Kimber Eclipse Pro II

Kimber Eclipse Pro II
 
This is one of my newest additions. I got it mainly because I didn’t have a 1911 and it seems like everyone in the world owns one, so I might as well get one by one of the best manufacturers of them out there, the Kimber 1911. I was actually able to get this handgun This gun comes with all the bells and whistles already, for the most part. A nice trigger, nice grips (a little to rough for my tastes but I can always change that) and tritium sights for at night. I don’t have much to say about this gun as I haven’t had time to take it out and shoot it, as I said, it’s basically for my collection. Though I do keep it close to my bed at night as one of my home protection firearms, so it does have a role, just not a daily carry role or otherwise. As you can see, it’s a lovely firearm straight from the manufacturer and while there are modification you can make, I don’t see me making too many unless I find the trigger needs some work once I shoot it or maybe some different sights; but none the less, here are some pictures of the lovely beast!
