Kimber DET-1 or Kimber TLE w/rail?

Neither... find yourself a good Series 1 Classic Custom, throw a set of Heinie Slant-Pros w/inserts in it, and call it good. I’m not a fan of the Series 2 hogwash or the pointless external extractors found on the new guns. But I guess if I had to choose the DET-1 or TLE it would be the TLE.... but no light rail.

Det 1

Very hard choice. I LOVE my new TLE/RL. Absolutely LOVE it. However, the DET-1 is sweet as well.

I think this is the FIRST time I have ever posted this on here, but, in this case, get both. As soon as I have my standard TLE out of layaway, I'll be working on getting/doing a DET-1.

Lightfighter.com has a group buy for the DET-1. I'm probably just going to go ahead and get the DET-1. Who knows when a DET-1 will come available again. I'll just set my sights on getting the TLE next year.

Ditto.

"I’m not a fan of the Series 2 hogwash..."

If this is the same gun the Marines are using, it is a series 1.

Never mind. I just read the other thread, where it says the commercial version is series 2.

I've made up my mind to go ahead and jump on the DET-1 group buy. I can always pick up a Kimber TLE next year.
