I have the gun buying urge again, as always. As of late I have been looking at a Kimber Crimson Carry II. It is their full size 1911 with the aluminum alloy frame and steel slide. Sights are plain black and it has the Crimson Laser grips. All I have ever owned is the full size steel 1911's and never really had a urge for others except a Series 70 Colt Light Weight Commander, some day. If I do get this Kimber I would try to sell the Crimson grips, put some cool ones on it, and replace the front sight with a Tritium one. For the rear sight, black in the back works for me. I would want a crisp 4 lb. trigger. Any of you shoot any alloy framed 1911's? Other then a little slower on repeat shots due to weight is their any other issues such as durability? Guess I should see if they make the same set up with out Crimson grips.
