SHOT SHOW 2014–Kimber’s New Custom TLE/RL II TFS

DSC_0592

Kimber makes a great 1911 and this Custom TLE/RL II TFS is no exception; with one change. It comes with a threaded barrel and “optimized” for the GEMTECH .45 ACP can. I was intrigued by the optimization concept, and after some discussion with the GEMTECH and Kimber folks it appears that Kimber tested its pistol with a variety of loads from a variety of manufacturers with the GEMTECH suppressor; as such, they have a high degree of confidence the pistol will function reliably when paired with the GEMTECH can – although no specific can model was identified. To make a long story short any suppressor equipped with a .578 x 28 thread pattern should work for you.

It is a gorgeous pistol selling at a suggested retail price of $1251. It is quite probable that Kimber will produce threaded and extended barrels for their other 1911’s but don’t look to 2014 for that to happen. If you want a 100% suppressor ready Kimber 1911, the Custom TLE/RL II TFS is what you need to get.
