2011 is the 100th anniversary of one of John Moses Browning’s most iconic handguns. AmericanRifleman.org is kicking off its year-long celebration of the 1911 with the “This Is My 1911” photo gallery to give our readers a place to share the stories of their 1911s. Upload a photo of your 1911 (please follow all firearm safety rules) and tell us why this is your 1911.
This is my Kimber TLE/RL II in .45ACP. I bought it used and already set up the way you see it here. It has a Gunsite lowered thumb safety, walnut stocks and a "Tactical Wedge" mainspring housing (that I intend to change to a regular arched mainspring housing). Of course it also has the 30lpi checkered front strap, beavertail grip safety and Meprolight night sights that all Kimber TLE models come with. Since this photo was taken I have also equipped it with a Streamlight TLR-1 weaponlight and a pair of Crimson Trace Pro Series Lasergrips (dipped to look like burlwood). This is my everyday carry gun, and it is extremely accurate and 100% reliable.
