This is the 1911, I'm wanting to buy..... I have read the Kimbers have extractor problems, but have no experience with the Kimbers myself, but a friend of mine talks highly about the Kimbers
Kimber produced the Eclipse I and II a few years back. These guns had the external extractors and they did have some problems with FF and FE. Kimber dropped the external extractor guns.
. I don't keep up with all the Kimber models out but I don't think they are producing external exractor guns now.
My experiance with Kimber has been good, but there are some on the forum that have had issues with them.
