Its gonna get scuffed a lot worse with the use its going to get.

But, yes, it was handled gently while being photographed.

Its a .45, not the 10mm.

Range report to come soon.

I HAD and M3 I was going to use temporarily until I got a Surefire for it, but somehow my wife claimed it and it is currently residing on her 9mm XD. Still not sure exactly how that happened.

Sad thing is, I loved this gun so much, that when I got it, I put a standard TLE on layaway as well. Should be getting it out very soon. As a long time Springfield proponent/owner, I have to give credit where credit is due. Kimbers are top notch.

Uh negative...1911s are meant to be rode hard. Scratches and worn finish add character and mark it as a tool, not a trinket.

Howja do that, Hawkeye, Santa come early AND knew what you wanted?
Very nice and we are awaiting the range report.

Yes Lumpy, I agree that a workin' gun is a tool...but not a hammer!

Not unless a soft skull gets in the way

I dont pound nails with my guns, but I dont baby them either. Besides, ever notice the more you try to keep something mint looking the more you end up dinging it up?

Hawkeye, is that a 4" barrel? I thought they only came in 5" barrels. Skullworks looks like a 5" barrel with the light on it but the dust cover lines up with the front sirations the same. I have a TLE and a CDP 4" (that my wife keeps trying to steal) she thinks the 4" recoils less than the 5".

The RL is on my next purchase list, look forward to range report.

Them are VZ grips (as advertised elsewhere on this site.) You can buy them at www.vzgrips.com.

Well, I had to do a little horse trading, and, these will be the only two handguns I have, at least until I can get the Pro Carry I want to go with them.



And while this is only the TLE/RL, both it and my TLE are 5 inch, as thats all they come in.
