45s worth having. If you had a CZ97B in that picture it would be the perfect trio.

Actually, the Kimber is all stainless (the Eclipse comes with the flat black already applied as seen above), and the other is Tenifer, so neither will rust
