That would be my question too. I was just offered a Kimber for 500, I'm on the fenceSilver Run...what do you have against the Kimber polymer frame gun BP TENs. I have one and love it....shoots more accurate than I can hold it, weighs less than an alloy or steel frame, holds many more rounds, and has better texturing on the grips that any stock 1911 I have held. Its my favorite gun, so what do you have to say about it? Let us know why you hate something instead of just saying so.
