Kimber® Ultra Crimson Carry II Pistol
A Work of Art
This is my primary CCW. It is easy to carry and comfortable. I have put about 500 rounds through it and it is deadly accurate both with and without using the laser sight. Unlike the ultra- light weight polymer weapons, this Kimber is heavy enough to absorb a lot of the recoil making it easy on the shooter and provides for quick target reacquisition. Easy to carry, easy & conceal and easyon the shooter, deadly accurate and fun to shoot. I plan on buying a Kimber full size soon. I love it!

IMHO the perfect carry weapon
This is exactly what I was looking for. A light, small, accurate gun. Easy to handle, low recoil. This is a very well made gun of excellent quality. Very comfortable to carry with an IWB holster. You don't even know its there, but packs 7 45 cal rounds. Cons: replace the sights with meprolight night sights. Also, buy the ultra tool that can be found on-line. Really makes breaking down the gun a breeze. These are minor investments that will yield significant improvements making this gun everything you could dream of.

Bought this handgun new in December. Nothing but problems since the first time I fired it. Constant failure to feed issues. Sometimes it even has an issue just chambering the first round off the magazine. I have heard many possible fixes... buy better magazines, change ammo brands, polish your feed ramp, tune your extractor, make sure you have fired at least 500 rounds for your break-in period, etc, etc. I am telling you honestly that none of that has helped this firearm perform as it should. I have put so much money into an already expensive gun that now I am totally disappointed. I bought this for CC but I can't trust it. At all! The only thing left to do is to send it back to Kimber. If you have one that peforms well, then congrats! I think it's a real hit or miss situation with buying the 3" Kimbers. I personally will never own another firearm with the word Kimber on it. It costs way too much money itself for a person to need to put additional money towards it just to make it work.

Runs smooth as butter. Cleaned and re-oiled first (i use grease on 1911s) and have fired almost 100 rds with not a single FTF problem of any kind. I will use only ball ammo for the first 150 rds or so for break in. Accurate and laser is sighted in matching stock iron sights out of the box. Field strip breakdown procedure takes some practice but is helped by buying the special tool for this and not using the "paperclip" tool Kimber supplies. This is my only small criticism. It is comfortable IWB carry for a1911at 25 oz. Pricey but worth the $.
