Our Assessment: Kimber’s line of Tactical pistols are certainly beautiful, they show absolute craftsmanship and innovative variations of Browning’s original 1911 design. You would have to pay a lot of money for a gunsmith to take your typical 1911 anywhere close to this level. It is small enough to carry concealed but has the bight of a much larger pistol.
