Kimber Custom TLE II 3200347 10mm Auto, $1028

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Custom TLE II is an excellent version of a full-size 1911 platform chambered in 10mm. We would have liked the grips to be less textured because they chewed up our hands.

The extended beavertail offered a good hold, but the sharp edge of the mainspring housing caused some palm ache for some shooters.
Between the checkered grip and aggressively textured G10 grip panels, the TLE II rasped some testers' hands like a cheese grater.
The front sight is dovetailed into the slide.
The night sights on the Kimber were easy to use, offering the shooter an excellent sight picture.
The Kimber showed tight, but smooth, slide-to-frame fit. Takedown was traditional 1911 style. This is a very good gun, but it's more money than the Witness. If you're willing to spend a few minutes Dremeling off some sharp edges, then this gun can work for you.
