I have always found them to be very reliable and very accurate. When I got the call asking if I would like to shoot one of their Crimson Carry models I was more than delighted but I did not expect any surprises. I was wrong, and more on that later.
It may have been years since Frankenstein scared black-and-white moviegoers out of their seats, but the storyline that paralyzed entire Saturday-matinee crowds has become something of a recurring nightmare for 1911 fans. The list of aftermarket sights, triggers, grips, bushings and barrels is staggering and growing by the day. Most are fine products and easily bolted on, but if you get carried away, it's not long until your personal-defense handgun is big, clunky and unable to outrun angry, torch-wielding Transylvanian mobs.
Choice is a funny thing. We all want it, but few of us actually use it. When the average buyer walks into a gun store filled with firearms they light up like a kid at a candy store. The majority of these buyers walk out with one of ten popular models. The story’s a bit different when the price tag crests a grand. For that money, customers want something different. Only not really. What they really, really want is something dead reliable that looks, feels and shoots like a custom gun, without all the risk of buyer’s remorse posed by true customization. Something like the Kimber Custom Crimson Carry II.
