Shooting Illustrated has a lovely little cover gun and a review inside. A Kimber wee 9mm.
From the glossy pictures the fit and finish makes the gun look better than standard run of the mill, and it's a rather handsome Officer size 1911 style, with ambi-safeties. Look at the machining on the back of that guide rod. I am impresses with the styling, the aesthetics. I am a sucker for that chainlink 'checkering.' Solid trigger body is nice. I find skeletonized to be getting a little dated myself.
The single coil recoil spring concerns me a little bit. Not a lotta length to the slide operation, nor a lotta mass so these little guns ask a lot of that spring. I've heard folks say not to expect more than 200 rounds out of one before needing to replace it. Who knows. I do now that if I were to get a pistol like this I'd go in knowing that that was a distinct possibility, and plan accordingly. Maybe I'd be pleasantly surprised with the spring performance and have less to worry about.
What did pique my curiosity was this:
What is that roll pin in the frame above the trigger for? There is another one back by the thumb safety but I have a half an idea what is does. Interesting.
