Kimber LTP II .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Kimber LTP II was very accurate, and trigger pulls were shockingly nice for a factory 1911. The Bo-Mar–like sights were easily adjusted, and held their adjustment. Other than a problem with the off-side safety lever failing to disengage — which cured itself with use — the controls operated smoothly. Unfortunately, our test piece was not particularly reliable.
