    ***Price lowered to $1400*** OK, so I will admit that my title statement is a rather subjective one, but I haven't seen another OC setup that is quite as attractive as the one I'm now selling. Wearing this one, I have gotten nothing but "Hey, wow...NICE gun." compliments. It's been good to me, but I'm trying to raise funds to focus on other projects.So, all good things must come to an end, here's the stats:

    Kimber Stainless TLE "II" w/factory nightsights, 30lpi frontstrap checkering, match trigger group. Hogue Cocobolo smooth wood grips. Crimson Trace LG-401 lasergrips (not pictured). Wilson Combat .22LR conversion kit w/2 mags. 3 Wilson Combat 47D mags, 2 W.C. "E.T.M." mags, a single W.C. 10 rd mag, and a single stainless factory 7rd.Kimber mag. Carbon Fiber Blackhawk SERPA rig w/paddle attachment, Don Hume JIT slide, Safariland Double MP, Galco "Concealable" SMP. The gun was sent to Champion Arms for a "Kimber Package" about 3 years ago, which included a chamber throat/feed ramp mirror polishing, the action was tuned and smoothed out (feels like glass when cycled) and the trigger was tuned to add crispiness! (You need to feel the trigger on this gun to believe it!) Absolutely no FTF/FTE/etc. since the work was performed.



    The package:



    The Wilson Conversion Kit showed installed: (the group shown was shot w/cheapo Remington "Golden Bullet" load @ 15 yards.)



    Over $2K invested, I'd be willing to part w/$1400 FTF in W.WA or some seriously nice trades. I like high quality defensive pistols and have possibly caught the "black rifle bug" as my buddy just picked up an AR. So I might entertain offers on an AR or Sig 556 or HK clone in .223 or 9mm.

    Man that's pretty!

    If only I were richer, I'd pick that up.

    Covering up that pretty gun with that ugly black holster should be a crime. I have a Ciener 22LR conversion kit for my SA Champion (Commander sized 1911) than I use almost exclusively anymore. Cheaper to shot bya 100 times.

    OK.....I'll admit it......your Kimber is prettier than mine......happy now? :P

    If I hadn't already jumped on the one I have, your offer would be mighty tempting......that's a lot of good stuff for the price......the Serpa, mags and mag holder I'd be interested in, but not sure if you are looking to sell the pieces without selling it all.........let me know.

    The Wilson Combat conversion kit is actually a "rebadged" Ciener. I've never experienced a failure to feed w/any .22 ammo on that thing. A couple of dead primers, but I've shot brick after brick w/the conversion kit, and then go back to the .45 slide, and magically, my aim has improved. Imgine that!

    I agree, a greatest accessory everyone would find useful.Only God knows how may rounds thru it and never a malfunction and the sights shoot to point of aim.

    I'll ship it all to your FFL for another $50. That's always an option!

    LOL! I guess it wouldn't help if I told you that I'll actually be in Lakewood at some point this afternoon, huh?

    Park at the gate and walk the 3/4 mile to the buildings. I'm usually there for paperwork, they wouldn't treat me there anyways, I don't "qualify."

    Some of us poor oldforked up old vets that do qualify, can't walk that far. And my wife sure as hell isn't gonna carry me.

    G20 I sent you a PM. I don't know if the PM's work on this site or not.

    I used to play golf on the VA course when I could tag along with a buddy of mine.

    Still available, guys and gals. Send your trade offers (please be realistic), the worst I can say is "no, thanks." Interested in "tactical" pistols, smaller CCW pistols (Kahr, Detonics, etc), mean-black rifles (AR & HK clones, etc), Benelli M1-Super 90 Tac. 12 guages, and tricked out Ruger 10/22's, and possibly, everything else. Or cash is good. I'm going back to school, so cash is always good.

    Yeah, Bear. I am interested. What's the setup worth? (I guess we could go to PM level at this point.)

    This bad boy is still available, and I'm looking to move on it soon. Price lowered to $1400, or send me your trade offers.
