    Hello all, I decided to see what all the fuss was about so I picked up 1 used kimber ultra carry II and 1 new kimber custom II , they are very nice to look at and handle, they are very accurate, they are very fussy about ammo at first but after about 500 rounds in each they are now almost as reliable as my hipoint was right out of the box, I shoot nothing but my own reloads and all lead bullets, if I run across one that does'nt chamber in the kimber I save it for the hipoint, swhat say you, rich pyle

    ;)So in other words you paid $1000. to get a gun that after 500 rounds will do what a $159. gun will do straight out of the box?:loco:

    To me this kind of "over praise" post is almost as laughable as a full on "hi point hate" post.

    So you just out of the blue dropped close to two thousand dollars on a couple of Kimbers. Ok...
    And your going to say that neither work as well as a Hi Point?
    As an owner of both, im gonna call false. Sorry, they are a better gun by a hundred fold in terms of quality and design. Some hollow point ammo can be finicky in a 1911, they also weren't designed to use it, so that's not really a flaw.
    The trigger is smoother, the action is far superior and overall they are just better in every aspect.
    That being said, hipoint makes a quality gun at a ridiculously affordable price. But it will never be better than a Kimber. Never. Unless for its ability to anchor a small freight ship, there is no category it is superior in.

    We all love our HP's here, but youre exxagerating just a touch.

    And before you pull the "youre a gun snob" line, not even close. I like crappy old commie guns, far from any brand loyalty ir snobbery.

    Odd Post... so few before it.
    I smell a... dare I say it? :D

    I got a Kimber for $685 NEW, at the LGS#1,
    so it's not like you have to spend $2k on 2 Kimbers...
    Could be done for under $1500 for one new and one used ;)

    Usually a troll tries to pee in everyone's cereal, so why would they take this rout? Maybe to see how many weigh it?

    Even though I am on too many gun forums, I guess I don't see the point of posting 9 times, just to get an argument going.

    1500 is still damn near 2000. The slight difference is really irrelevant to the actual point.

    I guess after reading it closer, he's inferring that his HP will shoot and cycle
    whatever the Kimber's refuse? Still odd, but making more sense. Rarely do
    Kimber owners go and buy an HP, and HP owners rarely jump up to Kimber
    level. I first bought HPs so I could "gun up" for the imminent SHTF, and I
    since sold off 2 C9s, and 1 each JHP and JCP... and I also have a Kimber
    almost paid off in "Lay-a-way Jail" that I will have before year's end ;)
    I have another 1911 already, a Citadel, which is a top drawer Rock Island.
    Very Fine Weapon, I'm hoping the Kimber is just as good after break in! :D

    I don't think he's trolling, i just think he's sucking up a bit too hard.

    Hello all, your a bit overreacting, I merely was trying to state that my hipoint is just as reliable as my 2 kimbers, and btw, the ultra carry was $328.00 out the door used and the custom II was $588.00 out the door brand new, I never lntended this to be a quality thing as I know the hipoint for what it is, a good accurate range fun gun, and for what its worth I absolutely had to break my kimbers in shooting around 500 rounds. And I am not a troll, rich pyle

    So has the Hi Point always cycled and shot the rounds that the
    KIMBERs could not? That's my only remaining question... :confused:

    to answer your question yes, lead swc will not always function in my new custom II[they do in the ultra carry maybe because its older] but they will in my hipoint honest, and also anyone who owns a kimber knows how tight the chambers can be at the leade. rich pyle

    Slow your roll there Talon.

    The guy said "reliable." Nothing more. Not "fit." Not "finish." Not "quality materials." Just "reliable."

    Peace favor your sword (mobile)
     
  16. i have shot the ultra carry 2 and had zero issues that. now the kimber solo it was a jam-o-matic even after changing the spring may try some store ammo

    Good to know these things... mine is the Two-Tone Custom II
    I'm sure it will be like most Kimbers, a bit tight at first!

    I thought he was done for the most part.

    I alluded to "trolling" but did not say it. Used my ninja/jedi powers
    to get Hi-Pointer to say it, which triggered a <ahem>
    "Mod-Type Action" :eek: :(

    Nice looking kimber, mine is just all blued(black) with the rubber grips, be patient with it , and if you can afford it use factory ammo for breakin, mine ran factory ammo much better, rich pyle
