    how long is the average wait for a gun, ordered from Kimber ? I had ordered a Grand Raptor II from Kimber on may 20, 06. doe's it take that long to get this gun? I had called them twice now and they tell me not to much longer.

    That's a sweet looking 1911 Smallblock, I wanted to get the Raptor II, but the finances just wouldn't allow it, so I'm getting the Custom II.
    I already have the Limited Edition Target Match, and absolutely love it, I use it mostly for bullseye matches. I'm getting the Custom II for steel plate, and bowling pin shoots, plus it'll also be my home defense weapon.

    Good luck with that Grand Raptor, it's one hell of a pistol......:D

    I didn't have to wait long at all to get mine in. I may have ordered at just the right time.

    Sorry you are having trouble. Scroll down the main page and you will find instructions for adding pictures.

    Your pics need to be sized to about 5x7.

    Sign up for a free account at www.photobucket.com and upload them there. Then you can link them to this site, it's how I do it......

    Tony, you can load the pics from your computer. No need for photobucket.

    I know, I was just offering another option. The photobucket thing works if your image is too big to load direct to this forum, they also allow you to easily downsize your photo's so they don't appear too large.

    It took me a while to figure this out, I hope these pitcures are ok.
