New Kimber & Rock Island
Finally shot both pistols off my back porch bench. Kimber Pro Carry II with crimson trace light & $400 Rock Island; the Rock Island was a better shooter outta the box, ha.
The Kimber was shooting 2-3 feet low with stk sight & also a foot low with crimson trace at 30 yards off sand bags; also to the right 2 inches but probably me at that.
The Rock Island was on paper every time at 30 yards; pretty much I could hit a moose, no problem with that gun; and I'm gonna try this fall too.
When my boy shot at 10 yards, the Kimber was on paper but low. He hit bullseye with R.I. several times.
So what sights should I look at ordering for both these guns? I could see red light on paper at 30 yards too with Kimber.
We're going to shoot a few more boxes of ammo before doing anything though. Just if the caribou show up, I'll have to shoot 2 foot over their backs to hit them with that $1100 Kimber, the $400 Rock Island is pretty good right now.
What other 1911's are good functional accurate guns in the lower price range; 400-600 bucks?
