Jay, why is it some Kimbers have "custom shop" by the Kimber, but some don't? I thought Kimbers were all from the custom shop? Is there something that differentiates it?
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.

Not sure what era my Eclipse II is from. If I remember correctly I purchased it new in 2000/2001. It has always been one of the best shooting and most accurate .45's I have shot and like us all, I have shot many. I shot it in USPSA back then and it was far more accurate than many others at the time. The new ones are probably even nicer/better now coming from Kimber.

That Raptor looks nice. I love the SuperAmerica 1911! Just found one on line for $2700. Looks like I better start saving! It just jumped several guns at the top of my "must have" list. I heard a saying a long time ago - The only difference between men and boys are the price of their toys. Sometimes I miss being a boy, it was much cheaper!!

All Kimbers have hand fitting. Beyond that they have their Custom Shop guns where one person builds the gun from beginning to end. They do one hell of a job.

My Eclipse was only made in the Custom Shop when I bought it. It was the first one to hit the master distributor and I was checking it in. It never made it to the gun case. If you notice it is Actually called a
"Pro Eclipse II".

It was so popular Kimber made it a catalog item but re-named it
"Eclipse Pro II"

On a side note people think EA can be slow. Back in 1991 I dropped off my Colt 45 and waited 2 years to get it back from customizing. No CNC caspian frames sitting around like now.

Thanks for the education, Jay!

No one has ever told me that bit of information, before. I get it now; custom shop guns are fitted by ONE gunsmith.

You shoot them with the tags on?

Wow... that's something I've never seen.

Well, I've seen it on FsN's.

Actually not true, when I carry a .45acp it's this:

I added the one in the middle for my 50th birthday present. Had to have a Detonics .45 in all three sizes.
